Hard floors? FYI…….

A quick lesson in wood floors
Thinking about installing wood floors? The first decision you need to make
involves the type. According to the National Wood Flooring Association,
there are four types:

 

• Unfinished. This type requires you or your installer to sand and
apply a finish. If you want a specific colour or style, or you’re trying to
match existing flooring, this might be the best option for you.

• Factory finished. As the name suggests, this is flooring that has its
finish applied in the factory. Although it is more expensive, factory
finished flooring can be installed faster and can be walked upon
immediately.

• Solid. This is flooring that is made from a solid piece of wood, top to
bottom. The advantage is that it can be sanded and refinished many
times over the years, or even decades.

• Engineered. This is flooring that is made of thin layers of wood
pressed together. It can be engineered to be very durable and
expand and contract less than solid flooring.

 

•The type you choose depends on your needs. Talk to your dealer or
contractor about your specific application.
