Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for longevity. Because the wood is typically ¾-inch thick, it can be sanded, refinished, and repaired over and over throughout the course of its life. Solid hardwood flooring is made from a piece of solid wood that has been milled down. There are countless options for widths, grades, and species, and the stain colors variety.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Engineered hardwood flooring comes prefinished from the factory. It is typically chosen when there is a limited amount of space. It can be put down on concrete slabs and is better for areas where moisture may be a problem as it will have limited movement in terms of shrinking. Engineered hardwood floors are manufactured with multiple layers of real wood veneers.
Grading is the appearance of the boards themselves. One grade is not necessarily better than the other, but simply a matter of preference in terms of the appearance of the wood. RB Wood Floors can help you select from rustic hardwood floors, dark hardwood floors, grey hardwood floors and a range of other options applying a dark stain to the edges.
Buffing & Coating Hardwood Floors
Buffing and coating is a slightly simpler process. We perform a light sanding that is not designed to take out deep scratches in the wood. Once the light sanding is complete, we reapply a coat of polyurethane. Unlike refinishing, buffing and coating won’t allow you to completely change the look of the floor but instead gives the floor a new shine and luster in places that need it.
Distressing Hardwood Floors
distressing are creative techniques for adding character to a hardwood floor. You can give your floor a rustic, or antique look, adding character and charm to the wood itself. Hand scraping can be subtle, or more dramatic to show large grooves. The edges of planks can also be scraped to highlight and enlarge the spaces between boards. Other options for distressing include beating the floor with a hammer or applying a dark stain to the edges.
Refinishing Hardwood Floors
Refinishing your hardwood floors can give your floor a completely new custom look. We can accomplish just about any look you can imagine. When your floor has started to show signs of wear and tear, or if you’re simply ready for a new style.
