Engineered hardwood floors are a combination of solid hardwood flooring on top and unfinished plywood underneath. The benefits of engineered hardwood flooring are its increased strength, range of styles and finishes, and because engineered floors come prefinished there is no wait time for sanding and sealing.
Engineered wood flooring also works well in kitchens, basements, and bathrooms where light moisture might be present. When installed by a professional, engineered wood can be re-finished four to five times in its lifetime.
This is better for the environment and uses four times less of each log than solid hardwood floors.
Solid hardwood floors are cut from a solid piece of wood and are offered both unfinished or with a prefinished surface. Because the plank is made from 100% wood, it will react to changes in humidity, so it should be placed in rooms with low moisture levels. All of our solid wood floors come ¾" thick, which provides extra solidity for your floors. The benefit of this is that your floors can also be sanded several times. But because hardwood is especially prone to scratches and dents, you will want to pay special attention to the Janka hardness rating scale and buy a species (i.e., oak, ash, etc.) of wood appropriate to your lifestyle and your budget. Whether finished or unfinished, wood changes color over time due to oxidation and exposure to light. Most of the Exotic Species darken in color over time, while others lighten.We offer a variety of quality hardwood floors to fit any room or budget. No matter the style or finish you're looking for, an Arimar hardwood floor can turn any room into a masterpiece.
Our pre-finished hardwood flooring comes with 8 layers of transparent PU lacquer. The top layer has anti-scratch with UV resistant finish Treffert brand. All unfinished hardwood flooring comes ready for job site finishing. For best results, follow manufacturer instructions on proper floor preparation, sealer, and finish application.
