Floor Coverings International is your local solution for solid hardwood flooring in the greater South Denver area. Solid hardwood is differentiated from engineered hardwood because it is crafted from a single piece of timber. This makes solid wood highly durable and allows it to be sanded and refinished multiple times without losing quality.
Our team of flooring specialists will be there for you from start to finish from the product selection, design, and installation of your new solid hardwood flooring. We have a wide range of experience in designing and installing many different brands, species, and styles of hardwood floors.
Advantages & Disadvantages
One of the main advantages of solid hardwood flooring is that it is easy to repair, since it is all made from the same piece of wood. Also, solid hardwood will age naturally and beautifully as the years go by in your home.
On the other hand, solid wood flooring is very susceptible to changes in humidity, so it shouldn’t be installed in any basement-level rooms. If you are trying to install a hardwood floor in your basement, we would suggest engineered hardwood flooring. Most installers compensate for solid hardwood’s ability to expand and contract with humidity by leaving a small gap between the flooring and the wall.
Solid wood comes in a huge selection of species, from traditional oaks and maples to more exotic African and South American options. Because we have partnerships with leading flooring manufacturers, we have access to all the top solid wood brands and products.
