Hardwood Flooring Options

Wood Floors

Wood flooring comes in different sizes, shapes and styles in plank or parquet forms. Hardwood flooring is said to be more durable than softwood flooring. Common types of hardwood floors are solid hardwoods, engineered hardwoods, rotary-peel, sliced-peel and dry solid-sawn.

Hardwood floors are elegant, beautiful and enduring. They last a lifetime when properly cared for, without the need for replacement, the way carpet and vinyl do. Wood flooring comes in domestic flavors, such as oak, hickory, white pine and more, as well as exotic types like Eco-Friendly Bamboo Flooring and others from around the world. In fact, if you want to add dramatic beauty and elegance to your home, as well as attain a quality flooring solution that will stand the test of time, few things can rival the benefits of wood flooring. How do you choose the right option for your North Georgia wood flooring? Read On.

Laminate Flooring

Some homeowners wanting to update and redecorate will visit our home design store and learn that there are laminates and engineered woods that look just like hardwood floors and have the same stains. In addition, a decorator may wish to have something exotic like Caribbean Rosewood or Brazilian Cherry which cannot be imported due to local deforestation. But with the digitally produced laminate flooring, this is not a problem. Laminate flooring looks like hardwood flooring but it is less expensive, is very easy to care for and is extremely durable. The most difficult part is making a final decision.


Obviously, installation should be at the top of your list. This ensures that the company you choose has experience installing all types of wood flooring, from oak to fir, from exotic species to domestic species and even options such as top-nailed wood floors. Installation expertise is essential and we have the time and experience to make sure your flooring comes out top notch!


While it is true that hardwood floors can last a lifetime, they do require periodic care and maintenance, in order to retain their stunning good looks. Usually, this is no more than a simple polishing. The company that you choose should offer polishing and maintenance services to ensure that your new floor continues to look its best for decades to come.
