Let Floor Coverings International be your one-stop shop for solid hardwood flooring in the greater Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR areas. Solid hardwood flooring is crafted from a single piece of timber. Because it is one unified piece of wood, solid hardwood is very durable and resilient.
Our team of flooring specialists has extensive experience in selling, designing, and installing hardwood floors. We install solid hardwood flooring in both residential and commercial spaces. You can trust us to be professional, knowledgeable, and efficient from start to finish during your flooring project.
Advantages & Disadvantages
One main advantage of solid hardwood flooring is that it can be cleaned very easily. Solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished multiple times without losing its quality, so you don’t have to worry as much about scuffs and scrapes. Also, solid hardwood will age naturally and beautifully as the years go by.
However, solid hardwood flooring is susceptible to heat and moisture damage. It is liable to contract or expand depending on the temperature and humidity conditions of your home or office. Most installers compensate for this issue by leaving a small bit of space between the flooring and the wall during installation. If you are planning on installing hardwood in your basement or someplace that is very humid, you may want to consider engineered hardwood flooring instead.
Solid hardwood flooring comes in common species such as oak and maple, and also in more exotic forms such as African and South American species. Because we partner with leading manufacturers, we have access to the major brands and best products at affordable prices.
