The Flooring Center-Orlando offers an extensive variety of hardwood flooring materials in diverse designs, colors, domestic and exotic wood species. The industry’s most respected flooring product manufacturers including Mohawk, Garrison, Lauzon, and DuChateau have provided us with a broad selection of hardwood flooring materials that will make your home aesthetic and functionally unique. Our wide choice of oak, maple, hickory, cherry, walnut, pine and rosewood will add an important resilience to your hardwood flooring. Although there are many choices of available hardwood, our design team will gladly step-up and help you to find the hardwood flooring that matches the style and type that you prefer.
There are two types of hardwood floor currently available on the flooring market. These are solid hardwood made from solid boards or planks and engineered hardwood created with built thin layers or veneers of wood. The latter generally consists of three to nine layers, called ‘plies’ that have been glued together. This structure gives engineered wood superior strength and stability that is greater than solid hardwood. This reduces concerns about shrinking and expanding from changes in temperature and humidity. You can have your engineered hardwood flooring installed with a staple-down or nail-down method, but the majority of customers have it glued down.
