Hardwood Flooring

Selecting which flooring to use at home is a difficult decision for any family. With so many benefits to using hardwood, it's Grand Floors' passion to provide the largest selection to our customers. We pride ourselves in teaching our clients and helping this choice become the simplest decision in their home improvement project. Hardwood flooring is created using planks made from a single piece of lumber. Making this choice will benefit your wallet for years to come.

Using this single thick plank method, the flooring can be re-sanded and refinished time and time again and this will protect your investment. Wood is a traditional choice for the home. Its timeless aesthetic has earned it the reputation of being one of the top flooring choices in North America.

The Difference Between Hardwood Flooring, Laminate Flooring & Engineered Hardwood

Not everyone is a flooring expert, and making a decision between hardwood, laminate, and engineered flooring can be confusing. Grand Floors is here to end that unrest and put a stop to the confusion.

  • Hardwood flooring is created from a single plank of wood and is appropriate for installation in any above ground room in the house. Solid hardwood cannot be installed directly on concrete. The moisture generated from the concrete in a Canadian climate can cause it to expand.
  • Engineered hardwood is composed of a number of plywood and block layers making a subfloor unnecessary, and is appropriate for any floor in any home or condominium.
  • Laminate flooring is synthetic wood flooring, which means it is not even wood at all. Even though the core of laminate is not real wood, all of our laminate choices provide a real wood aesthetic.

The Healthy Choice

Making the hardwood choice can be beneficial in more ways than just its appearance. The wood itself provides health benefits to your family. Your household air will be cleaner because wood does not trap dust. This hypoallergenic property can be a wonderful comfort for the wellbeing of you and your loved ones.

Not only is hardwood a good choice for your family's health, it is a good choice for the health of our planet. Wood is a green material, which means that it is a sustainable resource and regenerates. By choosing a renewable resource it allows for a smaller ecological footprint from the time of extraction to installation.

Trees For Wood Flooring

What We Offer

At Grand Floors, we offer both prefinished and unfinished products. Although unfinished can have an old world appeal, prefinished flooring allows for quick installation as well as a very durable finish. With prefinished floorboards, there is no more waiting around for an on-site finishing job. Prefinished products offer a VOC (volatile organic compound) free finish and a number of scratch-resistant options.

On top of being an overwhelmingly pocket-friendly choice, prefinished floors often come with warranties. With Preverco Flooring, professionally installed hardwood floors have a 25-year service life warranty when manufacturer guidelines are properly followed.

At Grand Floors, we offer a warranty on all floors that we install. Hardwood can be re-sanded and refinished several times when wear and tear occurs. This process will bring even the most tattered looking floor back to life.

Scratch Resistance

When looking at the scratch resistance of hardwood, due to modern technological advances in wood finishing, the finish on the wood itself is the major consideration. Lately, the most advanced manufacturers are offering scratch-resistant finishes on different species of flooring.

When a smooth and high gloss finish is chosen, the surface will be easier to scratch than a wire brush, distressed or matte finish. This flooring becomes more scratch-resistant and durable for higher traffic areas with a textured finish.

Common Flooring Questions

So you have chosen hardwood flooring for your home, but the decisions don't stop there! Wood species is always a big debate when discussing d├ęcor of the space you are updating. When choosing your species, there are a few options to consider. The size of your space/ rooms, the feeling you want your room to have, and the class of the decor. It is best to choose woods that correlate with your existing home decor. We suggest matching or contrasting with your kitchen cupboards, furniture, and the colour of the walls in your home.

  • If you want your room to appear larger, choose softer looking species such as maple, yellow birch, or silver maple.
  • If you are choosing floors for a cottage and want it to have a cozy ambiance, choose grain induced wood such as ash, hickory, red oak, white oak and walnut.

Not necessarily, humidity is an important aspect to consider before installing hardwood flooring in your home. Living in Canada we know that weather changes, and with a change in weather comes low and high humidity levels.

There are positives and negatives to both finished and unfinished floors. When considering which is best for your home, you should understand the procedure involved and that it may leave residual scents that linger in the air when having a floor finished in the home. The waiting time for the finish to cure is also an aspect to think about.

With so many benefits of hardwood and the care we take to keep our floors looking great, this question obviously comes up a lot. The truth is that hardwood and pets do work well together. There are some elements to consider when it comes to hardwood, to avoid any accidental puppy damage. It's a good thing to note that hardwood is a more sanitary option when it comes to animals because cleanup is much quicker and efficient. Animals and carpet have been seen as natural enemies. An animal accident can seep in immediately, even with appropriate cleaning procedures, making proper training very difficult.

When investing in a new floor for your home it is essential to know what cleaning products will enhance its lifespan. The type of flooring and the finish will determine which method of cleaning will be best for your updated room. Certain methods of care must be used to ensure your home maintains a beautiful and new appearance.

It is suggested that wood flooring should never be cleaned with a wet mop. When using water as a cleaning agent, ensure the mop is adequately wrung out and that water is not dripping from the mop head. Avoid using vinegar and citrus-based sprays, as these ingredients will compromise the look of your gorgeous new floor.
