HARDWOOD FLOORING FACTSHEET: ROSEWOOD

shutterstock_615375701The material commonly known as Rosewood, is a richly hued lumber with a constant sweet-smell, hence the name. It comes from a number of different sources across the world, but they all originate from the genus Dalbergia, with one of the most common types known to us in the Western

World being Dalbergia nigra or Brazilian Rosewood. As the name suggests it’s found in Brazil, although this particular type of rosewood is currently an endangered species and incredibly rare, along with Madagascan Rosewood, that has been over exploited and despite an enforced ban on trading, is still digitally photographed now.

Other well-known types of rosewood used in furniture manufacturing and hardwood flooring are Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia), found in India and parts of South East Asia, as well as Dalbergia oliveri, known as Burmese, Loas or even Asian Rosewood.
Although all genuine rosewoods come in the Dalbergia genus, there are other forests from various species also frequently known as rosewood, like Australia Rose Mahogany or even Bolivian Rosewood, since they have the same distinctive and long-lasting candy odor.

The attributes of Rosewood imply that it is incredibly heavy, dense and durable perfect for large pieces of furniture or floors. In fact that the Dalbergia sissoo from India and Bangladesh is actually stronger than teak and just as equal in price also, so makes for a good option for high quality furnishings.

What is Laminate Flooring and why it is different?

laminated-flooring-winnipegfloorLaminate flooring is a versatile and sturdy kind of hardwood floors. Laminate flooring is basically made up of melanin resin and fiberboard material, while the top layer instead of being a thin veneer of genuine hardwood, is a imprinted textured image made to seem like wood.

This is an important distinction between laminate and engineered since laminate is a factories attempt to come the nearest to what it believes real wood should look like. From the first days of laminate flooring the outcomes in the factory were less than appealing. However, with improvements in technology there’s been remarkable improvements in the overall look and the feel under foot of the laminate floors.

As it’s the cheaper of these choices, laminate floors is a fantastic options for people on a budget and also for broad scale commercial uses. I would strongly suggest looking into laminate flooring for areas of the home like the basement or in high traffic areas such as mudrooms as they will last considerably longer than your conventional solid hardwood flooring (and really who would like to cover all that money to have expensive floors ruined by kids!) .

For setup functions laminate is the easiest and quickest to install. Heck you may not even 11150242_10152948300829580_3653082796195608977_n.pnghave to pay someone to install it because of its interlocking system that does not require adhesive, staples, or nails. With solid or engineered I would advise using a professional install them for you as they tend to be somewhat trickier to install and less pliable.

Laminates biggest drawback is its own lifespan. While solid hardwood flooring can last as much as a century if properly maintained, laminate flooring begin to fade after closer into a decade and there’s not much you can do in order to bring them back into their original lustre such as its solid or even designed cousin. So just like with any job it is dependent on what you as the homeowner wish to accomplish. To help in your selection make sure that you visit The Hardwood Flooring Store and talk with one of our qualified agents today and begin on your next renovation project.

Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring

Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is a solid piece of wood from the top to the bottom. The thickness varies from ¾” to 5/16”. Those wood floors can be installed both above and on grade, and they can be sanded and refinished during its service life.
Engineered wood floors from other side are also real wood floors made by using multiple wood or wood composite veneers. The veneers can be from the same or from different wood species. It have a great stability because the grain of each veneer runs in different direction. This mean that the wood will resist expanding and contracting during fluctuations in humidity and temperature which is really making it wide usable. This type of flooring can also be sanded and refinished and it can be installed above, on or below grade.
