Create a focal point with hardwood flooring

It's a sure bet that a hardwood floor will become a focal point in the room regardless of the species, color, texture, and finish that is chosen. McLean Floorcoverings in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, offers a variety of hardwood flooring brands from top companies like Appalachian Flooring, Mohawk, Armstrong, and Tarkett. You have a choice of unfinished and prefinished solid wood along with engineered wood.

Unfinished wood

A wood floor that is finished on-site is well sealed, and therefore, appropriate for a kitchen as well as a family, living, and dining room. At one time, all hardwood strips and planks brought into a home were raw wood. It is still best to use this traditional method of installation, especially when undertaking a large renovation or constructing a new home. A floor has a flush look when it is finished in the home.

Prefinished wood

Like an unfinished board, each prefinished solid wood board is milled from one piece of wood. All finishing treatments are applied in the factory so no further work is needed in the home. Since factory finishes are superior to those that are available to on-site installers, prefinished hardwood is usually backed by a longer finish warranty than unfinished hardwood. A floor has a beveled look when it is finished in the factory.

Engineered wood

In contrast to both types of solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is composed of multiple base layers of plywood, positioned in different directions, and a top layer of hardwood. Because of its construction, this floor covering can be installed in a basement, bathroom, or other moisture-prone space. Like solid wood, engineered wood is durable and ideal for areas that receive heavy foot traffic.

While it takes one day to install prefinished and engineered wood floors, it takes one week to install and sand, stain, and seal an unfinished wood floor. Then one week is needed for the new floor to acclimate to its surroundings. Solid wood is nailed to a wood subfloor. Engineered wood is designed to connect to form a floor that floats above the subfloor. It can be installed over some existing flooring.
