Wood flooring – be it engineered or solid, glued-down, nailed or floating – is our bread and butter. We’ve worked with nearly every manufacturer and vendor and have installed virtually every species that was ever conceived for use as a floor, and we understand the systems that go behind building a durable, beautiful, creak-free wooden floor.
Wood Flooring Installation and Selection
When it comes to flooring, there is nothing more versatile, manageable, or clean than wood. With a plethora of species that differ in texture, consistency and durability – in addition to the types of stains available that aid in the finishing touch and overall appearance – wood is one of the most popular flooring options available at Alite Flooring, and a flooring type that we are proud to specialize in.
Species of Wood
The species available for your hardwood floor can be broken down into two main types: Domestic and exotic. Domestic wood flooring species have commonly been used in homes, businesses and other establishments throughout the country, proving to be a long-lasting and trustworthy option. Domestic wood species include, but are not limited to, walnut, red oak, maple and birch. Unlike the more traditional domestic, exotic wood species usually have a wider range of color, in addition to unique grain patterns. Tigerwood, Brazilian teak and bamboo are all exotic species to consider.
Types of Finishes
As a full-service flooring finishes contractor, we offer numerous finishes for each hardwood floor that we install. Before choosing, our team of professionals can help you consider and carefully select the appropriate finish – one that will accommodate your lifestyle, wood flooring species and overall aesthetic needs. Varnish, stain, dye, wax, oil and wood preservers are all unique possibilities we can help you explore, each bringing a multitude of benefits and advantages to any type of wood flooring.
