Westlake Village Hardwood Flooring and Installation

Types of Hardwood Flooring

Here are some common types of hardwood flooring you might find:

  • Solid hardwood: The most durable and classic option, made from a single piece of wood. It can be sanded and refinished multiple times.

  • Engineered hardwood: A more affordable option with a real wood veneer on a plywood core. It's easier to install in basements or areas with fluctuating humidity.

Species of Wood

The type of wood will affect the price, durability, and aesthetics of the floor. Here are some popular options:

  • Oak: A classic choice, very durable, with warm tones and a variety of grains.

  • Maple: Light-colored and very hard, good for high-traffic areas.

  • Hickory: Harder than oak, with a beautiful graining but can be more prone to dents.

  • Walnut: Dark and rich-looking, but softer and more prone to scratches.

Other Factors to Consider

  • Thickness: Affects both soundproofing and durability. Thicker planks are generally quieter and more durable.

  • Finish: Pre-finished hardwoods are easier to install, while unfinished hardwoods allow for more customization.

  • Grade: Higher grades have fewer knots and imperfections, and a more uniform appearance.

By considering these factors, you can narrow down your choices and select the best hardwood flooring for your needs and budget.

Hardwood floors are a popular choice for homes due to their beauty and durability. However, they can also be quite noisy. Here's a rundown on how hardwood floors impact acoustics in your home:

The Downside: Noise Reflection

  • Hardwood floors are generally reflective surfaces. This means sound waves bounce off them instead of being absorbed, leading to:

  • Increased echo: This can be particularly noticeable in large rooms with minimal furniture.

  • More footstep noise: The clatter of footsteps can be amplified on hardwood floors.

 

Mitigating Measures

Underlayment: A layer of underlayment installed beneath the hardwood planks can significantly improve acoustics. Here are some types of underlayment to consider:

  • Soundproofing Cork

  • Rubber

By taking these steps, you can enjoy the beauty of hardwood floors without the noise drawbacks.
