There are many types of hardwood flooring available in the market today, such as: un-finished solid hardwood, un-finished engineered hardwood, pre-finished solid hardwood and pre-finished engineered hardwood and re-claimed hardwood.
When deciding the best option for your needs, consider the following questions:
- Is the installation below grade?
- Is the installation over radiant heat?
- Is the matching of the hardwood floor's height to other floor coverings critical?
- Is the installation over wood joists or over a concrete slab?
These variables will dictate which product is best for your situation.
