Immaculate Hardwood Flooring Options

At Tile Superstore & more, we take pride in offering an extensive selection of hardwood flooring to suit your unique style and practical needs. Whether you're renovating your home or enhancing a commercial space, our hardwood flooring options are designed to elevate any environment.

Choosing the right type of hardwood flooring is essential for achieving the look and functionality you desire. Here's a breakdown of the three primary types of hardwood floors we have to offer:

Solid Hardwood Flooring

This classic option is crafted from a single piece of wood and offers timeless elegance. Solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished multiple times, providing excellent longevity. However, it's susceptible to moisture and temperature fluctuations and is best suited for above-ground rooms.

Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered wood flooring consists of layers of real wood veneer bonded to high-quality plywood or fiberboard. It offers greater stability against moisture and temperature changes, making it suitable for below-ground spaces and areas with varying climates.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring replicates the look of hardwood through a high-resolution image layer bonded to a dense core material. While it's more budget-friendly and resistant to scratches and dents, it doesn't offer the same authenticity as real wood. Laminate is especially ideal for high-traffic areas and homes with pets.

The Latest Types of Wood Species

The choice of wood species contributes to the unique character of your hardwood floors. Some of the more popular species of wood we have in stock include:

  • Oak: Known for its durability and timeless appeal, oak offers a range of natural colors and grain patterns.

  • Maple: With a fine, uniform texture and a pale, creamy color, maple creates a clean and modern look.

  • Hickory: Renowned for its strength and distinctive graining, hickory adds a rustic charm to any space. Our showroom features a wide variety of wood species, allowing you to explore your options and find the perfect fit for your design vision.

Choose Your Hardwood Flooring Finish

Our hardwood floors come with a variety of beautiful finishes, each one with its unique characteristics. Here are a few of the more popular choices we recommend when it comes to hardwood flooring finishes:

  • Wax: Provides a natural and matte look, but requires regular reapplication for maintenance.

  • Oil: Offers a natural appearance and is easy to spot repair, but may need periodic reoiling.

  • Urethane (Polyurethane): The most popular choice, urethane provides a durable and glossy finish, minimizing maintenance needs.

Our Hardwood Flooring Installation Process

Our hardwood flooring installation process is a meticulous and professional approach that ensures a beautiful and long-lasting result. Here's an overview of all the steps involved:

  • Subfloor Preparation: Inspection and preparation of the subfloor to ensure a level and clean surface.

  • Acclimation: Allowing the hardwood to acclimate to the room's humidity and temperature.

  • Layout Planning: Determining the layout and pattern of the hardwood planks.

  • Installation: Precise installation of hardwood planks using the chosen method (nail-down, glue-down, or floating).

  • Sanding and Finishing: Sanding the floor to a smooth surface, followed by the application of the chosen finish.

  • Cleanup and Inspection: Thorough cleanup and inspection to ensure a flawless installation.

Hardwood Flooring Maintenance Tips

Proper maintenance is key to preserving the beauty and longevity of your hardwood floors. Here are some essential tips when it comes to ensuring your hardwood flooring looks and performs its best for many years to come:

  • Use a soft-bristle broom or microfiber mop for regular cleaning.

  • Avoid excessive moisture and clean up spills promptly.

  • Use recommended hardwood floor cleaners and avoid harsh chemicals.

  • Place felt pads under furniture legs to prevent scratches.

  • Consider area rugs in high-traffic areas.

Comparing Your Hardwood Flooring Options

To help you make an informed decision, we've prepared a detailed comparison of some of the more popular hardwood flooring options, including laminate, engineered, and solid hardwood flooring, allowing you to choose the best option for your project:

Circle Caret Icon Cost

Laminate: Laminate flooring is the most budget-friendly option among the three. It's often significantly less expensive than both engineered and solid hardwood.

Engineered: Engineered wood flooring typically falls in the mid-range regarding cost. While it may be more affordable than solid hardwood, it tends to be pricier than laminate.

Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood is usually the most expensive of the three. The cost varies depending on the wood species, but it's generally higher due to its authenticity and longevity.

Circle Caret Icon Durability

Laminate: Laminate is highly durable and resistant to scratches, stains, and fading. It's an excellent choice for high-traffic areas and homes with pets.

Engineered: Engineered wood offers good durability, with its multiple layers providing stability against moisture and temperature fluctuations. However, it has a limited number of sanding and refinishing opportunities compared to solid hardwood.

Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood is exceptionally durable and can last for generations with proper care. It can be sanded and refinished multiple times, allowing it to withstand heavy use and still look beautiful.

Circle Caret Icon Installation Methods

Laminate: Laminate flooring typically uses a floating installation method. It features a click-and-lock or tongue-and-groove system that doesn't require adhesives. This makes it a popular choice for DIY projects.

Engineered: Engineered wood can be installed using various methods, including nail-down, glue-down, or floating. The method chosen depends on the subfloor and manufacturer's recommendations.

Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood is commonly installed using a nail-down method, where boards are nailed to the subfloor. This method requires more expertise and professional installation.

Circle Caret Icon Moisture Resistance

Laminate: Laminate is highly resistant to moisture, making it suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.

Engineered: Engineered wood offers better moisture resistance compared to solid hardwood, thanks to its layered construction. However, it's still not recommended for areas with excessive moisture.

Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood is susceptible to moisture and should not be installed in areas prone to water exposure.

Circle Caret Icon Maintenance

Laminate: Laminate is low-maintenance and easy to clean with regular sweeping and occasional damp mopping. It doesn't require refinishing.

Engineered: Engineered wood is also relatively low-maintenance, with occasional refinishing needed, depending on wear and tear.

Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood requires regular maintenance, including refinishing every 10-20 years, depending on the level of use and wear.

Circle Caret Icon Environmental Impact

Laminate: Laminate is generally considered more eco-friendly than solid hardwood due to its use of recycled materials and efficient manufacturing processes.

Engineered: Engineered wood may be considered eco-friendlier than solid hardwood because it uses less hardwood in its construction.

Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood may have a higher environmental impact due to the amount of hardwood required, but sustainably sourced options are available.
