Types of Wood Flooring?
- Unfinished wood flooring: in this kind of wood flooring the last finishing over the wooden floor is done at the site of the job. The wood is just sand up a prior hand. There are a number of options that can be applied to the woods for finishing purposes. Also, this option is best suited if you have some specific colour in your mind or if you want to match the floor colour with the colour of existing wooden floors in your home. This is a way better option as it gives you a choice of selection of the colour of the wood as per your choice.
- Factory finished wood flooring: In this kind of wood flooring, the finished layer over the already sanded wood floor is already put by the installer beforehand. In this, you do not get a chance to choose the shade of the wood finish beforehand and this is not suitable for the ones who have to select the shade of the wooden flooring according to the wooden flooring previously done at their homes etc. advantage of such a flooring is that it takes less time to be installed because the finishing of the floor is done before only.
- Solid wood flooring: It is made from 100% real wood. It is basically a single plank of wood. The thickness of the solid wood flooring is so much that it can be sanded and resurfaced or refinished as many times as it has to be. It’s basically investing in a long term project because the solid wood flooring stays on the floor for a very long period of time. Solid hardwood expands and contracts in reaction to changes in moisture and temperature, so solid wood floors are only recommended for rooms at ground level or above.
- Engineered wood flooring: alike solid wood flooring this is also made up of 100% real wood, but there are a few things that differentiate engineered wood flooring from solid wood flooring. The construction of the engineered wood flooring is in such a way that it is less likely to buckle, gap, or react to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. It is the most common and most used flooring used in houses because of its versatile design. It can be installed anywhere and with ease. It is most likely and suitable for basements and washrooms.
So all you need is to select the kind of floor according to the style you require and what suits you. It is just that solid wood flooring is cheaper as compared to engineered flooring, but the demerit to this is that it takes a longer time to be installed as compared to the engineered wood flooring.
