Many homeowners come to hardwood flooring for the extremely long lifespan it offers. With proper installation, maintenance, and cleaning, these floors can last more than 100 years with ease. Other options that affect the lifespan of these floors include species selection, sealant, and finish type. When these work together, even in busy homes, the outcome is phenomenal.
Another drawing feature of these floors is the stunning and timeless appearance options that match a variety of décor perfectly. With natural and stain colors that range from very light to impressively dark, you're sure to find a match, or create a brand-new look for new construction or remodel.
In hardwood flooring, species selection should come first. Some are much harder than others and will stand up better under heavy traffic, children, pets, and high heels. Once you’ve got the perfect species, you can choose the sealant that fits your requirements. With the right finish, such as distressed or vintage, you’ll even find fewer signs of everyday wear.
If you need to floor a basement or other below-grade space, you’ll find that solid wood is never the right option. However, engineered flooring can be an excellent alternative. Be sure to ask about the differences if this is a requirement of yours.
