Hardwood Performance Factors
Where will your new flooring go? Solid hardwood flooring should only be installed on grade and above, while engineered hardwood works on any level.
Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture, and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.
Going for a natural look, or want something more uniform? A higher hardwood class will have fewer natural variations, knots, and mineral marks.
Care & Maintenance
Keep your wood floors in top condition.
Care & Maintenance Tips
Vacuum or sweep with a soft-bristle broom to prevent buildup that can scratch wood surfaces.
Use protective window coverings and move rugs and furniture periodically to help flooring age evenly.
Attach felt pads under furniture legs and remove rough or spike-heeled shoes before walking across the floor.
