Commercial wood flooring traditionally falls within the categories of solid hardwood, engineered hardwood and locking hardwood floors. Solid hardwood uses planks that come from a single piece of wood, can be repeatedly sanded to last for years and must be nailed or stapled to a wooden sub-floor. Engineered floors are made by fusing together layers of hardwood for extra stability. They can sit nearly anywhere in a facility because they can stand up to higher levels of moisture and humidity and are designed for installation over concrete. A locking, or floating floor is an engineered floor with a locking tongue-and-groove system that minimizes installation costs by eliminating nails, staples, and glue.
For some, nothing beats the classic look and feel of real wood flooring. It’s versatile, with options for any interior design and nearly any application, aside from the heaviest load uses and specialty healthcare settings. Commercial wood flooring is hypoallergenic, can last for decades with the right care and is easy to clean and maintain.
Your choice between engineered and solid hardwood is driven by the floor’s location within a facility, its subfloor and your required installation parameters. We can accommodate any commercial wood flooring project with our installation expertise and can advise you on the best materials for your subfloor. In addition to deciding between an engineered or solid hardwood floor, you’ll want to consider several variables.
For many applications, traditional, commercial wood flooring isn’t as cost-effective a solution as more modern synthetic options. But when properly installed, it can last for many years with minimal maintenance and deliver a great long-term value. One key cost consideration is moisture, as it can cause warping and gapping. We test to ascertain if your concrete or sub floor is at risk of moisture and provide moisture remediation and surface preparation if any issues are present.
