Take advantage of wood's natural style and strength
Wood Floor Options
Wood flooring is certainly one of the most time-tested flooring options available for your home. Why? For one thing, nothing can truly replicate the natural beauty and luxury of as quality wood floor. We at McCall’s Carpet One offer a great selection of wood floors such as hardwood, bamboo, and cork in our Franklin, TN store. Which option is best for your home? Let us help you make the perfect choice!
Hardwood is the most popular wood flooring option. There are two main types of hardwood available: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is made from a genuine strip of wood, so it has a thick and strong construction. Engineered hardwood is also only made from wood, but it features a layered construction. Because of its layered construction, engineered hardwood is more dimensionally stable and therefore better-suited for below-ground areas.
For extra stain and scratch resistance, hardwood floors are usually finished. Finish can protect against spills and scratches, so it keeps the surface looking new. Also, the right finish can add shine and color to the surface. Over time, finish can wear away, but fortunately hardwood can be refinished. Hardwood refinishing will certainly keep your hardwood floor looking as good as new!
For more unique looks, be sure to check out bamboo flooring. Bamboo offers a distinctive pattern of darker bands and nodules, so it truly looks different than hardwood. This unique appearance is great for modern designs. To add, bamboo is harder and more dimensionally stable than hardwood, so it’s a better option for areas with high temperatures and high humidity levels. It’s also easier to clean and maintain than most hardwood flooring options.
Cork flooring is another wood flooring option that offers unique looks and increased performance. Given its construction, cork flooring is relatively soft and flexible, so it’s much more resilient than hardwood and bamboo. In fact, cork is so resilient that most impacts will fully or partially recover. Furthermore, cork flooring is warm to the touch, and it also acts as a thermal insulator to reduce heat loss in rooms.
