Getting the most from your hardwood floors

No matter which flooring you choose, it should be able to do more than one job, and hardwood is fit for just that purpose. In addition to a kind of timeless elegance that is hard to rival, you’ll also find the durability and lifespan that can make it the last floor covering you’ll ever need to install. The stunning beauty you’ll bring to each room tells your guests you care about your home as well as their visit. The functional sturdiness means that your floors can stand up to heavy traffic and so much more. And that’s only the beginning.

Hardwood options, choices, and benefits

Every homeowner prefers the most gorgeous flooring available, but there’s more to it than that. You also want to be able to personalize your floors so that they have a hint of your own personality. Hardwood floors start off with your choice of wood species, which is determined by your specific traffic levels. The more traffic your floors see, the harder the species should be to tolerate the wear.

Stain color is a heavily discussed topic in hardwood flooring, and you’ll want to know all you can about it. The most important thing to know is that you’ll have more color and hue options if you choose a site-finished product. Prefinished materials allow the installation to be completed quicker but limit those color choices. Speak with your flooring associate to find out which one will really be most beneficial to you.

Another important thing to remember is that this flooring can never be installed below grade, for instance, in basements. Only on or above grade installations will work. There are alternatives for these spaces, however, so if you have areas such as these that need flooring, our associates will point you in the right direction for the perfect alternative. Be sure to ask about professional installation as well, and why it is so important with this material.
