Hardwood flooring can be solid or engineered

Hardwood flooring looks great in any home, whether you favor traditional or contemporary decor. You can choose unfinished or prefinished solid wood or multi-ply engineered wood. Both domestic and exotic woods are available. The hardest woods, as measured on the Janka Hardness Scale, are the most durable. These include oak, ash, and maple. You can find these species and more at SJ FloorSolutions LLC, a hardwood flooring retailer in Carrollton, Texas. In addition to a large selection of flooring, we offer many related products and services.

One-day installation

Both prefinished solid hardwood and engineered hardwood are stained and sealed in the factory. No further finishing treatments are needed, and therefore, installation is completed in one day. Usually, boards are connected in tongue and groove fashion to float over the subfloor. Engineered hardwood flooring is:

  • Composed of a high-density fiberboard or plywood core and a top layer of hardwood.

  • Topped with a hardwood that varies from 0.5mm to 4.5mm or more in thickness.

  • Resistant to moisture and humidity, and therefore, appropriate for basements.

  • Ideal for installation over radiant heating systems or on concrete floors.

On-site finishing

Solid prefinished hardwood strips and planks are milled from one piece of wood. Typically, wood strips are¾-inch thick by 2-¼-inch wide, while planks range from 3 to 6 or more inches wide. High-quality prefinished wood flooring:

  • Is treated with powerful sealants in the factory; 25-year finish warranties are typical.
  • Has seams that are not sealed, and therefore, the floor has a beveled look.
  • Adds value to a home, like more traditional unfinished solid hardwood
Unfinished solid hardwood is nailed to the subfloor and then sanded, stained, and sealed in the home. This process takes one week and acclimation takes a second week. Seams are sealed, and that produces a flush look. This type of installation is advisable for new construction and large home renovation projects. When remodeling, it may be the only way to get the look, wood species, or stain that you desire. Floors can last 100 years or more, and they can be refinished when they begin to look worn.
