Flooring: Carpet Information

The Basics

  • All pre-finished hardwood comes ready for installation.

  • Creates a warm environment and usable throughout the house.

  • Easy to maintain.

  • Choices in edges – square, beveled or eased.

    • Beveled edges act like gutters for your hardwood floor capturing dust and grit that can cause scratches and make cleanup easier.


    • Choices in species and color.

      • Some common species are: red oak, white oak, maple, cherry, white ash, and hickory/pecan

        • Within each species there are selections of color finishes.


    Red Oak

    White Oak

    Maple

    Cherry

    White Ash

    Hickory/pecan
    • Choices in sizes – 2 ¼” strip, 3” or 5” planks.
    • Choice of gloss level. Typically high gloss, medium gloss and a matte or satin finish
    • Lower gloss levels are better suited for active rooms when saving the elegant look of the high gloss for a formal living room or dining room.
      • Matte or lower gloss floors help minimize the appearance of dirt and scratches but the finish reflects less.



Hi-Gloss


Low-Gloss

  • Engineered vs. Solid Hardwood
    • Engineered – the boards consist of 2 or more layers or “plies” that provide dimensional stability.
    • Solid – solid pieces that come in ¼”, ½” or ¾” in thickness.
  • The graining on the boards is determined by the way it has been cut.
  • There are two processes. “Sliced Cut” shows a more uniform and sometimes more linear graining pattern whereas “Rotary Cut” displays a larger and bolder graining pattern.
