Hardwood Flooring Construction Basics
Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid hardwood flooring, as it sounds, is milled from a single thick piece of hardwood. Because of its thickness of ¾", solid hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished over several generations of use. One of the characteristics of solid wood flooring is that it will expand and contract with changes in relative humidity. For this reason, installers compensate for this movement by leaving an expansion gap between the floor and the wall. Base molding or quarter round traditionally is used to hide the gap. It is not recommended to install Solid Hardwood directly over a concrete slab.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Engineered floors are designed to be more durable than their naturally smooth counterparts. They typically have three to five layers of hardwood that each other across the grain and get bonded together under heat with pressure for an incredible look! These types don't change much when it comes out humidity, so you can install them at higher levels in your home without worries about warping or shifting
Before Deciding on Solid or Engineered Hardwood Flooring, Here Are Some Important Factors For Your Consideration
Location, Location, Location, Location...
The location of installation for your hardwood flooring basically falls into three categories:
- On Grade – at ground level.
- Above Grade – any second level or higher.
- Below Grade – any floor below ground level, including basements or sunken living rooms.
What Type of Sub-Floor Do You Have?
If you plan on installing over concrete, it's important to use an engineered product for structural integrity. Solid wood floors or Engineered Flooring may be used in place of plywood.
Will There Be Moisture in the Room?
If so, you'll want to select an engineered hardwood. The moisture resistance of an engineered hardwood makes it suitable for rooms where moisture is a possibility, such as bathrooms.
