Understanding HDF Click Flooring
HDF Click flooring is just one kind of engineered hardwood flooring product that is available in today's hardwood flooring market. The “HDF” stands for “high density fiber.” These flooring planks, like other engineered hardwood flooring products are real hardwood flooring. They carry all the attributes of other engineered hardwood flooring except this type is specially made to click together during installation.
HDF Click flooring comes in smooth and hand scraped varieties.
Some of the benefits to high density fiber click flooring include:
- being a “greener”option because less of the actual tree is used in the manufacturing process, thereby contributing to sustainable forestry.
- that it can be nailed down, glued, stapled or floated into place giving a customer more options at the time of installation.
- being a better choice for anyone considering a DYI installation that does not consider themselves to be a professional hardwood flooring installer.
- weighing less because of how its manufactured.
- can appear in nearly every species, texture and color you might be looking for.
- offering extra unique wood grain pattern variations because more of the “waste wood” of the tree is used.
- can be installed “below grade” or in rooms that may be more exposed to higher moisture content such as bathrooms or basements.
Other benefits include:
- a probable cost savings compared to purchasing a similar looking solid product.
- more installation options giving you a wider range of product choices.
- being the easiest of all our hardwood flooring products for those wanting to tackle DYI installations, which can save you money.
- a manufacturing process specifically designed to reduce changes in the planks due to normal humidity which means potentially less noticeable problems visually overall.
HDF click flooring is a prime product for anyone who wants:
- a simple flooring product that offers the most flexibility when it comes to installation options.
- less to think about when it comes to whether or not a particular hardwood flooring option will work in your home.
- to feel good about supporting a “green” lifestyle.
- all the benefits a solid hardwood floor offers without as many potential headaches down the road.
- doesn't want a complicated process to deal with.
