Hardwood Flooring in Texas
Looking for flooring you won’t have to replace soon? Hardwood flooring has long-lasting beauty and natural appeal. It increases the value of your property and can be refinished multiple times throughout the years in completely unique styles to give your home a fresh look.
Casey Carpet One Floor & Home is your local hardwood flooring source. Our experts are here to help you navigate our expansive hardwood flooring selection and find the perfect floor for your home.
Each hardwood plank can be finished in numerous ways that alter and enhance its appearance.
The above are all ways to determine your hardwood style. You’ll find rustic options like wide plank natural oak floors with a matte finish and weathered texturing, as well as more eclectic styles, like multi-color wood floors.
Hardwood flooring is available in a wide selection of domestic and species.
Cork and bamboo aren’t technically made from hardwood, but bamboo grass and cork tree bark. Both are considered renewable and eco-friendly because harvesting them doesn’t kill the plant, and they regenerate quickly. However, many of today’s hardwood forests are also harvested with sustainability and responsibility in mind. Each species offers different looks, shades, grain patterns, and hardness levels.
Manufactured using fine, wooden veneers, engineered hardwood flooring planks are bound together to form sturdy cross-grains. These layers play a vital role in your floor’s ongoing endurance. Engineered planks won’t expand or contract from humidity or climate fluctuations. They hold their own against heavy or constant foot traffic and are more affordable than their solid counterparts. An engineered hardwood floor can be sanded and refinished once or twice over its lifespan. Unlike solid hardwood, your engineered floor can be installed in all levels of your home.
Solid hardwood flooring is the traditional way of enjoying this floor. Crafted from solid hanks of organic wood, solid hardwood flooring’s appeal is widespread. It has heirloom potential and adds ongoing property value if professionally installed, situated, and maintained. Solid hardwood isn’t without its limits. It cannot be installed in spaces below grade and isn’t recommended for kitchens and bathrooms. Still, solid hardwood beckons both beauty-seekers and style chameleons alike. It can be sanded and refinished over its lifespan, and if carefully cared for, your great grandchildren might one day play on the floor you install today.
The type of hardwood flooring you want and the room you want to install it in are interdependent. Solid hardwood fares best in low-moisture rooms that are above-level. Engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home, including basements and more moisture-prone spaces like kitchens, mudrooms, and hallways.
The most versatile option is our exclusive Hydrotek™ Waterproof Hardwood collection. Each plank features a real layer of hardwood at the surface and a waterproof vinyl sublayer below. You can install Hydrotek in kitchens and bathrooms without worry. Modern wood floors are also generally finished with ultra-resilient finish coatings that are highly resistant to scratches, dents, stains, and more, so you can rest assured your gorgeous hardwood planks will stay looking beautiful overall.
As the seasonal climate shifts, your flooring challenges are just beginning. A home that’s too cold, too hot, or too humid can have devastating results on your floors.
Hardwood planks can quickly shrink, expand, or warp. To avoid future pitfalls, work with an experienced installer while choosing a flooring that’s the best fit for your home. Maintaining a consistent relative humidity level is likewise of utmost importance. We recommend maintaining a relative humidity level that’s a consistent 42 percent. Tools such as hydrometers and humidistats can help you maintain this level. Other helpful items to have on hand include insulated drapes, dehumidifiers, and air conditioners can also help.
