Hardwood flooring: traditional or trendy

 
At one time, unfinished solid hardwood planks were brought into a home so the new floor could be sanded, stained, and sealed on-site. Today, the majority of homeowners choose prefinished planks or engineered wood flooring. You can install both types of flooring in one day. Knoxville Carpet carries a wide variety of solid and manufactured planks. Hardwood flooring brings a classic beauty to your home that no other floor covering offers. After more than 40 years in business, residents of Knoxville, TN, and surrounding areas know they can trust us to provide high-quality flooring and services.
 

Prefinished planks

 
Prefinished planks are sanded, stained, and sealed in the factory, and thus, installers only need to nail them to a wood subfloor. Sealants tend to be tougher than those that are accessible to on-site installers. If you choose these wood floors, your new floor will have a beveled look.

Unfinished planks

In contrast, your new floor will have a flush look if it is constructed with unfinished solid wood planks that are finished in your home. Planks fit snugly together, so this installation method is ideal for kitchens. This traditional hardwood flooring is still considered the best option, significantly since it enhances the flooring system in your home.

Engineered wood

 
Solid hardwood flooring and engineered wood flooring look the same in a room, even though there are differences between the two kinds of planks. That's because manufactured wood flooring has a surface layer of hardwood. A plywood base that tolerates moisture lies beneath this layer.
 

Engineered wood installation

 
Engineered wood can be used for more applications than solid wood because of its moisture tolerance. In addition, these planks are designed for floating floor construction. That means the planks do not need to be nailed to a wood subfloor. Instead, underlayment, including a moisture barrier, is placed beneath the flooring.
