Types of Hardwood Flooring
Since the right hardwood flooring in Lewisville, TX has the potential to add hundreds or even thousands of dollars to the value of a property while providing a livability upgrade that cannot be beat, it is essential to find the perfect floor for your needs. The two basic types of hardwood flooring are solid hardwood and engineered hardwood.
Solid hardwood is boards or strips created from a single variety of natural wood, including cherry, oak, and maple. Solid natural wood represent the classic choice for easy, low-maintenance elegance, and last a lifetime with the right care. However, this flooring option is very susceptible to changes in humidity. We recommend installing these floors only in areas where the humidity can be kept between 40% and 60% throughout the year.
Avoiding the humidity issue, engineered hardwood flooring provides the flexible style your home deserves. Created from several varieties of hardwood, these planks or strips are fused together under pressure to create a strong whole. Because there are different types of hardwood in the plank, their expansion and contraction from humidity occurs at different rates, mitigating any damage or gaps that might otherwise occur.

From the simple maintenance to the durability, hardwood flooring provides long-lasting performance with a timeless style.

Methods of Installation
In the nail down or staple method we use nails and staples to affix solid or engineered wood strips to the subflooring, which is usually either plywood or plank wood. To ensure proper placement and tautness, a few strips are placed down and arranged prior to fastening. The floor is then filled out with strips of wood of various lengths, ensuring a pleasingly random floor pattern for maximum style. This style of flooring provides the illusion of a larger space, expanding smaller rooms in the mind’s eye.
The second method is glue-down installation. Our installers use glue to affix engineered wood strips or parquet directly to the subfloor, usually concrete. This means that we must pay extra attention to moisture, to reduce the chance of damage from expansion and contraction as well as prevent wood rot from beneath. One of the benefits of glue-down installations is that they are able to be walked on normally the next day, enhancing livability and allowed furniture to be returned to the room promptly.
Wood floors, especially glue-down installations, need to be installed with consideration to allergy sufferers, as well as those sensitive to smell. We always use urethane-based glue to avoid any foul smells over time, and the tight-fitting wood prevents dust and bacteria from gathering and aggravating allergic reactions.
