There are plenty of characteristics in hardwood flooring that make it appealing to a variety of homeowners. Some are drawn specifically to the extensive lifespan, while others prefer its stunning elegance. Getting both advantages in one material is even more appealing.
These floors are also very easy to customize, with an array of options for appearance, durability, and embellishment. This allows homeowners to truly personalize their flooring for a great match, no matter what their décor or interior design scheme. There’s plenty more information about these materials at our hardwood flooring store.
Hardwood flooring has a lifespan of at least 100 years with proper care and maintenance. Since it lasts so long, it’s often the last floor covering most homeowners ever install in their homes. The ability to refinish these floors instead of replacing them means it’s a very affordable option over time. Adding great value to homes, it even translates into a higher sale price, if the home is sold after this flooring installation.
It should be noted that basements and other below-grade spaces are never an optional installation for these materials. They must also be acclimated before installation for the best results, as the humidity levels in the materials and the space into which it's being installed must match or be as close as possible.
Wood floors provide excellent stability, thanks to a thicker, denser product, and are incredibly durable. To increase the durability, be sure to speak with your flooring professional about the best species for your lifestyle and traffic level.
To add to your décor-matching personalization, there are plenty of options in species, stain, color, and finish selections. The flooring you want and need is closer than you think.
