Solid-Wood Flooring


Posted in Solid / Hardwood Flooring by Source on November 30th 2012
Solid-Wood Flooring Many homeowners choose traditional, unfinished hardwood-strip flooring in either red oak or maple because it's affordable, attractive, and they can choose the stain colour or leave it natural. However, unfinished wood requires sanding, staining if desired, and a clear topcoat finish. Solid-wood flooring is commonly available in narrow strips, wide planks, and parquet squares. Strip flooring is the most popular and traditional of all wood floors, and the strips you can buy measure between 1-1/2 and 3 inches wide. Planks range from about 3 to 7 inches wide and are often installed in larger rooms and wide-open spaces. Parquet flooring comes in preassembled tiles or it's custom-made from individual wood strips. Parquet is ideal for creating eye-catching geometric shapes, weaves, and herringbone patterns. All three flooring styles come unfinished or pre-finished and in thicknesses ranging from 5/16 to 3/4 inch. Many homeowners choose traditional, unfinished hardwood-strip flooring in either red oak or maple because it's affordable, attractive, and they can choose the stain colour or leave it natural. However, unfinished wood requires sanding, staining if desired, and a clear topcoat finish. Pre-finished wood flooring costs more than unfinished flooring, but doesn't require sanding or finishing. As soon as you install the last plank, you can nail up the baseboard trim and carry in the furniture. Pre-finished flooring also comes in thinner planks than unfinished flooring, which creates less trouble when transitioning from one room to the next.
