Hardwood Floors: Harris Wood

Posted: Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Harris Hardwood Flooring - Hardwood Product ReviewDo you have a taste for fine things? Does authenticity hold a lot of stock for you? Are you willing to invest in quality? If so, then hardwood flooring for your room or office is surely the way you want to go. Hardwood floors are not the maintenance boondoggle that some competing products' proponents might lead you to believe. You do have to take a bit more conscious care with your hardwood floor, but with the advanced finishing technology and quality products from companies like Harris Wood, your decision to install hardwood flooring is the right one.

Harris Wood has an interesting and distinctive history. The company started in 1898 as a small operation that produced hardwood strip flooring. The founder's son expanded the company in 1902 and became one of the premier hardwood flooring companies in New York City going into the 20th century. Actually, some of Harris' original work from the early 1900s is still in place today in luxury apartments in uptown Manhattan. With a rich history like this and having grown and developed since that time, you can trust Harris to be able to provide the best hardwood products for your project.

The huge selection of beautiful solid and engineered hardwood planking Harris Wood offers is superb. First, in case you've never compared the two different types, there are some features of each style that you might want to be aware of.

Solid's the easy one…pretty self-explanatory. The flooring strips are made simply of solid hardwood cut to the appropriate shape, length, and width, as well as with any special beveling or edging necessary for the look or type of installation desired. Engineered hardwood flooring, on the other hand, is made up of layers of hardwood veneers that are fused together on top and bottom (usually) of a fiberboard or plywood core. You certainly can't go wrong with either choice, but with engineered flooring, you'll get a big more strength and have a few more options for subfloor and locations for installation than you have with solid hardwood planking.

But whichever way you go, you'll be delighted with the colors, styles, and looks that Harris Wood provides. You can choose anything from a dark, creamy natural walnut to the mottled, distinctive look of yellow birch and just about everything in between. Have some fun and find the floor that punctuates your room with your style.
