Feather Your West Palm Beach Nest with Hardwood Flooring

We?ve been thinking a lot about well being lately, especially with a recent story that appeared in the Palm Beach Patch. It appeared on June 22, because June is the month of employee well being.

At Quantum Floors in West Palm Beach, we believe strongly that well being is for everyone, and that includes our customers. Many tend to think of well being in terms of only the physical, but there are actually many kinds, so we focus on the well being of our customers and their home.

Let?s get cracking on ?feathering your nest.? Do your floors need a do-over? If so, think about hardwood flooring; we?re the experts on that! It wasn?t so long ago that many only thought of solid hardwood as the only real hardwood flooring, but all of that?s now changed, with engineered wood capturing a majority share of the wood floor market.

Today, both solid and engineered hardwood flooring is used almost interchangeably, and, yes, since it?s real wood, it can be advertised as such in real estate marketing materials, making it attractive to prospective buyers.

What do we recommend for the Florida heat and humidity (not to mention the hurricanes)? Engineered hardwood flooring. It looks just like any other hardwood flooring, but it acts a little differently, because of its construction.

Engineered hardwood flooring is layered with real wood. There?s another layer of veneer on top. That?s what makes it so tough. Since the layering provides a kind of ?crisscross,? it doesn?t ?float? as with other hardwood flooring, making it more stable and more resistant to moisture. With that kind of hardwood flooring, you don?t need to worry about things like expansion or contraction, so you can even install it in the basement.

How tough is it? That depends upon the type of wood; the hard ones are birch, maple and walnut. Some of the softer ones, such as pine, won?t ever be seen in engineered hardwood, in fact.

Quantum Floors has been serving our hardwood flooring customers for the past 12 years and we are here to make this process as easy as possible for you. Although we?re the ultimate authority on hardwood flooring, we also carry a wide selection of laminate and luxury vinyl flooring.

Quantum Floors has showrooms in Boynton Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
