Solid hardwood floors are milled from a single 3/4″ thick piece of hardwood. A solid hardwood floor can be sanded and refinished almost infinitely at least a couple generations, until you get to the tongue & groove. Solid hardwood floors expand and contract with changes in in temperature like the humidity in Spring & Summer and the dry weather during Winter. Expert flooring installers will allow for this movement by leaving an expansion gap between the hardwood floor and the wall. Traditionally base molding or quarter round is used to hide this gap left for expansion.
Engineered hardwood floors are hardwood too…just not solid hardwood throughout. The top layer is real hardwood but the sub-layers are plywood. Engineered hardwood floors also come in different qualities. You can buy a 1 mil engineered hardwood floor or you can buy a 6 mil engineered hardwood floor. For each mil you can sand and refinish once and you always have to have a mil remaining.

Wood floors basically come in solid 3/4″ thick or engineered wood floors which usually have 3 to 5 ply layers. Solid 3/4″ come prefinished or unfinished and can only be installed above grade and nailed in only. Because engineered floors are dimensionally stable, they can be installed anywhere in the home, including on concrete slabs, if moisture isn’t present. These wood floors can be glued, nailed or floated over many common types of sub floors. Wood floors range from narrow 21/4″ strips to 5″ planks in a choice of colors and the most popular finishes of gloss, semi-gloss and satin which have aluminum oxide scratch resist built into the finish.

Hardwood floors add beauty and character to any home.
Refinishing a wood floor is a necessary step to prolonging its life and restoring its natural beauty.
This is often a process many people would prefer to avoid.
Many homes have wall-to-wall carpet. We can remove your old carpet and pad, move all your furniture if necessary and re-finish your wood floors.
Typically we would sand the floor to the bare wood, apply a sealer coat and then apply two coats of a polyurethane finish in a gloss, semi-gloss or satin finish. We also could stain the wood floor in various different color stains. Upon inspection of the floors we can perform any needed repairs or plank replacements
