Why choose hardwood?

Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood from a variety of manufacturers including Mohawk.

In solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.
Engineered hardwood flooring is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favorite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-colored hardwoods will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood flooring will last for decades when properly cared for. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

There are many hardwood species, stains and finishes available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Loudoun Valley Floors to view them in person.

Hardwood from Loudoun Valley Floors

Hardwood facts you should know

A timeless classic fit for nearly any home, hardwood is a popular choice for flooring. It is easy to maintain, comes in many various styles, colors and designs, and can even add to the market resale value of your home.

If you are considering hardwood floors in your home, you should note that solid wood is not a good fit for every room. Since it contracts and expands with humidity and certain weather conditions, it should only be used on the main floor.

Hardwood construction

Solid hardwood is, of course, the first choice for many. It is wood through and through and has the longest lifespan of all. Since it is solid wood, it can be refinished up to eight times before you need to replace it. This means that even if it acquires serious scratches, dings or scuffs, it can quickly be made to look brand new.

Engineered hardwood has the look of hardwood, and often has real wood in the form of veneer as the top layer. Engineered wood has a prefabricated core and special backing, and can be used on any floor of your home. This is primarily because it does not contract and expand with climate conditions. Some engineered wood is even waterproof or water resistant and can be used in areas where solid wood cannot.

Reclaimed wood is also a type of solid wood, but is more sustainable. Usually taken from old barns, vintage homes or from trees that have been underwater for some time, they make a great wood choice. They are a bit pricier than other woods but have a look so unique that many people prefer it over solid or engineered wood.

Species of hardwood

The species of the wood you choose will give it its own unique color, grain and design. Cherry wood, for example, has interesting colors you cannot find in other woods and can hold a stain well. Oak, a species often chosen, also holds stain well, and has intricate graining for a look all its own.

Here are a few of the domestic and exotic wood types you can choose from:
  • Cherry
  • Oak
  • Ash
  • Birch
  • Pine
  • Maple
  • Hickory
  • Bamboo
  • Tigerwood
