Solid or Engineered Wood?
One of the biggest considerations when it comes to wood floor installation in Orange County is the type of flooring to use. Solid hardwood floors are made of a solid piece of wood with no layers. Engineered hardwood is constructed with both layers of hardwood and plywood. Although many people believe that hardwood floors are the desired choice, engineered floors have come a long way. Engineered hardwood has durable, high performance qualities such as being water resistant. It’s a great choice for kitchens and bathrooms. Since engineered wood is composed of several layers, each going in a different direction, it isn’t as prone to moisture as traditional hardwood flooring, making it an ideal choice for below ground installation. Engineered wood is also traditionally easier to care for.
Solid wood floor installation is known for its quality and longevity, with many floors that have been properly cared for lasting decades. One of the most unique qualities of traditional hardwood flooring is that each piece is unique with no two pieces looking exactly alike. Hardwood flooring has been around for centuries, making it a timeless choice that goes with many decor styles. There is a wide variety of wood types, widths and lengths. One of the biggest issues with solid wood floors is they are extremely vulnerable to moisture and are prone to expansion and contraction. This makes them unsuitable for kitchens, bathrooms and basements. Solid wood floors must be nailed down so a proper sub floor must be present. The advantage of solid wood floors is that they can be sanded and refinished multiple times.
