Classic Beauty and Durability for Orlando, Florida Homes
At Floor Coverings International Winter Garden, we are your local Winter Garden and Orlando solid hardwood flooring providers. Hardwood floors are extremely desirable in this area because of their beauty and durability. You can choose between solid, engineered, and laminate hardwood.
The difference between solid and engineered hardwood floors is that solid wood floors are crafted from a single piece of timber. Engineered hardwoods are constructed using multiple layers of different woods. Because it is one unified piece of wood, solid hardwood is classically beautiful and durable.
Advantages & Disadvantages
Our Orlando customers find that solid hardwood flooring can be cleaned very easily. Solid hardwood can also be sanded and refinished multiple times which means that it can be used in your home for years to come even if scuffs and dents appear.
Hardwood flooring comes in so many different colors, styles, textures, and more to pick from. Solid hardwood flooring comes in common species such as oak and maple, and also in more exotic forms such as Brazilian cherry. You can even customize your stain and finish so you can be sure to find a solid wood option that meets your needs.
Orlando Hardwood Flooring Experts
However, solid hardwood is susceptible to heat and moisture damage, which may be a problem with the climate in the Winter Garden and Orlando areas. Solid wood floors can contract or expand depending on the temperature and humidity conditions of your home or office. Most installers compensate for this issue by leaving a small bit of space between the flooring and the wall during installation. If you are planning on installing hardwood in a basement or a very humid area in your home, you may want to consider engineered hardwood flooring instead. Be sure to choose a trusted installer or company such as Floor Coverings International of Winter Garden to install your solid wood floors to minimize the chance of damage from buckling or warping due to improper installation.
