Why hardwood floors are an excellent choice for your home

There are many reasons to choose hardwood flooring for your home, so where do we start in sharing more information with you? There is the amazing elegance it offers, as timeless as the resource itself. There’s also the impressive lifespan, the durability, and the options that go along with the install. In truth, there is much more to tell about this floor covering than we have time for here.

Getting started with hardwood flooring

One of the first things you will be asked about as you pursue a hardwood flooring for your home is your current and expected levels of foot traffic. You will also be asked if you have pets or children in the home, or if you have an active lifestyle. These are all tailored to help you choose the perfect species for your particular needs. Harder species are excellent for busy households with lots of traffic, while softer woods are suited for areas that have little to no traffic.

At some point, the effects of everyday wear and tear will start to show, however, no matter how hard the species you choose. This happens after a few decades, but the good news is, you can simply have your floors refinished, bringing them back to a like new finish all over again.

During the refinishing process, the old, damaged layer is stripped away, along with the stain color and finish you chose when your floors were installed. In addition to creating a brand new surface, you are also at liberty to choose a different stain color and finish type during the refinishing project.

Trends can easily change in the amount of time it takes to necessitate refinishing your floors, and a change of color could be just the thing to make you feel like you’ve had a whole new floor covering installed.
