Solid wood floor installation
Solid wood flooring is created from a single plank of hardwood, coated with a protective layer. They can easily be sanded and refinished many times in their life span. They will expand and contract if there are humidity changes and they should not be installed in rooms where humidity is high.
• Oak: Rigid and dense, oak has an open grain and gives off a traditional warmth. It comes in a variety of shades of white and red and takes stains very well.
• Hickory: Hickory is one of the hardest and most durable hardwoods, making it perfect for more active homes. It has a dramatic grain pattern and wide color variation in each board, giving it a rustic appeal.
• Ash: Ash is similar to oak flooring but has a more subtle and consistent grain pattern. It is very strong and durable and comes in a variety of colors from cream to dark brown.
• Cherry: This type of hardwood is very smooth in texture and has a fine grain pattern. It comes in a variety of pinks and reds, deepening over time and with light exposure.
• Walnut: Slightly softer and lighter than the other hardwood types, walnut is known for its distinctive grain patterns and swirls and knots. It has a rich, dark brown color that stands out in any home
