Take advantage of our selection of quality hardwoods
Hardwood Flooring in El Centro
Gordon’s Carpet One is home to a great selection of quality hardwood flooring brands that you certainly can trust. And, we offer a few different hardwood services, including installation and refinishing. It's therefore no surprise that we're your neighborhood experts when it comes to hardwood.
Although resilient flooring options such as luxury vinyl flooring have become popular, hardwood continues to be a top-choice among homeowners because of its natural style and character. Hardwood's style and character cannot perfectly be replicated, so hardwood continues to add tremendous value to any home.
Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
Hardwood flooring is available in solid and engineered constructions. Solid hardwood planks are made from uniform strips of wood and nothing else. These planks are typically thick enough to handle multiple refinishings. For extra durability, many homeowners opt for engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood has a special layered construction, so it is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. Nonetheless, engineered hardwood is only made from real wood. Also, because of its layered construction, engineered hardwood usually cannot be refinished as many times as solid hardwood
How does finish work? Hardwood finish is applied to the surface of the hardwood planks, and it protects against scratches, scuffs, and other surface blemishes. Finish also can add some extra shine to the surface. Finish can be applied after the hardwood floor is installed, or it can be applied before installation. Prefinished hardwood is often more resistant because the finish is applied by the manufacturer in a controlled environment.
Unlike other flooring options such as luxury vinyl and laminate, hardwood flooring can be refinished. Hardwood refinishing involves removing the old finish from the surface, smoothing the surface, and then applying new finish to the surface. What results is a hardwood floor that looks as good as new. We are happy to offer hardwood refinishing services, so be sure to visit our hardwood refinishing page to learn more.
Our Hardwood Selection
We have one of the largest hardwood selections in the El Centro area. We, for example, have Carpet One exclusive brands such as Invincible and Rustic River. Invincible hardwood is available in a wide variety of natural looks, while Rustic River offers high-character looks.
In addition, we have hardwood styles from the Mission Collection, Garrison, and Royal Oak. Mission Collection hardwood is inspired by California, and it features handscraped and multi-width plank looks. Likewise, Garrison hardwood is available in handscraped looks, and it also features durable finishes. We love Royal Oak hardwood from D&M because it's made from naturally-aged European oak.
