Beautiful Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood Floors have been appreciated for ages for their beauty, warmth, convenience and value. Today’s technology gives you the opportunity to use it in various applications. Typically solid hardwood is installed over a layer of plywood or OSB subfloor. It is not suitable for basements or over concrete.
Solid wood flooring is hardwood flooring made from one solid piece of timber. Solid wood flooring is available in a wide variety of sizes and species ranging in durability from pine to maple. Solid hardwood products are available in different gloss levels and surface treatments like hand-scraped, wire-brushed, oiled, or etched.
Unlike quarter cut hardwood, most hardwood floors are made of wood that is cut along the wood grain called flat cut. This method allows for more economical floor production, minimizing waste.
We recommend that Solid floors be installed over 5/8″ plywood, 5/8″ T-G wood or 23/32″ OSB subfloor. Particle Board needs to be reinforced with 3/8” plywood.
Install only in rooms that are on the ground level or above. Nail or staple installation.
For basements we recommend Solid Sawn, Engineered or Laminate flooring.
Engineered Hardwood Floors are up to 8 times more stable than traditional solid wood flooring.
These specialty floors are ideal for condominiums, walk out rooms, basements, radiant heating and cottages.
Solid Sawn flooring is a new type of engineered floor. This advanced technology offers the highest dimensional stability.
There is much less chance of board distortion or separation caused by temperature and humidity fluctuations.
If you really like the look of wide plank hardwood flooring but you are not sure what type of wood is the best choice for your home, you need to take into account both your personal preferences as far as colours and textures are concerned, as well as some more practical concerns.

Beautifully designed in wood that is virtually indistinguishable from hardwood, these floors provide the utmost in flexibility—creating a statement for any room in your home and designed for easy living.
Wire-brushed flooring is handcrafted. The soft content of the board is removed with a wire brush creating a unique texture and appearance.
The hand made grooved surface absorbs stain with different intensity, enhancing the antiqued effect. The texture makes the floor very forgiving of wear and tear.
Cork is a completely renewable resource harvested as bark from living cork trees, never harmed by the harvest. Cork trees store carbon in order to regenerate their bark, and a harvested cork tree absorbs up to five times more than one that isn’t.
In recent years, vinyl plank flooring gained a lot of interest among homeowners. At Wood-Mood we offer vinyl floors for those customers, who look for durability and affordability, superior resistance to temperature and moisture, with minimal maintenance of their floor of choice.
