Wood Floor Installation in Bergen County NJ

Which Wood Flooring Should You Install?

Between carpeting, ceramic tiles, vinyl, laminate, and hardwood, there are an overwhelming number of flooring materials for a homeowner to choose from. However, the National Wood Flooring Association claims Americans alone purchased over 900 million square feet of wood flooring each year between the years of 2001 and 2011.

Wood flooring itself is available in a wide range of sizes and styles. However, there are just two basic categories of wood flooring including solid and engineered wood. We are highly experienced in wood floor installation in Bergen County NJ for both solid and engineered wood. Solid wood, just as most would assume, features individual planks of solid wood. Engineered wood, on the other hand, is a laminated plank engineered from several pieces of wood. Both solid and engineered wood flooring are available in a number of different wood species and colors.

Choosing whether to install solid or engineered wood is a decision made based on price, ease of installation, and wood species.

Solid Wood

Solid hardwood is available in both finished and unfinished. While finished hardwood flooring is costlier, it does not require as much maintenance. After solid wood floor installation in Bergen County NJ, you can add the baseboard and start carrying in your furniture. Unfinished flooring requires sanding and the application of a clear finish after installation.

Engineered Wood

Engineered wood entered the flooring industry in the mid-1980s. It consists of three layers of wood and is more dimensionally sound than solid wood. This means it is less likely to shrink, warp, crack, cup, or split. Engineered wood is available in more than two dozen species including those in both hard and softwood categories. Ease of engineered wood floor installation in Bergen County NJ makes engineered wood a popular choice. The individual floor planks snap together and do not require glue or nails. As long as the current flooring is hard, flat, and in good condition engineered wood can be installed on top of it.

New wood floors are just a phone call away! We work in all areas of Bergen County, including:

Keep in mind, while wood is considered a renewable resource, certain species take a while to grow and have been harvested to the point of not being a sustainable choice.
