Supportable and ECO-FRIENDLY

Hardwood flooring is made from trees which are constantly being replenished by nature. While other types of floors like carpet or laminate are constructed with synthetic materials, hardwood is sustainable and environmentally smart. Here in the United States, our American hardwood industry is enthused that even with a rise in production and international demand, overall standing timber volumes have doubled in the last 50 years. As the demand for hardwood increases, we as an industry are adapting to the challenge of reforesting and renewing this regular asset.

The evolution of the engineered wood flooring

Engineered wood flooring is definitely the best alternative for the hardwood flooring and you cannot find a better alternative for this than the engineered wood flooring. They are unique in their technology and the way they are being installed. Hardwood flooring is also a good form of flooring though there is lots of wastage of the wood and that is why these days engineered wood flooring is preferred. It is economical, better in designs as well shows best refinishing and better resistance towards the moisture as well as stains. Just a year back, around 63% of the solid wood flooring market dealt with Solid wood flooring. Things are changing and with the evolution of the engineered wood flooring, the market share might soon change in favor of the engineered wood flooring.

How to strart renoveting for you wood floor

Really it’s up to you. We’d recommend doing any of the dirty work like stripping wallpaper and skimming before sanding the floor, other than that it really doesn’t matter. When sanding around the edges of the floor, you will inevitably knock your skirting boards, though, so finishing them off after sanding the floor is probably a good idea.

Traditionally, hardwood flooring came in thick planks of solid timber. Today, solid hardwood is still widely available, but many companies may also offer engineered flooring—planks made with a thinner top layer of hardwood, bonded to other layers and designed to prevent the floor from shifting during expansion or contraction cycles.
