Hardwood floors never seem to go out of fashion; they add warmth and charm to any home. Traditional hardwood flooring consists of solid pieces of wood cut into tongue and groove planks that are generally 3/4″ thick. The planks must be nailed to the subfloor and hence are not suitable for use over concrete. The emergence of pre-finished hardwood flooring has dramatically improved the quality and durability of the finish and the ease of installation and maintenance of these beautiful floors.
Engineered hardwood floors consist of several layers of wood that are glued together to form wood planks. The planks are usually about 1/2″ thick and can be installed anywhere in the home, including over concrete. Hand-scraped engineered hardwood floors are a popular trend today. Combining modern finishes with a rustic-looking texture, they add character to any home.
No other type of floor covering offers as much variety in color and pattern as vinyl composite flooring, also called luxury vinyl. Current manufacturing processes allow composite flooring tiles to economically replicate the look and texture of ceramic tile, natural stone, and even hardwood at an affordable price. Composite flooring has excellent resistance to staining, scratches and tearing, and installation is usually straightforward.
In addition to ceramic tile, this category also includes marble, travertine, and other natural stone, as well as porcelain. Today’s selection of colors, sizes, shapes and textures provides endless design possibilities. Currently, ceramic tile with the look and texture of wood is a growing trend.
