Why choose hardwood?

Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style; that’s why we recommend them for homes with both children and pets. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood from Mohawk.

In Mohawk’s solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.

Engineered hardwood flooring from Mohawk is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favorite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-colored hardwoods like grays will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones, the latest hardwood trend, add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood surfaces will shine for decades. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

Can I really afford hardwood flooring?

When it comes right down to it, it’s true that hardwood flooring is more expensive than many of the other alternative flooring materials. The major difference is perceived value vs. real value.For instance, those beautiful, elegant grains and stain colors can be authentic, or they can be replicated for show only.

Of course, when discussing wood floors, you actually have two alternatives: Solid wood, and engineered wood. Solid wood is, of course, one solid piece all the way through, while engineered wood is a hardwood veneer placed on top of a composite material.If you’re looking to save money, but still want to get what you pay for, you might consider the latter.

At Flooring Galaxy, your satisfaction is what matters to us. We want to make sure you get the perfect floor covering to meet your needs.

Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Flooring with solid hardwood flooring, it’s likely that you will never again need to have flooring installed. When you consider the number of times you would replace other floor coverings in your home, the price you spend makes a lot more sense. In fact, it might even turn out to be cheaper.

Solid wood isn’t just a flooring purchase, it’s an investment in your future. When everyday wear and tear does finally start to show, in a couple of decades, you have the option to refinish it. Not only does this bring your finish back to a like-new state, but you also have the option to change the stain color, or even the finish itself.

Engineered wood is much the same, in that it can also be refinished. However, it can only be refinished a couple of times, which will be completely dependent upon the thickness of the actual wood veneer. It’s still a great choice for those who are looking for affordable wood flooring, however, and can be placed in areas where solid wood isn’t an option.

To save money, many homeowners consider installing hardwood flooring themselves, but we discourage that. In order to complete this job, you need a professional installer who not only has the experience necessary but the specialty tools as well.
