Mohawk Hardwood Flooring Product ReviewIf you're ready to do some shopping for hardwood for your room's new floor, then look no further than Mohawk. A huge name in the flooring industry, Mohawk brings excellence and variety as well as expertise to the hardwood flooring market. They have a huge array of colors, styles, and types of hardwood, and you can trust Mohawk's reputation for quality.

Hardwood flooring is a tremendous investment for your home or office. Its timeless beauty and luxury and its durability stands the test of time if maintained properly and will add value to your property like no other flooring product.

The first thing to realize is that there are a couple of types of hardwood flooring, and depending on a few factors, one might be better for your installation than another. What people typically think of first when you mention wood floors are traditional solid planking. It's basically what you envision, a solid "strip" of hardwood that is typically about three-quarters of an inch thick and can come in varying widths from a standard three-inch to up to seven inches and wider and varying lengths. This is a beautiful, classic option but does typically take a bit more care and maintenance.

An increasingly popular option is engineered wood flooring, which is made up of several hardwood "veneers" fused together and glued to the top of a fiberboard core. The engineered style looks, acts, and talks just like its solid brother, but it actually has some advantages. Its construction means its going to be harder and more durable than solid planking, and you can install engineered flooring in some places, below grade, for example, where you would never want to install solid hardwood flooring.

Along with its precision milling and construction, Mohawk provides finishing surface coatings on their hardwood products that protect the floor from, well, life, with superior performance.

Mohawk's hardwoods can be finished with CrystalShield™, Aluminum Oxide Ceramica, or Natural Oil finish. Each method has its own characteristics and benefits. You can find out which will be best for your environment. They also offer the Scotchgard™ Protector Advanced Repel Technology, which gives new hardwood floors maximum protection by chemically not allowing most dirt and spills, even paint or permanent marker, to adhere to the surface. Now that's protection of the highest caliber.

So check out Mohawk's hardwood flooring selections. Every color in the hardwood rainbow is available to you and can have the smooth, glossy finish or the rustic hand scraped, vintage look that is all the rage. You'll be delighted with Mohawk, no matter which direction you take.
