Manhattan Beach Hardwood Flooring and Installation

The Perfect Floor for Your Home

Our team at EKO FLOORING understands that choosing the perfect floor can be overwhelming. With so many options available, it's important to consider your needs and budget. Hardwood flooring remains a timeless classic, offering enduring beauty and value. But within the category of hardwood itself, there are several choices to explore. Let's delve into the world of solid wood, engineered wood, laminate, and vinyl flooring, and understand what factors influence their cost.

Solid Wood: The Benchmark of Luxury

Solid hardwood flooring is the epitome of elegance and quality. Crafted from a single plank of natural wood, it boasts a richness and warmth unmatched by imitations. This translates to a higher price point due to several factors:

  • Natural Beauty: Each plank is unique, showcasing the distinctive grain patterns and variations inherent to real wood.

  • Durability: Solid wood is incredibly strong and can last for generations with proper care. It can be sanded and refinished multiple times, increasing its lifespan and value.

  • Versatility: Solid hardwood comes in a vast array of species, from the classic oak and maple to exotic woods like Brazilian cherry. This allows you to create a floor that complements any design style.


Engineered Wood: Affordability Meets Style

Engineered wood offers a beautiful and cost-effective alternative to solid hardwood. It features a core of plywood topped with a real hardwood veneer. This construction method makes it more dimensionally stable, meaning it's less prone to warping or cupping from humidity changes in Manhattan Beach. Engineered wood is still considered a premium product, but generally comes at a more affordable price compared to solid hardwood due to:

  • Material Efficiency: By using a core material and a thinner layer of real wood, engineered planks offer a balance of beauty and value.

  • Wider Plank Options: Engineered wood can be manufactured in wider planks than solid wood, creating a more modern and expansive look.


Laminate: Budget-Friendly Realism

Laminate flooring is a synthetic option designed to mimic the look of wood at a significantly lower cost. It's constructed with a high-density fiberboard core topped with a photographic image layer protected by a wear layer. While it doesn't possess the natural warmth of real wood, laminate offers several advantages:

  • Affordability: Laminate is the most budget-friendly option among the choices we've discussed.

  • Easy Installation: Laminate planks typically click or lock together, making DIY installation a possibility.

  • Durability: The wear layer makes laminate resistant to scratches and stains, ideal for high-traffic areas.


Vinyl: A Waterproof Choice

Vinyl flooring offers a realistic wood look with the added benefit of waterproof properties. It's constructed with multiple layers, including a PVC core and a printed wood-grain design layer protected by a wear layer. Vinyl is a great choice for areas prone to moisture, like kitchens and bathrooms. Here's what affects its cost:

  • Quality of the Wear Layer: Higher quality wear layers offer better scratch and stain resistance, impacting the price.

  • Waterproofing Features: Completely waterproof vinyl will cost more than water-resistant options.
