Here’s what you need to know as you shop for hardwood flooring.


A Floor Fit for the Sacramento Valley

With the Sacramento Valley’s wet winters and hot, dry summers, hardwood flooring needs to be chosen with care. Relax, though: we’ve got you covered!

Engineered hardwood flooring is a “solid choice” for this region since it does well in humid conditions. Careful attention to which hardwood species you choose, as well as maintaining a consistent climate indoors will also go a long way.

Water or oil-based finishes will extend your floor’s life, adding another layer of protection against humidity, moisture, and daily wear.


How to Style Your Hardwood Floor

There are thousands of ways to enjoy hardwood flooring.


Styles range from traditional classics to ultra-trendy. There are sleek, skinny planks for a modern-loft style, as well as weathered, rustic planks to embrace farmhouse-chic….and everything in between. Hardwood floors truly bring you endless possibilities.


Express your personal style by combining your favorite:

  • Wood Species
  • Plank Widths
  • Plank Lengths
  • Shades
  • Stains
  • Finishes
  • Gloss Levels
  • Textures


Which Types of Wood Are Used in Hardwood Flooring?

Hardwood flooring can be made using both traditional and exotic tree species.


Each tree species has unique traits, benefits, and challenges. Namely, your preferred wood type has its own hardness level, so keep in mind that each wood species performs differently in any given setting. Our hardwood flooring experts can guide you towards options best suited for your needs and style.


Among the most popular hardwood options are: 

  • Hickory
  • White Oak
  • Red Maple
  • Maple
  • Birch
  • European White Oak


What’s the Difference Between Solid Hardwood and Engineered Hardwood?

Solid hardwood and engineered hardwood floors are impossible to tell apart, but don’t be fooled: there are some major differences under the surface.


  • Solid hardwood flooring- With each plank made from a single, solid hunk of wood, solid is the traditional form of hardwood flooring. It can be sanded down and refinished over again as the years pass. However, solid hardwood floors should best be reserved for quiet, dry spaces. It cannot be used below grade.
  •  Engineered hardwood flooring – A newer product series made from layered hardwood, engineered flooring is denser and offers a greater degree of flexibility. Engineered hardwood is much less likely to shrink, expand, or buckle from moisture or humidity. It also tends to be more affordable than solid hardwood and is appropriate for rooms set below grade

Where Can I Install Hardwood Flooring?

Hardwood flooring should be avoided in kitchens and bathrooms.


Engineered hardwood flooring can be used in finished basements. Solid hardwood flooring needs to be installed with planning and care, faring best in carefully climate-controlled areas.


Among the most popular spots for hardwood installation are:



Living Rooms

Dining Rooms

Home Offices

Family Rooms




Meeting Rooms

Retail Shops


Can I Install My Own Hardwood Floor?

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should: here’s why.

Hardwood installation is most often a time-consuming, hard, and frustrating process if you’re not used to it. It requires very careful measurement-taking, special tools, and plenty of patience. It’s also very physically demanding, as most of the time is spend on your knees. Newbies can very easily make some very expensive mistakes.


Even more important: most hardwood product warranties require professional flooring installation as a condition of future coverage. So, while it might be tempting to try and self-install and save money right now, this decision could end up costing you a great deal down the road!


Stay protected no matter what happens tomorrow and get you hardwood floor off to a healthy start by scheduling a professional flooring installation. We can help you plan for the best outcome.
