Solid Hardwood Flooring

Solid hardwood flooring is what most people think of when they imagine a hardwood floor. The flooring is simply a plank of wood that is cut to a specific width, length, and thickness. Hardwood floors are certainly desirable, but each home is unique and will require the right type of wood flooring to match its particular set of circumstances. There is no doubt that solid hardwood floors are beautiful, durable, and an excellent addition to any home or commercial space. Before deciding on which floor to choose, though, take a moment to learn about some of the other decisions that should be factored in before deciding on a color and a look. Below are a few points that you may not yet have considered.

Above Grade & On Grade
On which level is the floor?

With solid hardwoods, it is very important to know where the floor is going to go in your house. There are some areas where a solid hardwood should not go. If you are considering an area that is below the ground outside, an engineered hardwood or a manufactured wood-alternative such as our Waterproof Rigid-Core (The Summit Collection) should be considered. If you are unsure, a retailer can help you to find out.

Sub Floor
What is your subfloor?

Do you know what your beautiful, new floor will be laying on top of? If not, you’ll need to find that out before you go any further. Solid hardwoods are typically only installed over a wood subfloor. If your new floor is being installed over something else (concrete slab, for example), you may need to have wood sub-flooring installed first or look at some other flooring options.

Podium Trees
Which tree is best?

What kind of wood should you choose? Does it even matter? The answer to this is, of course, maybe. Will this flooring be going into a high-traffic area like a hallway or a main entry? Will it be going into a children’s area like a playroom? Do you (or will you ever) have pets in your home? What happens on top of your floor will dictate which kind of wood you need.

Tape Measure
How much do you need?

Once all of the questions have been answered, there is still one very important decision. Buying too much flooring is obviously a waste of money, but buying too little can also cost you since a second load involves a second delivery truck. Even if there is someone else calculating this, it’s still a good idea to understand how they got the number. (Not saying, just saying…)
