If you want to furnish your home with hardwood flooring, here are some important questions to consider:
In what level of the house is the wood to be laid down?
Engineered wood is generally recommended for basements and any other rooms below ground level. This product is 100% natural wood that has been sliced thinly into multiple cross sections. The alignment of these thin pieces at 90 degree angles to each other ensures that once our hardwood flooring has been laid, changes in moisture commonly associated with subterranean spaces will not be able to cause any expansion or contraction.What type of wear do you want to see on your flooring?
Some hardwoods are very soft and will quite easily dent and scratch with the movement of furniture or exposure to pet's claws and stiletto heels. If you are looking for a durable wood that is more resistant to general wear-and-tear you will need to go with a harder wood. The experienced professionals at Action Carpet and Floor Décor will assist you in making this decision.Which type of hardwood construction best suits your tastes?
There are generally four types of hardwood flooring to choose from and you will find a large sampling of each on Action Carpet and Floor Décor‘s showroom floor:
- ¾ inch solid hardwood flooring (unfinished or pre-finished),
- Engineered wood (unfinished or pre-finished),
- Longstrip wood planks (pre-finished), or
- Parquet tiles.
With today's sophisticated and advanced manufacturing protocols, pre-finished hardwood floors are much easier to maintain. In addition to this, the application of special finishes by manufacturers means that this kind of flooring is more durable than ever. Whether your choice is a hand-scraped wood, or a solid, longstrip bamboo, we here at Action Carpet and Floor Décor will provide you with the best price, brand selection and expert installation.What is the color theme of your space?
People frequently forget this, but wood has a color too and has to be matched to that of the rest of the space in which you are installing your San Diego hardwood flooring. Stop in at Action Carpet and Floor Décor's showroom and our experienced staff will guide you to the right wood floor for your home and budget.
