If you’ve noticed, hardwood flooring
is one of the most sought-after floor coverings of our time. It has been that way for years and the trends look like it’s going to stay that way for a while to come. And there are plenty of good reasons for that.
This floor covering not only provides an answer for most décor matches but also for durability and an excellent lifespan as well. With so many great characteristics in one material, it’s hard to pass up, no matter how large or small your flooring project.
When you choose hardwood floors as your primary floor covering, that’s only the beginning of your option selections. From there, you’ll move on to choosing the perfect wood species, which caters to your specific lifestyle and traffic levels, sealant and stain color, which help protect and match décor and color schemes, and a perfect finish, which can even work to hide signs of aging and wear.
It’s important to note that this is not the floor covering you’re looking for if your home is below grade. For spaces like this, you'll need a material that fares well under the duress of humidity, dampness, and temperature changes. You must also allow these materials ample time to acclimate, before installation, for the best results.
