How long will your hardwood flooring last?
As you start your journey toward the perfect hardwood flooring, you are sure to wonder, as many homeowners do, how long your chosen material will last. This product line is renowned for its long lifespan and today’s post works to give you a clearer understanding of the lifespan you can accomplish with the materials.
Wood flooring lifespans can vary
Solid hardwood flooring offers the most extended lifespan, with an average of 100 years, but it has been known to far exceed this. You can see the results of longer-lasting materials when you visit any historic building and find floors that are upwards of 200 years old.
Engineered wood floors can last for an average of 30 years with outstanding results, even in areas where solid wood cannot be installed. This natural wood material consists of a solid veneer of your species of choice on top of perpendicularly layered plywood, topped with a wear layer that adds extra durability and ease of maintenance.
Another factor that plays to the longevity of these materials is that they can be refinished several times throughout their lifespan. When you’re ready to find out even more about why these floors last so long, be sure to stop by and speak with a flooring professional at your convenience.
