What you should know about hardwood flooring

If you’re considering hardwood flooring for your next project, there are some critical pieces of information you won’t want to start without. For instance, understanding the options such as species selection, sealant, staining, and finishing can make a massive difference in the outcome of your space. The result will be an elegant and timeless addition to any room, with the benefits you'll enjoy for years.

With a lifespan of more than 100 years, you’re not likely to ever have to remove and replace these floors. Instead, you’ll be able to refinish them, time and again, for floors that look like new. Let’s find out a few more in-depth details now.

What kind of hardwood flooring is right for you?

You have a lot more options in hardwood flooring than you might think. Solid hardwood is a common choice when these floors are considered, which is a flooring that is solid wood, through and through. You can choose a variety of options that will result in the perfect look and functionality for any space.

Species choice is a crucial factor, and probably the first choice you will make. Some are much harder than others, such as Oak and Cherry, and will provide an exceptionally durable surface for your busy home. Choosing a sealant that works for your household is also important and can work in tandem with your selected species.
Stain color options vary, depending on whether you’ve picked prefinished or unfinished materials. With prefinished wood, you get a select number of colors to choose from and a quick installation frame.Unfinished materials, also known as site-finished, because they are finished after the actual installation, offer far more color options, but a longer and more tedious installation period. When you’re ready to get started on your flooring project, we’ll share even more information about these excellent materials.
