We've covered styles of wood flooring. Now lets talk about types of wood flooring!
Acrylic Impregnated Wood Floors - This type of wood flooring undergoes a process where acrylic is injected into the wood itself to create an extremely durable floor surface. These floors are typically used for commercial installations where high traffic takes place.
Engineered Wood Floors - Engineered wood floors consist of many layers of wood that have been pressed together and glued. The grains of each layer run in opposite directions to create added stability. Engineered wood is good for use in areas of the home where solid wood flooring is not appropriate. Most applications are in kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms.
Solid Wood Floors - Solid wood flooring can be defined as any piece of hardwood flooring that is one single piece of wood from top to bottom. Solid wood flooring lends itself well to custom flooring in a variety of species, stains and finish types. Combined with molding, accents and borders, a room finished with solid wood flooring is a work of art and this type of flooring is suitable for most rooms in your home.
