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. 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 a variety of manufacturers including Mohawk.

In 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 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 will open up spaces to produce an airy vibe. Golden honey tones 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 flooring will last for decades when properly cared for. We would love to give your home this timeless beauty.

There are many hardwood species, stains and finishes available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Bennett's Carpets, Inc. to view them in person.

Choosing the perfect hardwood for your home

Deciding to go with hardwood flooring in your home is a choice that will definitely withstand the test of time. It’s a flooring that has a long lifespan, goes with any décor and suits just about every homeowner’s style.

While solid hardwood flooring is definitely the option most people choose, your choices aren’t limited to that alone. You also have the option of engineered hardwood. While the lifespan isn’t quite as long, it certainly has its own benefits that are worth looking into.

Choosing solid hardwood

There are several reasons you might choose solid hardwood as your flooring of choice. First, its elegance is timeless. While flooring trends continue to come and go, hardwood has always been a constant.

It has held its value as a flooring material and offers many options with regard to wood species, colors, stain holding ability, grain and the ability to be refinished several times over its lifespan. Furthermore, should you decide at some point in the future to resell your home, hardwood floors only increase your home’s value on the market!

While solid wood is definitely a keeper when it comes to flooring, you should be aware that it should not be installed in basements. The fact is, solid wood is temperamental as far as temperature changes, moisture and humidity are concerned. Basement applications of this material would wind up costing more to repair and replace than it’s worth.

Choosing engineered hardwood

Another good choice for wood floors is engineered wood. This flooring has all the stylish good looks of regular wood floors, including a wide variety of wood species to choose from. Since engineered hardwood actually has a layer of real wood as its top layer, it can even be refinished at least once in its lifetime.

The benefits of engineered wood are what make most people choose it over solid wood. However, unlike solid wood, engineered wood doesn’t expand or contract with the changes in temperature or humidity. It is also more resistant to moisture, and can even be installed in the basement. Engineered wood floors make it easy for anyone to have the elegant look of real wood, with many of the benefits of laminate or luxury vinyl.
