Why choose hardwood?

Prized for its natural beauty and lasting durability, hardwood in your home makes a rich visual statement but keeps cleanup a breeze.

Hardwood floors combine strength and style; that’s why we recommend them for homes with both children and pets. Our wide variety of colors, textures, species and styles make it easy to find the perfect choice for your home.

We offer both solid and engineered hardwood from Mohawk.

In Mohawk’s solid wood flooring, each plank is a solid piece of wood from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods. These hardwood floors are best installed on or above grade. Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.

Engineered hardwood flooring from Mohawk is made from real hardwood with a cross-ply construction that resists expansion and contraction from humidity changes. It can be installed on any level.

Our favorite aspect about hardwood flooring is the way it looks. You can choose more uniform patterns or select a style with distinctive natural variations, knots and mineral marks. Light-colored hardwoods like grays will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones, the latest hardwood trend, add a warm ambiance.

Wide planks are perfect for crafting a historic or rustic feel and will enhance the natural beauty of any wood type you choose.

Hardwood surfaces will shine for decades. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

Hardwood flooring from Carpets & More

There are multiple constructions of hardwood that allow for flexible installation over different subfloors and for moisture mitigation. When purchasing hardwood from Carpets & More, let our designers know the type of subfloor you have, and the level of the home where the hardwood will be installed.

When installing hardwood, moisture consideration is necessary. Humidity changes can cause hardwood to warp or gap. Mitigating the effects of moisture keeps levels within the recommendation of the manufacturer.
Our designers will help choose the right hardwood construction and materials needed for installation. Installing a moisture barrier adds a layer of protection against damage. There are primarily three kinds of subfloors.

They are:

  • Concrete or basement below ground level
  • Ground level concrete
  • Above or at ground level concrete or plywood

Construction types of hardwood are solid and engineered. These choices come in various thicknesses and widths. There are several methods used in the installation of hardwood.
Solid hardwood flooring in Staten Island NY from Carpets & More

Solid hardwood

The ¾ or 0.75-inch piece of solid hardwood is what most people have in mind when they refer to hardwood. When exposed to moisture, solid hardwood expands. It can only be installed over a plywood subfloor above or at ground level. If the home has a crawl space, it is recommended to have a moisture barrier underneath the space to help in controlling moisture that comes through the ground into the home.

A thinner version of hardwood is available. However, it cannot be installed on concrete, or in a basement below ground level either, but thinner hardwood can be glued down to ground level concrete or installed over plywood at ground level. Using urethane adhesive for thin, solid hardwood is necessary. Moisture barriers are recommended.

Engineered hardwood

Engineered hardwood is designed to help mitigate moisture issues and for installation over concrete. Cross-layer construction prevents the hardwood from expanding to the same degree as solid hardwood. It can be installed anywhere in a home, including basements. Engineered hardwood is less expensive and more eco-friendly than solid hardwood.
