There are many reasons why homeowners continue to turn to hardwood flooring
for their homes. Some of the most well-known characteristics of the materials are their excessive lifespan and amazing appearance. However, there are many more reasons to pay closer attention to these materials.
For excellent functionality in a wide variety of spaces, you’ll love the way these floors stand up to heavy traffic, and how easy it is to refinish the materials instead of replacing them. But even more than that, you’ll love the opportunity to personalize these floors to your specific standards.
Before you even begin to consider the many great attributes of hardwood floors, you'll want to know some very important facts. The first is that solid hardwood is not a choice for below-grade spaces such as basements. If this is the area you need floored, we suggest you ask about engineered wood flooring
The second fact is that these floors must be acclimated, especially in humid areas, before installation can even begin. This helps to prevent warping, cracking, or splitting that can often occur if the humidity levels change after installation.
It’s easy to personalize solid wood floors, with plenty of options for species selection, stain color, and finish type. Species options provide woods that range from very soft to very hard, with harder varieties offering a great option for those busy spaces in your home.
Some finish types also work to protect your investment, hiding signs of wear such as scratching, scuffing, and water spots. But the best protection is a professional installation provided by trained and experienced associates with all the right tools for a perfect installation experience, every time.
