We take the anxiety out of home renovations by sitting down with our valued customers to help them choose the right products for their project and explaining our philosophy and overall home remodeling process.
When flooring is part of your home remodeling, one of the aspects we discuss is hardwood floor types. Houston Remodeling partners with Mirage Hardwood Floors to provide a beautiful and durable end product. It is important to understand the different types of hardwood floors as they have varying installation methods and features.
Classic solid hardwood flooring is comprised of genuine hardwood boards that are nailed or stapled over a wood subfloor. The boards are ¾” thick and come in widths of 2 ¼’, 3 ¼’ or 4 ¼’. Solid wood floors can be re-sanded multiple times.
Engineered hardwood flooring are boards that feature real wood with a plywood base. These boards can be glued down over concrete or glued, stapled, floated or nailed down over a subfloor. Engineered hardwood floors can be sanded an average of three to five times.
Lock flooring is made of hardwood boards with a high-density fiber core. The boards are installed as a floating floor, so no nails, glue or staples are required. These floors can be moved if desired.
