Wood flooring is a time-honored tradition

Hardwood flooring raises visual appeal in a room. You can count on it to elevate room decor, whether you’re a fan of Old World or modern industrial design. Solid wood flooring is a time-honored tradition for the country’s grandest homes. If you want to bring an opulent look to your home, The Floor Store can help. We are a family-owned and operated hardwood flooring retailer that carries a wide variety of flooring options in our showroom in Wixom, Michigan. We also have a selection of engineered hardwood, a durable and practical flooring choice.

Wood floors

Solid wood flooring is made of one piece of wood while engineered wood flooring is made of multiple layers of wood. The core is plywood, medium-density fiberboard, (MDF) or lumber. The top layer is always high-quality hardwood. Popular wood floor styles include:

  • Strip - less than 3 inches wide; makes a room look larger
  • Plank - 3 inches wide or greater; casual or rustic look
  • Parquet - different sizes; geometric, non-linear look

Wood floors are durable and able to retain a like-new look for decades. Solid wood can be sanded and refinished many times, and most engineered wood can be redone once or twice. Wood floors resist dirt and dust as well as allergens. Generally, a solid wood floor is glued or nailed to the subfloor, and an engineered wood floor is crafted to fit together in a manner that allows it to float over the subfloor. Unlike solid wood, engineered flooring resists water so it can be installed in basements and kitchens.

Solid wood

You can opt to have your new floor sanded, stained, and sealed in your home. Or you can choose to have the factory finish these three steps. If installers are working with unfinished wood, it takes them about two weeks to finish the floor. Prefinished wood takes one day to install, and you can walk on the floor as soon as it is finished. Choose unfinished wood if you want a flush, not beveled, look or if you prefer a less common stain.
