Hardwood is a time-tested durable flooring solution for your home. It is known to add value to your home not only with its unmatched characteristics but also its long-lasting reputation. With hardwood flooring, you can transform a plain space into one that is elegant, warm, and inviting. Hardwood can handle a lot of everyday challenges that you throw at it, and as long as you keep a regular cleaning schedule you can expect your floors to last their life expectancy.
Installing a hardwood floor in your home is an investment, but it’s definitely worth it. Hardwood floors are durable and last a long time when properly taken care of. Keep your hardwood floors away from areas with high moisture and humidity. Instead, have them installed in bedrooms or living rooms. Be sure to regularly clean them, not only will they look better, but they will also keep their sheen for longer.
Types of Hardwood
When it comes to selecting hardwood floors, there are a variety of choices to compare. Different species of hardwood differ in strength and color, so if you need a floor to stand up to heavy foot traffic or children and pets, choose something like an engineered hardwood that is more stable. You can even choose between unfinished and finished hardwood for a customized look. There are only two different hardwood constructions available which are solid and engineered.
Solid hardwood is considered the original hardwood option. Its simple construction allows the natural characteristics of wood to stick out. Solid hardwood adds value and elegance to any room it is installed in. Engineered hardwood features a modern construction which is made up of multiple wood veneers pressed together cross-grain. This type of construction allows engineered hardwood to resist the natural tendency of hardwood to expand and contract, and also makes the planks more stable.
