What to look for in hardwood flooring?

Wear Layer Thickness

The thickness of the wear layer in engineered hardwood dictates how many times you can sand and refinish your flooring. It generally ranges from 1.5mm to 8mm. Thicker wear layers allow you to renew your floor more times than their thinner counterparts and add more years to the lifespan of your hardwood flooring.

Wood Species

The color variations and grain patterns play the biggest role in selecting a wood species. It’s equally important to look at how durable a particular species is to ensure the quality of your new flooring. Popular and durable choices include hickory, oak, maple, walnut, and acacia.

Quality Finishes

Most finishes fall into two main categories, oil or polyurethane. Oil finishes enhance the beauty and natural color of the wood. Polyurethane finishes are stronger and add protection against wear and tear.
