Mohawk is a name that leads the flooring industry. Mohawk flooring is available in many types and they offer a multitude of options for solid hardwood and engineered hardwood flooring. American Carpet Wholesalers carries a wide selection of both solid hardwood and engineered hardwood flooring from Mohawk at the best price available.
We have been discussing many hardwood flooring options and brands over the past few articles but now may be a good time for a review of what these two hardwood flooring types are. Solid hardwood flooring is just that, a solid plank of wood that is usually 3/4” thick.
• Solid hardwood from a quality mill will be the product of the best domestic or exotic wood types and can be found in a variety of widths.
• Solid hardwoods are usually able to be refinished and recoated two to three times depending on the initial thickness of the wood.
• Solid hardwood is not as durable when it comes to handling humidity and temperature variation and, honestly, should really be installed only above grade over a sturdy wood subfloor by nailing or stapling it down.
Engineered Hardwoods by comparison handle variations in humidity and temperature due to their construction (cross-ply in most cases). They share solid hardwoods use of quality domestic and exotic woods and can be found in multiple widths as well. Engineered hardwood does come in both plank and longstrip product and there are numerous widths, thickness, and finish for them. Engineered hardwoods can also be installed on any level of your home.
Mohawk flooring offers a huge selection of engineered flooring and we are going to look at the Alvarado Hickory collection. This engineered hardwood collection has 5 color styles available all with a beautiful rich medium tone finish. The flooring is a 5” plank with 3/8” thickness and beveled edge. Mohawk engineered hardwood flooring can be traditionally installed or can be in your home with what is called a float installation. With a float installation there will be minimizes mess, easier clean-up and can be used right away.
The solid hardwood we want to highlight is the Maple Ridge collection. These are light to medium tone finish 5” planks with a refined, high quality face on the plank. They are beautiful in any light and since maple has a higher resistance to light effecting its color its color should last and be enjoyed for quite awhile. Be sure to adhere to the manufacturer’s suggestions and warranty information for keeping your flooring in top shape.
