Hardwood durability you can trust

As an all-natural material, hardwood flooring offers an incredible level of durability. These floors can last over 100 years with professional installation and regular maintenance. Under the same circumstance, engineered materials offer up to 30 years and can be installed in below-grade spaces. Choosing the suitable species has a lot to do with your floor's durability. Each species offers a different hardness level for your specific and successful results. Of course, the busier and more active your household, the harder your chosen species should be.

Wood floor installation facts and more

Acclimation helps alleviate warping, cracking, and splitting after installation. The process takes one to three days, helping ensure the same moisture levels between the flooring and installation environment. Once acclimated, a successful installation can begin.

It’s important to note that solid hardwood cannot be installed in below-grade areas. Engineered flooring is a perfect alternative, however. When you’re ready to discuss your installation needs, be sure to visit our showroom.
