Why Choose Hardwood Flooring?
Adds warmth & uniqueness

Strong & easy to maintain
Naturally safe for the environment
Hardwood flooring is unique and warm. It has a natural essence of beauty with the ability to brighten any living space. Hardwood flooring is naturally durable and easy to maintain, and environmentally friendly. When selecting the right product, you’ll need to determine whether solid hardwood or engineered hardwoods are best for your project. Deciding on solid or engineered can be easy depending on what you are looking for and what kind of installation you require. There are three specific categories of hardwood flooring available when choosing: unfinished hardwood, prefinished engineered hardwood, and solid prefinished hardwood.
Your Hardwood Flooring Options
Solid unfinished hardwood must be installed above grade, over wooden subfloors, and typically can be refinished several times. On the other side, unfinished engineered hardwood products are great for customers needing to sand and finish wood below grade or install over concrete. Sand and finish wood is unique and gives the consumer the option to select their own custom stain color as well as specific finishes. Finishes vary between water base and oil base, and the overall finished product can differ depending on the sheen that is selected. For that customer who’s looking for the ultimate custom color and finish, we also offer all-natural oil finishes and on-site custom treatments. Do you want solid hardwoods with French white-wash look for your floor? Hillman Flooring has you covered. We offer many oil stains and wood treatments for any custom job.
Prefinished Engineered Hardwoods
Prefinished engineered flooring is ideal for someone doing a renovation on a tight schedule, or doing an install below grade or over a concrete slab. Engineered hardwoods are designed with cross-ply technology that resists most expansion and contraction from yearly humidity changes. They also offer a wide array of finishes and treatments that site-finish products do not. Because these products are factory produced the color and finish options are almost endless; hand-scrapped, wire brushed, distressed and chiseled or chattered faces, oil and water finishes, and even the option to be smoked.
Solid Prefinished Hardwoods
Although engineered products typically cannot be refinished, they are usually finished with multiple coats of aluminum oxide using a UV curing process. This can allow some finishes to last up to 50 years in a residential application. Prefinished hardwoods are excellent options for someone who may want more choices and a unique look out of their hardwood floor. In addition, prefinished products can help if you’re in a time crunch. Engineered products are ready to be installed out of the box, and with the proper acclimation, your floor can be installed and move-in ready within a day.
