Solid Hardwood

Although solid hardwood floors are beautiful there is a down side to using solid hardwood here in Louisiana. Solid hardwood floors are a single, solid piece of wood that features tongue and groove sides for easy installation. Solid wood floors are quite prone to absorbing moisture. For this reason, they are not recommended for applications where moisture is prevalent.

Pre-finished Solid Hardwood

Pre-finished hardwood flooring is manufactured to be installed in your home as soon as it is delivered. When this floor option arrives at your home it has already been sanded and stained at the factory. The wood is stained with a polyurethane to help protect the floor from moisture. Pre-finished solid hardwood is a much better choice in areas prone to wetness. Another benefit is this choice comes in many colors to meet your lifestyle needs.

Engineered Hardwood

Another good choice for our Louisiana weather is engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood floors are usually fabricated by using as many as 5 or 6 thin layers of wood that are laminated to create a single flooring plank. This process makes the floor plank resistant to expansion or contraction that can occur when wet.
