Engineered Hardwood Floor
A lot of homeowners are looking for a more elegant appearance for their home’s flooring. In comes engineered hardwood floors, a solid, sturdy flooring material that almost cannot be distinguished from solid plank floors. Both types are known for offering the look of natural wood in the home, and the look will always be a classic in any home.
Engineered hardwood floor was developed to be used on the first floor of a home, built over a concrete slab or in a basement. Today, however, the technology has exploded, and the products can be used anywhere. Engineered hardwood is more resistant to moisture and is often more stable than similar material options. No wood can tolerate standing water, but the moisture levels found over concrete tend not to be an issue for engineered wood flooring. The benefits come from how the wood is developed; the veneer of the wood tends to be quite thick. The thicker the veneer, the more expensive it is, however.
Hardwood Floor Installation Costs
The cost to install brand new hardwood flooring in your home can vary depending on the style of material being used, the size of your home, and the length of the job. Soft wood, such as pine, tends to cost around $3 to $6 per square foot for the material, then another $3 to $5 per square foot for the actual installation. Some of the most expensive hardwood flooring materials, however, can cost around $8 to $14 per square foot, plus the installation cost of around $4 to $8 per square foot. In total, most homeowners are looking at an investment of around $4,400, on average, to install hardwood flooring throughout their home. Again, there are factors playing into this cost. A bigger home will obviously cost more for the installation and materials. A smaller home, on the other hand, won’t cost as much.
Hardwood flooring is an investment, however. It is a beautiful classic look that works with almost any style of home. On top of that, the material will certainly up your resale value, should that time ever come.
Hardwood Floor Refinishing
Preserving your hardwood flooring in the home makes complete economic sense, as they can last for hundreds of years when treated correctly. This means refinishing on occasion to ensure the flooring appears like new. The cost for a refinishing process for hardwood flooring tends to range from $2 to $5 per square foot. Of course, prices do vary nationally, so call in for a consultation before making the leap.
Our flooring company will use plastic to seal off the area before buffing the hardwood flooring material with a sander. This process will remove the grit and dirt that has accumulated over time, allowing the floor to shine and feel smoother. Next, the floor is stained a certain hue. The total refinishing process can take up to two weeks due to the wait time between finishing coats. Some finishes can be completed in hours, while some require days to bond completely.

Are hardwood floors a good idea in highly trafficked areas?
Hardwood flooring works great in highly trafficked areas when cared for in the appropriate fashion. It’s important to remember that it’s actually the finish on the hardwood that provides the protection to the wood. Many modern finishes are hearty and will stand up well under the wear and tear of feet, furniture, and whatever else might come your way. That being said, there are some hardwood that will be more resistant to dents and scratches. So if you’re planning to use hardwood throughout your home, make sure you work closely with one of our flooring experts to ensure you make the best choice.
When ordering hardwood, how much extra should I order to allow for waste or damage during installation?
We get this question about hardwood estimates pretty often. It’s difficult to give a definite percentage because each and every home installation is unique. The overage depends on the number of rooms, and size of the spaces. Generally speaking, plan to add 5-10% on top of your initial flooring estimate and round up to the nearest box. What you don’t use up with the initial hardwood installation, keep for future repairs. This percentage should provide enough extra wood for waste and for cuts so that you have enough hardwood from the same lot in order to finish your home upgrade.
If I have an issue with my floor, what do I do?
Hardwood flooring, despite being quite sturdy and aesthetically pleasing, does have some issues that homeowners must watch for after having it installed. The visible signs of a problem with hardwood flooring include “wood movement,” which occurs naturally during various seasonal shifts. In some cases, however, this movement can be due to moisture-related problems. Wood is quite prone to moisture-related issues when too much water builds up in the concrete slab beneath the flooring. When this occurs, you should not hesitate to call the professionals here at D&R Flooring. We specialize in installing and repairing hardwood floors, so any problem you may be experiencing is an issue we have successfully handled and fixed for other clients in the past. Our flooring technicians can come into your home and inspect the problem, discerning between normal movement and moisture-related problems before forming a plan of action. Just give us a call as soon as possible for any problems with your floors.
What is the difference between your pre-finished and unfinished flooring?
Deciding on whether you want to use pre-finished or unfinished hardwood flooring in your home can be a difficult decision to make. Taking the time to perform thorough research will benefit you in the long run. Pre-finished hardwood flooring is usually the best when installation and convenience are your biggest concerns. If you are working with a tight budget, utilize pre-finished wood flooring over unfinished. On the other hand, unfinished wood flooring will offer the closest possible match in terms of hardwood appearance. There are a great range of possible options like plank width, unusual species of wood, and unique architectural styles to take advantage of when using unfinished wood flooring. Both types of hardwood flooring have their clear benefits. Ultimately, however, the choice is yours to make. Deciding which one suits your needs, budget, and style the best requires adequate research.
Can a hardwood floor be floated?
It is actually not impossible for a hardwood floor to be floated successfully, though it is usually not a good idea to do so. The reason for this is because solid hardwood flooring is usually more susceptible to movement when compared to engineered flooring. This is mostly due to moisture levels fluctuating and humidity levels in the region. Now that is not to say it cannot be done at all. In fact, a professional flooring technician can handle the job for you. On the surface, a floated hardwood floor will look exactly the same, but the inner core will have numerous layers to provide additional strength and make the boards more resistant. The boards respond well to humidity when installed correctly, especially in a room that would be considered moisture-prone, like the basement. A properly installed floated hardwood floor will not bow, buckle, or develop any gaps.
