Hardwood flooring can add value to any home, so we at FDW Carpet One are happy to offer one of the area’s best selections. Be sure to visit our Crystal Lake, IL showroom to check out our selection first-hand.
Solid and Engineered Hardwood
Hardwood is available in two constructions: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is considered the more traditional option, as it is made from genuine strips of wood and nothing else. There is no special construction at all. Solid hardwood planks are therefore thick enough to be refinished multiple times. Engineered hardwood, on the other hand, does feature a special construction. It is made from layers of wood that are cross-directionally pressed together by a top layer of real wood. With this special construction, engineered hardwood is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. But, engineered hardwood does look exactly like solid hardwood.
As part of our selection, we offer various solid and engineered hardwood styles. We have Carpet One exclusive brands such as Invincible Hardwood and Rustic River, both of which combine style with performance. Plus, we have a few different specialty brands, including Anderson, Mirage, Paramount, Somerset, Columbia, Choice, and Teragren.
Where can hardwood floors be installed? Generally, solid hardwood floors can be installed at ground level, but engineered hardwood can be installed below, on, or above ground. Nevertheless, we do not recommend hardwood, not even engineered hardwood, for areas with heavy foot traffic and moisture. Instead, hardwood is best-suited for residential settings such as bedrooms and living rooms.
When it’s time to actually install hardwood floors, we definitely have you covered. We work with teams of installers who can handle hardwood installation, and we’ll be sure to accommodate any schedule you have in mind.
