What to consider when you want hardwood floors

For a great many spaces in your home, hardwood flooring offers opportunities that are extremely beneficial in so many ways. Most homeowners are drawn to the extensive lifespan, which can easily reach 100 years or more with proper care and maintenance, as well as the timeless appeal that can last through trend after trend, keeping you current without ever having to change your floor covering. There are tons of other benefits too, and we’d like to let you in on all the details.

Solid hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for many spaces, but it’s important to remember that it can never be installed in below-grade areas such as basements. For spaces like these, you’ll need a floor covering that is not altered by humidity, dampness, moisture, or changes in temperatures. You should also remember that this material must be acclimated prior to installation, and moisture levels on your specified installation date could prolong the procedure. For more information about either of these, be sure to discuss it with your flooring professional.

A variety of sealants and finishes are available for your hardwood floors, including oil-based sealers and hard waxes. Oil-based products work particularly well because they soak into the wood as it wears and ages. Hard wax is an ongoing process but holds up well if maintenance is punctual. A finish like hand-scraped or vintage, that is the final step in your flooring installation, can even help to alleviate signs of wear like scuffing and scratching and is quickly becoming popular with many homeowners.

Our associates will help you choose the very best species for your floors as well since some species are harder than others and last longer under heavy traffic. For lesser traffic amounts, you can opt for a softer wood. No matter what options you choose, however, make sure to utilize a professional installation for the very best results.
