The exceptional characteristics of hardwood flooring
Ask any homeowner what their dream floor covering is, and most of them would quickly tell you, hardwood flooring. It's been that way for years. You see, solid wood floors are one of the most timeless, elegant floor coverings that seem to never go out of style. No matter what the current trend is in décor, remodeling, or home renovations, you can rest assured, this material will be right at home on the floors.

For starters, you have two different options when it comes to hardwood flooring. The first is solid wood and, as the name might let on, this flooring is one solid piece of wood, top to bottom. The other is engineered wood, which is a veneer of real wood placed between a composite backing and a protective top layer.
Both are great flooring products, each with their own strengths, but with some important differences. For instance, engineered flooring can be placed anywhere in the home, but solid products must be placed at or above grade. Some homeowners actually make use of both products in the same home, in order to keep the continuity of the look throughout the whole house. With solid floor coverings in the upper levels of the house, and engineered in the basement, you'll maintain that gorgeous all-wood look, no matter what room you're in.
