This type of floor is usually .75 inches thick and you can finish it with a range of stain options. This will allow you to match the flooring to your home's style. Solid hardwood can last for a very long time in your home as long as it is maintained correctly.

Hardwood floor installation

There are many different types of hardwood boards we can install. These styles are planks, strips, and parquet. Planks are the most popular types and are available in widths ranging from 3 inches to 5 or even 7 inches. Some newer styles of wide planks will come in a combination of widths to vary the look of the flooring. Strip flooring options are generally available in widths below 3 inches. The style of these strips look as up to date today as they did 50 years ago and will definitely stand the test of time. Parquet flooring uses small boards arranged in geometric patterns. These patterns can range from simple designs to incredibly elaborate and detailed patterns.
