Mohawk Hand Scraped Engineered Wood Flooring - So that you are attempting to select the type of flooring to pick out? Perhaps we can help you with a tiny primer on some character differences of reclaimed wood flooring from the perspective of a manufacturer like ourselves who focuses on making wood flooring. Did you view an image that you like and now you've got the bug that you just need that special floor? The good thing is that it could probably be made for you, but before you go long ways down the path of choosing which floor you would like and requesting a display room full of samples, ask about some price ranges.
That is a familiar misconception that since reclaimed wood is allegedly salvaged it should be less expensive than virgin wood floorings. In the event you are buying a good kiln dried and precision milled product, typically that's not true. The only price economies would be if you found some scraps or did some salvage work yourself, you could save some costs. For example, you might find boards or a gym floor from a barn hay loft that you really want to nail back in your floor.
In this short article, we are going to be discussing a number of different categories of wood flooring. Solid wood flooring is one plank with no glued up laminations; it's actually a wood plank that profiled and has been sized to your certain measurement. Engineered is all wood but is made out of numerous layers which can be laminated for better stability and dimensional precision.
Hardwood flooring is often a generic term that may apply to almost any wood flooring. Hardwood trees (oak, maple, cherry, walnut, elm, chestnut) are typically trees that had leaves which fall off in the winter. Softwood trees (pine, fir) have needles that'll stay on all year and typically they create cones. Hardwoods are often denser and more durable than softwoods. Obviously, you will find exceptions to these generalities. In our product line, the hardwoods are more expensive in relation to the softwoods.
