Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring

A classic choice for its warmth, beauty and timeless appeal, hardwood flooring comes in two forms: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. This natural product comes in varying widths and lengths, wood species, finishes, and stains. Hardwood floor installation involves nailing or gluing down planks.

hardwood TIPS & INFO

Solid vs. Engineered

As a single piece of wood milled into planks, solid hardwood is more expensive than engineered, which is a plank made from plywood layers and topped with a thin veneer of wood.

hardwood Pros

Everybody loves hardwood flooring—it has great resale value. Its rich natural beauty can last for decades if well kept (solid lasts longer); and unfinished solid wood can be custom-stained.

hardwood Cons

High maintenance. Scratches and dents easily with kids, toys, pets, and some shoes. Excess moisture can warp hardwood flooring; solid is more prone to water damage than engineered.


Solid hardwood flooring can be refinished to change colour, repair damage, or keep looking fresh; high-end engineered hardwood may be able to be refinished a bit, but isn’t recommended.
