Considering your options in hardwood flooring

For homeowners who need a great-looking floor with outstanding durability and lifespan, hardwood flooring certainly fits the task. It offers many options for personalization, especially when attempting to match a specific décor, yet keeps you current through trends as they change. You’ll want to take the time to find out more about what these floors can do for you.

Hardwood flooring can change everything

Everyone knows that hardwood floors offer one of the most extensive lifespans in the flooring industry. When properly installed and maintained, they will easily last 100 years or more for solid materials and 30 or more if engineered floors. Picking the perfect species is one of the most critical choices you'll make for this floor's durability since the harder species handle heavy traffic better than softer ones.

Another thing that adds life to your wood flooring is the refinishing process. After a few decades of wear, this service can strip away all the wear and abuse, leaving you with a fresh new layer of wood to restain and refinish. The results look like new flooring, but it’s far more affordable and gives you a few more decades before it needs to be repeated.

If you have below-grade spaces to floor, we recommend engineered wood flooring as an alternative to the solid variety. They perform perfectly in areas where dampness, moisture, and temperature fluctuations can happen at any time. Their construction also makes them a perfect addition to kitchens, foyers, and children’s rooms, while maintaining the continuity of the wood-look throughout the rest of your home, so be sure to ask about them when you’re ready.
