Essential facts about hardwood flooring

Once you narrow down your chosen floor covering to hardwood flooring, you still have many options to consider before we can begin the installation. The choice you make in this pre-installation phase will affect everything about your overall flooring experience, so it’s important to understand a few basic principles. We want to give you some information that may be crucial to your home’s floors, so read along with us now.

Hardwood flooring has so much to offer

One of the things that wood flooring is best known for is the average 100-year lifespan that means you’ll never have to replace these materials for as long as you own your home. The materials offer excellent durability, especially when choosing a wood species that best matches your in-house traffic levels. The refinishing process is another service that can extend the life of these floors extensively.

During refinishing, decades of wear are stripped away from the surface of your wood flooring. A fresh new layer of wood is revealed, allowing you to add a new stain color, sealant, and finish type. Some homeowners prefer to go with their look before the refinishing process, while others change things up for a new look and feel.

Solid wood is a perfect choice for so many spaces, but you can never install it in below-grade or basement rooms. In these areas, we encourage engineered wood flooring as an excellent alternative. It’s not only real wood flooring, with a wood veneer layer on top, but it also performs well in areas experiencing dampness, humidity, and frequent temperature changes.

If you'd like more information about these materials, be sure to stop by. Our associates will address all your needs and work to offer perfect wood materials. See what we have to offer today.
