Which Engineered Hardwood Floor will show the least wear?

We receive this question frequently when people have children or pets.  All of the brands that we carry have their own unique finish to protect the wood.  They use Aluminum Oxide urethane, UV cured urethane, multi-coat Valspar or Nano finish.  This means they have hard protection layers but all hardwood floors can be scratched, dented and show wear.  Just like other surfaces in your home, your furniture and even your car. 

Why does my hardwood floor show cracks in the winter?

One of the biggest threats to your wood floors during the cold winter months is low humidity. What happens when the humidity drops too low? Your wood floors respond to changes in humidity by shrinking and showing gaps between planks.  In order for the wood flooring to perform as designed, the temperature and humidity conditions inside your home must be kept continuously within a certain range. This range varies slightly depending on the manufacturer and type of wood flooring.

Where can I install hardwood flooring?

Hardwood flooring is an extremely durable flooring product. It can be installed in virtually any room of your home that is above ground. There are several locations that are not recommended for hardwood flooring. Because hardwood flooring is a natural flooring product it is not recommended that it be installed in wet locations such as bathrooms, washrooms, saunas, enclosed porches or verandas, or anywhere that may require wet-mopping. Extended exposure to moisture of this type may cause your hardwood flooring to warp, swell or crack.

The convenience of higher buying power, central locations, and a wide variety of merchandise, makes big boxes the main choice for many consumers.

But not every small retailer goes under. Even in the era of the big box, some stores and installers are thriving. What makes the difference?
