When hardwood flooring is the best option

Hardwood floors offer characteristics no other flooring can, and that’s one of the reasons so many materials attempt to mimic this amazing look. There is an undeniable elegance found in this material that is both classic and timeless. It rises above and beyond trends to offer something that easily lasts a lifetime and beyond. In both aesthetics and durability, you’ll be hard pressed to find an equal for this all-encompassing floor covering. It could be the very material you’ve been waiting for and truly deserve.

Hardwood options make it more beneficial

When you choose hardwood flooring for your home, you are actually embarking on a bit of a decision-making journey. You still need to make several choices that will affect your flooring and help it reach its expected lifespan. One of those choices is a proper wood species. Since species are rated from soft to hard, you’ll need to choose the one hard enough to meet your needs. For instance, the busier your home, the harder that species will need to be. Inside closets would be a proper placement for softer woods.

You should know, before embarking on your journey to hardwood flooring, that this material can never be installed below grade. That means basements are off-limits, or any basement rooms. If you have spaces like this that need flooring, and you have wood floors throughout the rest of your home, our associates can direct you to an excellent alternative and still manage to keep that classic look at the same time.

These floors must also be given ample time to acclimate to your specific environment. This time period can last from 24 to 72 hours or so and is entirely necessary. Without it, your brand new hardwood floors could crack, warp, or buckle, so make sure this step is never skipped.
