Concrete floors, basements and places with moisture will require engineered hardwood where layers of wood ply are covered with a real hardwood veneer. Acrylic Impregnated engineered floors while not solid hardwood are very durable and the color and finish go through all layers of the wood so scratches and dings
Since the overwhelming majority of wood floors are composed of solid hardwood, this care guide applies specifically to this type of flooring. Properly finished wood is the easiest of all floor surfaces to keep clean and looking like new, year after year, with only minimal care. How minimal? Vacuum and or dust mop weekly or
look at installation site for location limitations; solid floors - susceptible to moisture, not recommended for basements, or concrete slabs aluminum oxide added to urethane finish for increased abrasion resistance; acrylic impregnated acrylic monomers injected into cell structure for hardness, then finished with a wear
hardwood floors styles check installation site for limits of location; solid floors are sensitive to moisture; not good f concrete slabs or basements polyurethane tough, durable, and clear used as a wear layer; acrylic impregnated acrylic monomers implanted into cell structure for firmness, then polished with a wear layer.
Back in the day old guys knew how to separate the wood from the concrete and make glorious wood floors. When we had concrete slabs on grade or basement concrete floors old guys learned to install a continuous layer of bitumen over the top of the concrete surface (Figure 1 and Photograph 1).
