Understanding hardwood flooring pricesKermans Flooring
Hardwood floors come in a variety of styles and prices. From the most expensive – solid hardwood – to the least expensive – laminate wood – hardwood floors are a beautiful investment in your home. How do you decide which is best for you? Budget is certainly one factor. Let’s try to break down hardwood flooring prices.
Solid hardwood prices
Solid hardwood is always going to be at the top of the price range. Particularly if you’re looking at exotic hardwoods such as mahogany, Brazilian cherry or teak. With proper maintenance, solid hardwood will last the lifetime of your home. It’s heavy; can be sanded and refinished multiple times; and installation is expensive because of the natural characteristics of each board.
Engineered wood prices
Engineered wood is a little easier on the budget because it combines the strengths of solid hardwood with the flexibility of manufacture, laminate wood. Just like solid hardwood, exotic finishes are going to be more expensive than more common wood species such as oak or maple.
Laminate wood prices
Laminate wood offers the most affordable wood flooring option. It’s not quite as durable as solid hardwood but it is also not nearly as susceptible to problems from moisture or humidity. Laminate flooring is also very easy to install. Laminate flooring has come a long way and is available in a variety of finishes that can be the perfect fit in many room situations.
