Unique Engineered Hardwood Floors for Your Home

June 5, 2017 - 9:11am

The type of hardwood flooring you choose for your home is no simple decision. You need a design that will appease you both now and for years to come. You don't want the floor in your home to look like any other. You want it to stand out and showcase a unique presence and distinct quality that is specific to your superior design taste and style. But what will work best in your home?

 Engineered hardwood is a versatile alternative to Solid wood. Engineered wood floors can be more resistant to moisture and offer a bit more stability than solid hardwood. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered wood can go over concrete under the right conditions. Engineered hardwood flooring provides a variety of finishes, species, and widths – you’re sure to find the perfect match for your home. If sustainability is a priority of yours, engineered floors tend to be a more eco-friendly option.

Anderson Hardwood Flooring is another brand we carry. It started as a small, family-owned business in 1946 and today is one of the nation's leading hardwood manufacturers. Quality, style, innovation and design unite to offer hardwood flooring with unmatched beauty and durability. Anderson has a unique story since most of the company’s hand craftsmanship is performed within the Anderson Prison Work Program. Located in state correctional institutions in South Carolina and Tennessee, the voluntary work program centers on rehabilitating the lives of prisoners by teaching a trade and the value of hard work. Prisoners receive a prevailing wage, then divided among the state and victims, with the remainder going to the prisoners’ families. The highly successful program has proven to reduce the rate of recidivism. Woodworking Network has an excellent article on this program.

Anderson has an incredible range of styles, patterns, textures, stains and colors to choose from. Their engineered hardwood uses several different species of wood from oak, hickory, and maple to kupay.  Their finishes range from smooth and distressed surfaces to random to mixed width flooring - there is no shortage of elements to customize to your unique preferences. Let's explore three options:
