For generations, homes across the country have been enjoying the beauty, versatility, and longevity of hardwood floors. Unfinished hardwood offers the homeowner, and home builder an endless array of options to customize their hardwood floor to meet their unique style and needs.
Homeowners today are looking to update their homes by installing new hardwood floors but don’t want to go through the time and mess of having them sanded and finished on site. They also do not want to expose their family and pets to potentially harmful vapors from stains and finishes so they are looking at pre-finished hardwood as an option.
Laminate flooring has provided home owners and other home professionals a hardwood looking flooring option at a fraction of the cost of a traditional hardwood floor.
When most people think of hardwood floors, they think of a ¾” solid hardwood floor. Today, many manufacturers have developed engineered hardwood flooring that can perform at the same level or even better than solid hardwood!
One of the main advantages of engineered hardwood flooring is in its stability. In the right environment, engineered hardwood flooring can be much more stable to changes in humidity and temperature, especially in widths over 5” versus solid hardwood.
Most engineered hardwood flooring is designed specifically to be installed either by gluing or floating making it an ideal choice for installation over concrete slab substrates.

This means that imperfections in your subfloor will not telegraph through to the wear layer once installed. Rigid Core Waterproof flooring is also 100% waterproof! No need to worry about the kids or dog making a mess on the floor.
