When you choose hardwood flooring
for your home, you desire many attributes that the material is known for. Stunning and timeless visuals, impressive durability and lifespan, and ease of maintenance are just a few of the factors that make this product line one of the most highly sought-after on the market today. Read along here to find out more about how these floors could become your own.
There's nothing quite like wood floors to create the look you want in any space. Décor matching options can be made by personalizing options such as species selection, stain color, finish type, format, and installation methods, to name a few. But many of these factors affect the performance of your floors as much as the appearance.
Species types, for example, have as much to do with durability and lifespan as they do with matching a specific appearance. Oak is an excellent example of a hardwood that can stand a wealth of traffic and remain nearly unchanged, even after decades of use. However, when wear begins to show, you can always choose to refinish the surface, which will give you decades more benefit, especially with solid wood varieties.
With solid hardwood, you will find a lifespan that can last well over 100 years, as you can see by visiting any historical building. Engineered materials can provide an average of 30 years or more with proper maintenance, with outstanding performance in below-grade areas where solid wood cannot be installed.
