Hardwood Flooring Types
There are lots of hardwoods that are great for any home, office or apartment. There are differences in the way that each piece is constructed and designed. The finish and harvesting methods are also what make the hardwoods so unique.
Solid hardwoods come in ¾” thickness. These come from a single piece of hardwood cut into smaller planks. They are only installed above grade which prevents any warping in Dayton. Solid hardwoods are never installed over concrete or concrete slabs.
Engineered floors come available in different thicknesses. These generally range anywhere from ¼” to a ½”. When they are constructed; they are glued together in several wood piles in order to form one single plank.
This type of hardwood is extremely popular. Hand-scraped flooring is wooden planks that have been scraped by hand in order to give each piece a worn, ancient look. These come available in engineered and solid constructions.
The term “exotic” means in terms of being from various places throughout the word. In this case flooring may come from far away areas such as:
- South America
This type of hardwood is very similar to hand-scraped. Distressed hardwoods are a contrast to the hand-scraped as they are machine scraped. This is what gives the hardwoods a unique looking texture which makes it an asset for any home.
Care for Hardwood Floors
Today’s finishes have made it a lot easier to care for hardwoods. There are still some basic procedures that need to be followed in order to keep them maintained:
- Never wet mop
- Vacuum regularly
- Use floor protection for tables and chairs
