Hardwood Floors for New England Living


Hardwood floors are the perfect fit for life in New England.


Nothing says life in New England quite like wide, weathered hardwood planks. Having hardwood floors in Connecticut is easily done, but we definitely recommend careful attention to your interior climate!



That means having a consistent relative humidity level and paying attention to your heat in the winter, and air conditioner in the summertime. Letting your new floor planks acclimate, and using proper sealant and finish will go a long, long way in ensuring your success.

Today, there are hardwood flooring styles for everyone.


Whether you prefer a classic style or something edgier, we have hardwood floors for every room. Emphasize your home’s rustic character with weathered, wide planks, or amp up your curb appeal with modern, sleek glossiness.

What Types of Wood Are Used in Hardwood Floors?

Hardwood floors are made from many different tree species. Your floor can be domestically sourced or hail from exotic coasts.

Choose from popular varieties like:


  • Oak
  • Pine
  • Maple


However, remember that each hardwood species is distinct in its hardness levels and abilities, so choose thoughtfully. It’s important to know that every hardwood species has unique features and grain patterns and will vary in terms of hardness.


The Janka Hardness Scale is a great tool for determining whether your desired hardwood has what it takes to manage your space. Harder tree species are sturdier, as a rule, so choose a harder floor for high-traffic zones.



What’s the Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?

Solid and engineered hardwood floors are almost impossible to tell apart. Under the surface, however, these floor families are quite distinct.



  • Solid hardwood floors are made using single, solid hunks of wood. Solid hardwood floors are pricey but prized by purists. They can be refinished repeatedly but cannot be used below grade.


  • Engineered hardwood floors are a more recent innovation. These compressed, manufactured planks contain layers of wood and resin. Dense and forgiving, engineered hardwood can go below grade. They’re popular for finished basements for this reason. Some, but not all engineered hardwood floors can be refinished once or twice.


Where Should I Install Hardwood Flooring?

Hardwood floors aren’t a traditional bathroom or kitchen option.


With research and consideration, however, you can install hardwood flooring in nearly every other area of the home. Hardwood floors are a traditional choice for living rooms, entryways, stairs, hallways, and bedrooms. They’re also great for offices, libraries, and retail shops.


Engineered hardwood floors are wise if you own pets or have small children. For solid hardwood floors, quiet rooms with consistent climate control work best. 



Planning Your Hardwood Flooring Installation

So- you’ve decided to install hardwood flooring, now what?


Proper installation is very, very important if you want your new floor to last as long as possible.


Hardwood installation is a lengthy and complex process.  Once our professional flooring installers arrive at your home or business, they’ll first prepare your subfloor, removing all traces of old floors and level your surface. The installation process can get tricky since perfect measurements are needed.


Professional flooring installation is almost always the best decision you can make when it comes to the future of your hardwood. Our installers will take extra care to ensure an efficient transition, and you won’t ever worry about whether your product warranty is honored in the future!
