At Elegant Floor Service, we keep an extensive selection of hardwood flooring on stock to help you come up with something that’s uniquely yours. Popular options include:
Looking for something a little more exotic? Brazilian Chestnut, Ebony, Ivory Maple, and Gingerwood are just some examples of exotic woods that can beautifully accent a room—and the color is long-lasting so you can rest assured it won’t fade.
Consider the style of your home and how much foot traffic your rooms typically see when making your decision. For example, if you want hardwoods in your entryway, you may want to steer clear of Cherry wood. Cherry wood is a soft wood and should be used as an accent; it won’t last well in a high-traffic area like an entry way. If you need help making a decision, don’t hesitate to ask our hardwood floor installation specialists during your consultation—after all, we’re here to serve you!
When it comes to hardwood floor installation in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia, you have the choice of either pre-finished or unfinished wood.
Pre-finished wood flooring does not require any sanding or staining and can be refinished many times. Installing pre-finished wood flooring generally tends to cost less, leaves a minimal amount of odor, and provides higher durability even in high-traffic areas.
But unfinished wood flooring is a better option if you plan to install floors throughout the whole house. Unfinished wood flooring presents a more consistent, even color and finish, and is easier to match staining, if you are looking for a new floor that matches existing flooring or trim. Unfinished wood flooring, more commonly installed than pre-finished, needs to be sanded, stained, and sealed after installation.
In addition to choosing between prefinished and unfinished flooring varieties, you also have the option to choose either solid or engineered hardwood floors.
Solid hardwood flooring is made up of single slabs of wood that can be sanded and refinished many times, extending the life of your floors. However, they tend to expand and contract if there’s a humidity change in your home and cannot be installed over a concrete subfloor.
If you’re considering engineered wood flooring for your hardwood floor installation project, you’ll find that it’s more durable and able to resist warping even in high-moisture environments. This is because engineered floors are bonded together using heat and pressure. Additionally, they can be installed in any room of the house—even over the basement!
There are many benefits to installing hardwood floors in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Virginia, including:

It’s also important to decide if you want:
Pre-finished hardwood floors are low-maintenance, require no sanding or staining, and can be refinished multiple times. They also tend to have lower installation costs, leave minimal odors, and are extremely durable, making them the perfect choice for high traffic areas.
Unfinished hardwood floors are better for those looking to replace flooring throughout the entire house. They offer a more consistent, even color and finish, making it easier to find a stain to match, but need much more maintenance to retain their look.
Solid hardwood floors, which consist of single slabs of wood, can be refinished multiple times. However, they tend to expand and contract with changes in moisture or humidity, and cannot be installed over concrete subfloor.
Engineered hardwood floors, which are bonded together using heat and pressure, are more durable and resistant to warping in high-humidity environments. They can also be installed over any type of subfloor.
