Benefits of Hardwood
One major benefit of hardwood is that it adds real estate value to your home. It also offers noise reduction that tile or stone flooring cannot. There is almost a limitless selection of styles, colors and more to choose from. Stay in trend with rustic, hand-scraped looks, or go more traditional with warmer hardwood floors like oak. It also adds a warm atmosphere to your home and can transform a room into a warm and inviting gathering space.
Durability of Hardwood
Several different types of hardwood flooring can be refinished to stay looking good as new for years to come. Hardwood flooring can be relatively low maintenance when properly taken care of. Remember to sweep up dust and dirt as to not scratch the surface and to clean up spills and accidents right away as to not leave stains.
Solid vs Engineered Hardwood
Solid hardwood features a simple construction and is one solid piece of wood. The thickness of the plank can vary depending on the manufacturer or type of wood used. Solid hardwood performs best when installed above or on grade, and can even be sanded and refinished in order to extend its lifetime in your home. Engineered hardwood planks are made of multiple real wood veneers that are layered with the grains running in different directions in order to increase stability. They can also resist the natural tendency of wood to expand and contract due to changes in moisture. They best perform installed above, on and below grade so you can enjoy them on every level of your home, and they can also be refinished.
Where can Hardwood be Installed?
Hardwood is appropriate for home settings such as bedrooms and living rooms. There are even hardwood options that can handle moderately trafficked areas like hallways and stairs, and some engineered options can be installed in finished basements. Hardwood flooring is an incredibly popular and timeless flooring option, but it isn't the best choice for all settings. In fact, it isn't suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas with moisture
