Hardwood Flooring from Loudoun Valley Floors
A timeless classic fit for nearly any home, hardwood is a popular choice for flooring. It is easy to maintain, comes in many styles, colors and designs, and can even add to the market resale value of your home. We offer both solid and engineered hardwood from a variety of manufacturers, as well as unfinished wood that is custom finished onsite.
In solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic or 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, or high density fiberboard, that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level, including a below-ground basement area.
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 also combine strength and style. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.
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.
