Learn About Hardwood
Nothing can add style and value to your home like hardwood flooring. Why? For one thing, hardwood offers a unique character that simply cannot be replicated. McDonald Carpet One Floor & Home in Boulder, CO is your local leader when it comes to hardwood, as we offer a great selection of high-quality styles.
Solid and Engineered Hardwood
There are two different hardwood options you can choose: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is made from genuine strips of wood, and there is no special construction. As a result, solid hardwood planks are thick enough to be refinished multiple times. Engineered hardwood, however, has a special layered construction, so engineered planks are more dimensionally stable than solid planks. Engineered hardwood can therefore be installed below, on, and above ground, and it can also handle foot traffic and moisture better than solid hardwood.
Where should hardwood flooring be installed? Hardwood, as you can imagine, isn’t the best option for high-traffic or high-moisture settings, although there are certain styles that are durable enough for busy areas. We recommend choosing hardwood for residential settings such as bedrooms and living rooms.
