A: Hardwood flooring is available in three distinct types: solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring and long-strip flooring. These types differ in the way they’re manufactured, which has implications for where and how they’re installed, and how many times they can be refinished. Solid wood flooring, as its name implies, consists of a solid piece of wood with tongue and groove sides. Engineered and long-strip flooring are both manufactured by stacking thin layers of wood to create one wood plank.
A: Luxury vinyl flooring, aka LVP is a product made by layering different materials, including vinyl. The most common type of vinyl floor consists of four layers: a felt, fiberglass or vinyl backing; a core layer; a decorative layer with the flooring pattern; and a final “wear layer” on top that protects the flooring from scratches and scuffs.
A: When it comes to carpet, the options are virtually endless. But carpet can be split into three basic categories, based on the characteristics of the carpet’s surface. This visible, wearable surface, consisting of tufts of yarn, is called “pile.” Carpets are categorized as “cut pile,” “loop pile,” or “cut and loop.”
A: Laminate flooring offers home owners the look of real wood at a more affordable price. Laminate flooring is also more durable than wood and better at resisting dents and scratches. Additionally, laminate can be installed in rooms of the house where hardwood floors are not an option, such as in a bathroom or basement.
