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.

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.
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…)
