About Hardwood Flooring

The diverse range of species and hardwood types lends to several different home décor styles. Frazier’s Carpet One Floor & Home in Knoxville, TN carries a wide selection of hardwood options as well as popular brands and exclusive brands.

We can promise you that the initial investment of hardwood flooring in your home is worth it in the long-run. If you care for your hardwood floor, they will last almost the life time of your home, and they even add value where you didn’t know they could. If you have a home prone to allergies, hardwood may be for you because of its hypo allergenic qualities.
Where Can You Install Hardwood?
Although hardwood is known to be a durable floor, it does have its limitations. For example, solid hardwood can only be installed on and above ground rooms such as bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Engineered hardwood flooring features a little more flexibility, and can be installed in kitchens, hallways and even basements. So long as you care for your hardwood floors and do not continuously beat on them, they will last a long time in your home.
Be sure to avoid installing hardwood in places with a lot of heat and moisture like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
Hardwood flooring comes in a wide variety of styles, species, finishes, constructions and more. The different wood species range in color and durability. More durable hardwoods like oak and maple make great hardwood floors for families with an active lifestyle. If you want your hardwood to feature a custom finish, or it does not matter to you, there are unfinished and finished hardwood options available to you. The biggest decision with hardwood is choosing engineered vs. solid hardwood, both of which have beneficial characteristics such as refinishing.
Solid hardwood features a uniform construction, and has a classic look that adds value to any room it is installed in. You should really only install solid hardwood flooring in one and above level rooms of your home. Engineered hardwood features a modern, layered construction. This construction makes engineered hardwood more stable and resistant to the natural tendency of wood to react to changes in weather and humidity.
