Glue Down Engineered Wood Flooring Over Concrete - Wood flooring has been quite popular. Wood floors have a proper, beautiful and warm look that's ideal for all types of rooms. They are also eco-friendly, affordable and the best part is, there's lots of variety available. They're also relatively simple to maintain. Also, wood floors boost the value of a house and therefore are thus an investment. These days, wood flooring has been done in unique and custom designs like edges, medallions, hand- exotic wood, painting, mixed media, stain and distressing.
There are definite things to be considered while choosing wood flooring: the budget, the type of wood to be used, the style or design, the traffic in the location where the floor could be set up, the colour of the walls and the remaining furniture, the type of care which could be potentially done and so on. Other questions to be considered are: if the contractor has a license and the warranties and guarantees how long the installation will take.
There are different styles of wood floorings: parquet, which can be a string of flooring bits arranged in a geometric design; board hardwood flooring, which are wider and linear boards of wood; and strip, which can be linear flooring that's not as wide.
Wood floors are also classified on the basis of the type of installation: nail, glued and floated /stapled. Other distinctions will be the dimensions, the patterns and the colour (ash, maple, pear, walnut, plum, oak stain white, bamboo, beech, mahogany). Additionally, there are exotic species of wood floors like maple, cherry, white oak, birch and red oak. Various kinds of woods are being combined to generate custom wood floorings.
