Choosing Hardwood Flooring for a New Home

If you are a first-time home buyer, you may very well want to put a "stamp" on your new home, something that really makes it yours.

This can certainly be accomplished by adding hardwood flooring to your new home. Hardwood flooring does much more than just add value to your home. It also delivers warmth and a feeling of comfort to a house.

As a first-time home buyer, you may not have a lot of experience in choosing flooring for a home. The first thing to know is that there are many types of available flooring. Hardwood flooring comes in several sizes and styles.

The two basic types of wood flooring are solid wood and engineered wood.

Solid wood flooring is just that. Solid. Every floorboard used in solid wood flooring is milled from solid wood.

Engineered wood flooring is a plank that is made from pieces of wood. The engineered wood flooring is made up of multiple layers of plywood and composite material. Engineered wood flooring is also available in varying degrees of thickness.

Another difference between solid and engineered wood flooring is the composition. Solid wood flooring can contract and expand based on humidity. It needs to be installed properly to lessen the chances of either of these things happening. Solid wood flooring tends to cost more because of the quality and look of the floor.
