Hardwood floors are the perfect fit for life in the Merrimack Valley. These days there are more hardwood flooring options than ever, with floors available in a wide selection of premium cuts, shades, and designs.

We know how important it is to get the results you want when you invest in a new hardwood floor, and we’ll ensure you’re happy with the final product.



Why Choose Hardwood Floors?

Hardwood flooring isn’t just beautiful but also an investment that adds value to your home.



While the initial cost of genuine wood might be more expensive, with proper care and maintenance, most hardwood products last the life of a home. Hardwood is also hypoallergenic and easy to clean, while bringing classic beauty



Most types of hardwood can be refinished- you can even add a spill, stain, and abrasion-resistant surface that’s super tough. If you love redecorating regularly, a hardwood floor is a wonderful choice that can be revamped as your tastes change.



What are the Different Hardwood Species?

Hardwood floors are made from a range of domestic and exotic wood species, with the most common being red and white oak.



Maple is also a popular choice, although it can be more expensive. Other species include Birch, White Ash, and American Cherry. Each of these has different attributes like hardness levels, shock-resistance, and wood grain patterns. Many of them also change colors as they age.



Not sure where to begin? Use helpful tools like the Janka Hardness Scale, which rates the hardness levels of every tree species. Remember that spaces with heavy activity- like a family room or entryway, for instance- would benefit from a harder wood type.



What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?


There are two main types of hardwood flooring: solid and engineered.



  • Solid hardwood flooring is the more traditional option; it is one solid plank of wood. Its thickness and uniform construction bring you the ability to refinish it multiple times. Solid hardwood cannot be used below grade.


  • Engineered hardwood flooring is made up of multiple layers that are pressed together for increased stability from humidity and moisture. They can generally only be finished once or twice, although higher quality, thicker products may be finished up to seven times and last as long as solid hardwood. Use engineered hardwood everywhere solid can’t go- even in your finished basement!

We carry many of the best hardwood flooring brands in the region, so if you’re searching for hardwood flooring stores near you, Arrow Floor Carpet One is the place.



We have a range of wood species, styles, patterns, and shades to select from. You can also choose multi-length and multi-width planks to give your floors more dimension.



Additionally, you can decide how to finish your hardwood floors, which will determine how resilient they are to scratches, scuffs, and stains. For instance, you can pick prefinished wood flooring, which isn’t as customizable as unfinished hardwood, but is exceptionally tough.



Can I Install My Own Hardwood Floor?

In most cases, we don’t recommend it.



Hardwood flooring installation is a job that our experts spend their entire lives perfecting. It’s a messy and time-consuming process: one involving PERFECT measurement-taking, sanding, nailing, hammering, and before any of this can even get started, your subfloor needs to be clean and leveled.
