Cape Cod is well-known for beautiful homes, and one of the trademarks of a traditional style home in the Cape is hardwood flooring.

Finding the right contractor for your floor installation can be exhausting. If you’re unsure of the options available to you based on your home specification, then you may need to speak with a variety of people before moving forward. The best way to save time is to bring in a skilled contractor that can evaluate your home and discuss if hardwood flooring installation is right for you.
It is possible that the cement or an existing tile floor may restrict your options when it comes to installing a new hardwood floor. Your options may include a traditional hardwood floor, vinyl plank flooring, or engineered hardwood options.
For some homes, a traditional hardwood floor is not an available option. However, vinyl planking is an option for many homeowners. Vinyl planking resembles the look of traditional hardwood flooring. Vinyl plank flooring is generally less expensive and lower maintenance than traditional hardwood. However, it is also softer, making it more susceptible to deep scratches and everyday scuffs. It can also not be repaired that way that homeowners can repair hardwood.
Installation for vinyl plank flooring often involves slotting the planks into place in a way where they interconnect. These planks are meant to fit together flush and do not leave gaps.
Engineered hardwood flooring uses many layers of hardwood and plywood. The primary difference between engineered hardwood and traditional hardwood is that traditional hardwood floors don’t use layers of wood. This option provides easier maintenance for homeowners, and it is highly durable.
There are a variety of ways that flooring contractors could install engineered hardwood. Our team will evaluate your needs and the materials to determine which method works best for your home.
