What is the wood flooring cost for hardwood vs engineered hardwood?

Mountain Top Engineered Hardwood

Mountain Top Engineered Hardwood has a wood flooring cost of around $5 per square foot. Available in many warm colors, this product presents a rustic, shabby chic style with a wire-brushed texture, filled knots, and wood grain design. This engineered hardwood has a UV-cured finish and offers beveled edges. It is nonabsorbent and comes in random lengths with a 3mm veneer layer. It can easily be stapled, or installed using glue or floating installation. The planks are CARB certified and Lacey Act Compliant and come with a 35-year residential use warranty - making the lifetime cost of this product extremely affordable.

Ridge Line Solid Hardwood Flooring has a cost of around $6 per square foot. You may find yourself wondering what the difference in pricing is between this and the Mountain Top engineered product.

These planks are actual solid oak hardwood through and through, vs. engineered hardwood, which features layers of hardwood and plywood. With solid hardwood, it can be sanded and refinished many times over the course of its lifespan, where you can only sand and refinish engineered hardwood once. This reduces overall replacement costs for the solid hardwood flooring.

Ridge Line Solid Hardwood Flooring

The Ridge Line hardwood is available in many color tones, from brown to white, and creates the appearance of a shabby chic farmhouse. It has beveled edges and a UV-cured finish and can be installed using a staple or cleat process. This product also comes with a 35-year residential use warranty, making it another option with an affordable lifetime cost.

What is the cost of wood grain foam tiles?

Premium Wood Grain

Although Greatmats offers a number of foam tile options, the Premium Wood Grain foam tiles are among the most popular if you really enjoy the appeal of a wood look. They cost about $1 per square foot before installation - which you can do yourself - making this option an extremely economical one. These waterproof closed-cell foam tiles truly resemble the look of realistic, rich hardwood.

Little-to-no additional costs of tools or adhesive will be needed, as they are fast and easy to install without having to pay anyone to help. The only tools needed would be a sharp utility knife, a measuring tool, and a straight edge, should you need to custom cut the tiles.

Because these tiles fit together like pieces of a puzzle, if one or two become damaged, they can easily be popped out and replaced. So, the replacement costs are very low. This product comes with a one-year limited warranty.

Pro Basketball Court Gym Tile
