Looking to upgrade or replace your current flooring? Perhaps you’re interested in attracting clients and customers. Whatever the reason, consider choosing commercial wood floors. Before you begin your flooring project, you’ll want to ask and answer these 2 questions about commercial wood floors.

  1. Which type of commercial wood floor is right for my business?
    You have two options, solid wood flooring or engineered wood flooring.Solid wood is 100% wood, and varies in thickness from ¾ to 5/16. This is a popular option for many businesses because of commercial hardwood flooring’s timeless beauty and its ability to be sanded and refinished many times.Engineered wood flooring on the other hand is made of real wood that is manufactured using layers of veneer, which may or may not be from the same wood species. One advantage commercial engineered wood has over solid wood is that is that it won’t expand and contract as much as solid wood with fluctuating heat and humidity.
  2. Which is the best wood species for commercial wood flooring?
    The best wood species for commercial flooring largely depends on your business’s style and budget.Oak wood is the tried and true choice for commercial flooring because of its durability, elegance, and if well maintained, a good return on investment. Commercial oak flooring is available in various colors white, natural, to deeper and richer browns.Commercial brazilian cherry has a gorgeous rich orange color and is dense enough to withstand heavy foot traffic.Solid Walnut flooring is distinct because its natural color hides dirt and dents better than other woods.  Walnut is resistant to denting and chipping and requires low maintenance care.

Why We Love Commercial Wood Floors

Not only do commercial wood floors add warmth, beauty and elegance to any area, they also have several advantages over other commercial flooring materials such as:

  • Hypoallergenic- wood floors minimized the accumulation of dust, mold and animal dander.
  • Increased value of property- realtors agree that buildings with wood floors usually sell more quickly for more money, up to 10% more, than buildings without wood floors.
