While natural hardwood flooring options are fantastic in their own right, problems can occur quickly when they are subjected to anything more than just a tiny bit of moisture. In situations where there is too much water or other liquids allowed to remain on the floor, the natural material will often suffer from swelling, warping, and even rot or mold. What’s worse, hardwood floors damaged in this manner usually require replacement rather than repair. Thankfully, this is where our Hawthorne engineered hardwood flooring (treated flooring) comes in.
Simply put, waterproof hardwood flooring is natural wood that has been modified through various means to become safeguarded against damage from liquids. For maximum protection, this flooring includes a quality protective finish that helps not only with water but with wear and tear that can otherwise accumulate over time. One major benefit of these floors is that they are far less likely than natural hardwood to expand and contract due to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. Additionally, it features a cross-ply construction that allows for installation above grade, below grade, and even over concrete. When installed, it is usually stapled or glued down, or otherwise floated over flooring already in place.
Hawthorne Engineered Hardwood Floors
With so many incredible options for waterproof hardwood flooring in Hawthorne, finding the right fit for your property may seem a bit intimidating. Don’t worry though, as our friendly flooring specialists are always available to discuss your needs and pinpoint the best available solutions. When selecting materials, three things to consider are wood species, color, and width.
There are numerous types of hardwood, each with its own benefits and best use cases. With this variety of species comes a variety of colors as well. In addition to common browns, there are also tans, grays, reds, and even off-white and black. Different colors create unique feels. Whereas medium colors often create a cozy feeling, dark is associated with modernity and lavishness, and lighter colors are more neutral and create a sense of spaciousness. We highly recommend choosing a flooring color that produces a nice contrast against any furniture in the room as well as the surrounding walls. As far as widths go, there are strips (less than 3 inches wide) and planks (3 inches or wider). Board width is an important consideration as it can significantly impact the floor’s overall appearance. Strips tend to make a room seem larger than it truly is. Planks provide a more rustic feel to the room. With width selection, it is worthwhile to note that wide width hardwood flooring typically works best for larger rooms rather than smaller ones.
