Why you will never go wrong with hardwood floors

Hardwood adds charm to any home and is versatile enough to fit into any decor.

There are so many other reasons to appreciate wood floors, however, and you will see exactly what we mean when you visit the flooring store to explore samples.

Indy Floor Source LLC is a 25-year-old, family-owned and operated company known for quality, integrity, consumer education, and installations developed from fine craftsmanship.

This is why we enjoy an A rating on Angie’s List, as well as a 5-star one on Houzz.

We are a hardwood flooring retailer, and we will guide you through the styles and many species, colors and finishes to guide you to the right one.

It is almost impossible to make a good decision when you are tired, hungry, and headachy and difficult to see how the flooring will look when it is in someone else’s building, not your own home.

Our store is a fully stocked mobile showroom where you can shop in the comfort of your own home and hold the samples up to your lighting, colors, and furnishings. Call us for an appointment.

We service the Greater Indianapolis, IN area including Carmel, Fishers, Westfield, and Castleton, and provide free in-home estimates.

Hardwood is a good investment

Whether you go for a solid or engineered hardwood style, you will recoup 70% to 80% of the initial cost, as reflected in your home’s property values. If you are planning to sell, know that buyers will sometimes pay as much as 2.5% more for a home with wood floors, not to mention the visual appeal that makes them sell faster and easier.

They also age well and last for decades, usually only requiring refinishing and not a total replacement.

Two hardwood styles

One is solid, one slab throughout a plank. The other is engineered hardwood.

The only difference between the two is the construction. Engineered has a slab of high-quality wood on top; this is called the veneer layer, and it provides the warmth, richness, and undertones we all desire. Underneath are at least three layers, but preferably more, of genuine wood combined with a little resin. The layers are placed in a crosswise position, giving it more stability and increased ability to handle wood.

As a result, it can be installed in some higher-than-normal moisture rooms where solid is not recommended, such as below-grade areas like the basement.
