Installation Of Solid Wood Flooring In The Home

Posted in Solid / Hardwood Flooring by Source on April 4th 2013
People often choose solid wood flooring for use throughout their homes. There are different types of wood flooring, all manufactured using different layers and methods.

Solid wood flooring

Solid wood flooring is made from a single piece of timber, giving the most natural look of all wood floors. Usually 18-20mm thick, solid wood floors are built to last for lifetime. There a variety of different widths, lengths and finishes available, from all of which free samples can be requested before you make up your mind. Prefinished solid wood floors are most common, and can be chosen in two finishes, oiled or lacquered. If you are considering an unfinished floor, you can have it finished in any colour of your own choice. The majority of wood floors are oak although ash, walnut, maple and exotic species are also available. All solid wood floors are put together with a tongue and grove fitting, and stick down with an elastic adhesive or secret nail allowing the solid wood to expand and contract in a natural way.

Other types of wood flooring

Other wood flooring options are also available including engineered, solid engineered and parquet wood flooring. Engineered flooring is made of two or more layers using a top layer of real hardwood with a layered base made from several materials.  Engineered wood floors have all the charm of a solid wood with excellent stability and versatility. Made with a top layer of hardwood, engineered wood flooring eliminates expansion and contraction problems associated with solid wood flooring. Engineered wood floors also available in oiled and lacquered finishes, or unfinished styles which you can stain, oil or lacquer yourself.
