Solid hardwood flooring
is, hands down, one of the most sought-after floor coverings on the market today. The reasons are simple. They not only provide one of the most gorgeous appearances possible, but they offer a lifespan that can reach 100 years with proper care and maintenance. Some floors last even longer, which only adds to the value of your home over time. They’re also incredibly durable, especially when care has been given to selecting the proper characteristics, and maintenance is never harsh or hard to bear.

Every hardwood flooring purchase starts out by figuring out what your exact needs are with regard to average traffic and general lifestyle. Since picking a species is the first step in your new flooring, it’s important to find one that matches the activity level in your home. Some species are very soft and they range all the way to very hard, with harder species being more appropriate for busier homes. This decision directly affects the overall lifespan of your flooring, so it’s important to choose the right materials.
Just as important, especially to you as a homeowner, are the choices of stain color and type of finish. With an extensive variety of stain colors, you’ll be able to find the one that best matches your furnishings and stands up well under the lighting you have in each room. These options range from clear coats, which are great for the natural hues found in cherry and walnut, to stains so dark they are nearly black. With regard to finishes, it’s important to know that some help to alleviate signs of wear and tear. For this purpose, you can choose wire-brushed, vintage, or distressed, to name a few.
Make sure you speak with your flooring specialist about the necessity for professional installation when it comes to your wood floors.
