Where can you Install Hardwood?
Hardwood flooring is known for being durable and long lasting, but it needs to be installed in certain areas of your home to live out its intended lifecyle. For example, solid hardwood can only be installed in on and above ground rooms like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. Due to its simple construction it is not build to handle heavy foot traffic. Engineered hardwood flooring can be installed in kitchens, hallways and even basements due to its durable construction.
Hardwood should not be installed in places with a lot of moisture and humidity like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
