Hardwood Flooring

  Solid Hardwood Solid wood flooring is 100% hardwood milled from lumber. As a natural material, hardwood reacts to changes in its setting, like moisture and extreme temperatures, which cause solid wood to shrink or expand. All solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished if needed over the years. Solid hardwood is not recommended for installation below ground level or in bathrooms.     Engineered Hardwood Engineered wood flooring is built up of layers of wood. It consists of three to ten layers, called plies, that are glued together. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood superior stability, greater than solid wood, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change. Engineered wood can be installed below ground level making it a great choice for finished basements.   Prefinished vs. Site-Finished Hardwood Our hardwood flooring comes pre-finished for a no fuss, no muss installation. There’s no dust from sanding, no fumes from chemicals, no waiting for the finish to dry. These floors are warranted to last longer than site-finished floors–typically 5 to 35 years, for residential use versus 3 to 5 years. This is because factory applied urethane finishes are much tougher and longer lasting than site-applied finishes. If you like the look of site-finished flooring, but want the durability of prefinished flooring, choose a product with a square end and edge. Color The great variety in wood flooring choices comes from the species’ natural colors, stains and finishes, and even the wood’s tendency to lighten or darken subtly with age and sun exposure. Home lighting is a factor in how your finished floor will look, too. Ask your retailer for samples to view in your home, or order them yourself on our website.   Species Variances by species are as fascinating as they are beautiful, from the pronounced grain of oak and the more understated, clean look of maple. Exotics like lapacho, tigerwood and Brazilian cherry are striking and distinctive. They vary in hardness, which translates into durability. Consider oak, maple, ash or Brazilian cherry for the greatest durability.   Edge Detail The way the...

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring Laminate flooring has four layers: a wear layer, a design layer, an inner core layer and a backing layer. The wear layer protects the floor from stains and fading. Beneath that, the design layer is literally a photographic image of wood, stone or other natural visual. For structural strength, the inner core layer’s plastic resin keeps the laminate stable and flat. The backing creates a moisture barrier that protects the floor from warping. It’s this layered construction that makes laminate floors so remarkably durable.   Look It’s all there: the subtle color variations, the distinctive grain, the authentic texture. Armstrong laminate captures the beauty and design of the finest natural hardwood, ceramic, and stone at a fraction of the price.       Color Available in an exciting palette of colors, you are guaranteed to find a laminate floor in the color you’re looking for.         Width Laminate flooring comes in a wide variety of sizes, depending on the look you choose. Most wood look planks are 4 inches or wider while ceramic tile looks range between 12 and 15 inches. Keep in mind that the width of individual boards can have a dramatic influence on the look of a floor. Wide widths can complement a large room, but can sometimes overwhelm a small area. Select the look that harmonizes with the style and architecture of your home.   Gloss Do you prefer a fine finish (high gloss) or matte (low-gloss) look? Choose whatever look fits your décor or personal taste best. Either way, the gloss level of laminate flooring has very little effect on durability or performance. Low-gloss floors may hide the appearance of minor surface scratches slightly better than higher gloss floors.       Room There are absolutely no restrictions to where laminate can be installed. From basements and bathrooms to dens and kitchens, laminate flooring works superbly in any area of your home. Whatever room(s) you choose, you can feel confident about laminate floors performance. It will retain its beauty even in high-traffic areas and through normal changes in temperature,...
