Hardwood choices and benefits

With hardwood flooring, you have many more opportunities to personalize your floors than you might think. The process starts by selecting a woodspecies which, in itself, has great character in the graining patterns and natural colors. Since species are rated from soft to hard, you’ll want to make sure you have something that will match the activity and traffic levels that are normal for your home. This helps your flooring to reach its expected lifespan with ease, as it does what it was intended to do.

You can also choose a beautiful finish for your hardwood floors, with one of the most common being the classic high-gloss finish. However, there are plenty of others, including wire-brushed, hand scraped, vintage, and distressed which can help to reduce signs of wear and aging. Scratches and scuffs will be hidden into these finishes and rarely noticed by you or your guests, leaving you with better-looking floors longer.

Hardwood flooring should only be installed on or above grade and never in spaces such as basements, which are below grade. They must also be allowed to acclimate to your specific environment for 24 to 72 hours before they are installed. This helps eliminate the possibility of warping, buckling, or cracking and leaves you with a floor that looks as good as it was meant to look.
