The addition of hardwood floors
can mean more for your home than you might think. It adds extensive durability, gorgeous visuals, and plenty of options to personalize the floors to your specific décor requirements and preferences. But it provides one of the most extended lifespans in the industry as well.
The hardwood process can take a bit of time to accomplish, from start to finish, but it’s a task that’s well worth it. You’ll gain the durability you’ve always wanted, as well as other benefits that you might not have considered when you started your flooring search. Let’s find out what some of those are.
If you’re new to this flooring line, it’s essential to know that solid wood is best suited for above-grade spaces and not basement installation. If you need flooring for a basement area, we advise looking into engineered materials, which are still real wood floors, but that hold up better in damp, humid areas. These floors, both solid and engineered, will also most likely require acclimation before installation, so be sure to ask about the length of time needed for your own home.
There are plenty of ways to get a stunning visual appearance and excellent décor matching floors, including species selection. But species choices can have a significant bearing on the durability of your floors as well. For instance, a heavily traveled space, such as a kitchen or hallway, would be best served by a hard species such as oak. Sealant, stain, and finish choices can also have a decorative and durable effect, and we’ll make sure you find the best ones.
