Wood floors are a great investment and one of the most beautiful improvements you can make to your home. There are many options available to the consumer today including solid wood floors, engineered wood floors and floating wood floors.

But the type of floor you use has a great deal to do with where in the home it will be used and the level of abuse it will take.

In this tutorial Wood Floor Basics I'll guide you through the different types of wood floors available and even explain how a small ball bearing less than a half inch wide is used to determine the hardness of your wood floor.

(1) Engineered timber flooring melbourne says:

Real wou that are soid and about one inch thick like your talking about are still avialable but expensive. But since it is then sanded and fiinished that is understandablte but it loks much better than prefinish thin wood and will last a lifetime or more. Also they can be refinished many times over. Some like the prefiinised but they really only last so long anyway.Many woods now are very easy to dent so ma-ple or oak are still good.No problem with smeel now with the caytalized watre based finishes.
