Is Climate Control Important When I Have Hardwood Floors?


Yes, it’s VERY Important!


Extreme humidity, temperature fluctuations, and inconsistent interior climates can cause your hardwood floors to expand or contract…which eventually causes cracking, warping, or other damages.


Because of this, proper heating and cooling throughout the seasons is critical to keeping your hardwood floor in top form. In fact, we require buildings to have heating and cooling sources present before we install your hardwood floor under warranty.


What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

There are, in fact, two different types of hardwood flooring available today: solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring.



What’s Currently Trending for Hardwood Floors

Modern hardwood flooring comes in various styles and can be made using diverse types of exotic and domestic wood species.


What’s currently hot in North Carolina?  


Well, you can’t go wrong with vintage-inspired styles like rich hickory, rustic and weathered planks, and plenty of knots and mineral streaks- the perfect addition to the area’s log cabin homes. Oaks of all shades and hues are also quite popular.


What Else Do I Need to Know as I Shop for Hardwood Flooring?


When you come to our stores, you’ll encounter a wide range of hardwood species, each with its own unique perks and textures.


Did you know that almost half of the hardwood floors sold in the US are made from red or white oak? Oak flooring boasts a moderate to heavy grain pattern and substantial color variations. Consider a lighter stain to best accentuate the grain.


For a more consistent wood pattern, choose maple flooring. Hickory, on the other hand, offers dramatic contrasts in its light and brown streaks, making it a striking focal point in any room.



Why Does the Grade of Your Hardwood Matter?

Your hardwood flooring’s grade impacts your floor’s overall appearance.


Hardwood strips and planks come in the following grades:
