Hardwood is always a good flooring choice for living rooms and other moisture-free spaces. It's been chosen by the most discerning homeowners for generations. Many historically significant nineteenth-century homes boast their original wood floors. A large number of domestic and exotic wood species are available in various colors, grains, and textures. For long-lasting floors, choose the hardest woods on the market, like maple, white oak, and hickory. You can find a wide selection of wood flooring at Massud & Son Floor Covering. We are a family-owned and operated BBB Accredited business with an A+ Rating. We offer carpet, tile, waterproof flooring, and much more in our Central Falls, Rhode Island, showroom.
Unfinished wood flooring
Unfinished hardwood strips and planks are finished on-site. After boards are nailed to a wood subfloor, the floor is sanded and stained, and then a sealer is applied. Installation and acclimation take about two weeks. Generally, the floor has very tight and well-sealed seams between boards. Therefore, this type of floor can be installed in a kitchen. The floor will have a flush look, in contrast to the beveled look of hardwood flooring that is finished in the factory. Solid wood flooring can be refinished when it begins to look worn or a new stain is desired.
Prefinished wood flooring
Since prefinished solid wood and engineered wood flooring arrive at the home already stained and sealed, installation is completed in one day. Prefinished strips and planks are milled from one board while engineered flooring is composed of a hardwood layer that is bonded to a base layer. Unlike solid wood, engineered wood flooring can be placed in the bathroom or basement. Often, this floor covering is not attached to the subfloor during installation. Instead, it clicks and locks together to create a floor that floats above the subfloor.
