Choosing Your Hardwood Floor
Lacquer vs. Oil
The modern, lacquered wood flooring is extremely tough and hardwearing while still protecting the “natural” coloring of the wood and preserving its warmth and vibrancy over the years. Unlike waxed/oiled finishes that require regular treatment to keep them maintained, lacquered floors take little more than sweeping or vacuuming with an occasional use of a wood floor cleaner. Lacquered finishes form a protective coating that is scratch and water resistant making it the ideal finish for the modern home.
Whether you prefer a smooth finish, a hand-scraped finish or even a heavily distressed floor, Vacaville Floorsr has what you are looking for.

Generally, the thicker the engineered hardwood layer, the more resistant it will be to damage. Most floors are rated for medium to high foot traffic. You should choose the right flooring for your high volume areas like kitchens to medium traffic areas like hallways.
