hardwood flooring

Choosing hardwood from the vast majority of flooring

There are lots of flooring types to choose from, so why choose hardwood? The reasons behind a preference for this flooring type vary greatly from homeowner to homeowner. Some prefer the stylish and classic look that the material provides, while others love the incredibly long lifespan.

Your reasons might be a combination of the two or something different altogether. But the important thing is that the reason is yours. If you haven’t yet made up your mind, allow us to give you some important information that could be just what you need to hear.

Wood floors offer nearly everything

If appearance is a selling point for you, you’ll have plenty to choose from in the hardwood flooring line. There are tons of species varieties, as well as personalization options like stain color and finish type, to help you create a truly unique look.

Some of the available finish types, such as wire-brushed or hand-scraped, often do more than one job. In addition to beautifully matching the elegance already in place in your home, it can also work to hide scratches, scuffs, and other signs of daily wear.

Solid wood flooring can never be placed in below-ground spaces such as basements. However, if this is an area you need to be floored, be sure to ask about our engineered flooring options. Perfect for spaces like these, you'll still get the elegance and lifespan you desire with all the protection and benefits that are important to you.

Both types of hardwood flooring require acclimation to your specific environment. Feel free to ask an associate about the details.
