Our experienced team has many years of experience helping clients find and install the best hardwood floors for their specific needs and space.
Hardwood flooring is a timeless option for both residential and commercial spaces, thanks to its beautiful grain patterns, sizes, and stains. However, choosing the right hardwood flooring for your space can be more complicated than you might think, given the humid and hot climate of SC. If you’re interested in hardwood flooring installation, keep reading these guidelines to find the best option for you.
We offer all kinds of hardwood flooring types, with a focus on hardwoods that are best for our area.
Since hardwood flooring costs can be expensive, it’s important to find the right product and look for your space. In our more humid climate, solid wood floors can warp, which is why it’s essential to choose an option that will stay looking beautiful for decades to come.
These types of hardwood planks include:
Our hardwood experts can help you make a choice that’s a perfect fit for your space, taste, and pocketbook. We offer premium hardwood flooring brands like Mullican, Horizon, Bruce, and Shaw. From matte dark wood floors to glossy light wood floors, there’s an option for every style preference. We also have popular styles like wide plank wood flooring and rustic, weathered planks.
Engineered vs. Solid - Which Type of Flooring Is Best For Me?
Today, the ever-expanding flooring industry presents many choices for homeowners and businesses. The two main types of hardwood floors you can choose from our solid and engineered planks.
Solid hardwood flooring is built from a single piece of premium wood, such as natural oak, maple, hickory, birch, mahogany, cherry, and nothing else. It is the more traditional type of wood flooring and it’s designed to last. Solid wood floors can be refinished over and over through the decades.
Engineered hardwood planks are built from many layers of composite wood that are laid in cross-grain directions to resist wood’s natural tendency to warp. Engineered planks are therefore a great choice for our humid climate as they are more moisture-resistant. They also look identical to solid wood floors from above, so there’s no need to sacrifice style for function. Engineered planks can be installed on any level of your home, including finished basements.
Solid hardwood can be installed in spaces like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood’s layered construction allows it to handle areas like kitchens and hallways. They can even be installed in basements with moisture control!
When it comes to hardwood flooring, we always recommend going with a professional installer; we offer hardwood installations and warranties on all of our flooring. Our installers also prepare your subfloor and make sure it is flat, clean, dry, and free of imperfections.
During a refinishing process, keep in mind the following:
