Finding the perfect hardwood flooring for your home

 
The easiest way to add sophistication to room decor is to install a hardwood floor. Wide planks are ideal if you favor a rustic style while parquet squares complement a retro style room. Dark wood balances light-colored furnishings, and exotic wood tends to boast dramatic colors. With the array of available hardwood brands, design possibilities are endless. You can find the flooring that is perfect for your home at Haight Carpet & Interiors. We invite you to visit our showroom in Woodinville, Washington, or schedule an appointment for our shop at home service.
 

Unfinished hardwood

 
Traditional unfinished solid hardwood is the best option for large renovations and new construction. It takes one week to complete the installation process and one week for acclimation. You may also prefer to have boards sanded, stained, and sealed in your home if you:

  • Prefer a floor that has a flush look.
  • Want a well-sealed wood floor in the kitchen.
  • Desire an uncommon wood species or stain that is unavailable in prefinished brands.
 

Prefinished hardwood

 
Like unfinished solid hardwood, prefinished brands are nailed to a wood subfloor. Since boards are finished in the factory, installation takes one day, and the floor can be used immediately after it is installed. Prefinished wood floors have a beveled look. Sealers applied in the factory tend to be higher in quality than those available to on-site installers so finish warranties for prefinished brands are usually longer. Solid hardwood floors will last as long as you own your home. If they become worn, they can be refinished so they look new again.

Engineered wood

 
Wood flooring comes in two basic types: solid wood and engineered wood. Instead of being milled from one piece of wood, engineered flooring is composed of layers of high-quality plywood bonded to a top layer of hardwood. This floor covering is usually installed as a floating floor. Planks connect in tongue and groove fashion so the floor rests above the subfloor rather than being attached to it. The flooring can be installed over wood, concrete, existing flooring, and radiant heat. Engineered wood has a lifespan of 30 years or more.
