Why choose hardwood?

Mohawk hardwood flooring in [[ cms:structured_address_city]] from Carpet Source
Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood from a variety of manufacturers including Mohawk.

In solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.

Engineered hardwood flooring is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favorite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-colored hardwoods will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood flooring will last for decades when properly cared for. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

There are many hardwood species, stains and finishes available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Carpet Source to view them in person.

Hardwood flooring choices

When it comes to hardwood flooring, you have two options: solid wood or engineered wood. While solid wood is the more classic approach, engineered wood has many benefits that make it a viable option instead. The fact is, one is likely better suited to your needs than the other is.

Solid wood has the longer lifespan, with the possibility of lasting for over a hundred years. There are many species and finishes from which to choose, and there’s no worry as to whether or not it will complement your existing décor. One of the best features of solid wood flooring, is that it can be refinished as signs of everyday wear and tear start to show. In fact, if it’s thick enough, it can be refinished several times over the course of its life.

Engineered wood floors have many of the same benefits that solid wood has, with the exception of refinishing. It can be refinished, but usually only a time or two, depending upon the thickness of the veneer on top. Since it is real hardwood flooring, you’ll get the same beautifully classic look. However, since it isn’t solid throughout, it can be installed even in basements, where solid wood can’t go. It simply doesn’t react in the same way to temperature and humidity changes.
