Those who dislike shopping for a new floor covering should certainly take the time to consider hardwood flooring
. With one of the longest lifespans in the flooring industry, this could be the last flooring purchase you make for as long as you own your home.
The durability and functionality of this floor covering make it extremely valuable for most every homeowner. What's more, it offers a classic appearance that keeps you current and matches your existing décor with ease. Let's find out how we can truly make this your floor covering with personalization options and more.
Choosing hardwood flooring for your home means that you'll not only be able to take advantage of all the benefits this material has to offer, but you can also personalize the appearance and benefits to your specific requirements. For instance, choosing a wood species will cater to both your traffic level as well as appearance needs. Some species are far harder than others and will be more durable as a result.
You can also choose a sealant that adds even more protection and durability, allowing your floors to resist scratches, scuffs, stains, and water spots much longer than untreated flooring. From there, adding a stain color gives beauty and depth to your floors. Be sure to ask about the differences between pre treated and untreated material options, as one is likely to be better for your needs than the other.
Choosing a finish type can be beneficial to both aesthetically and functionally. Finishes such as hand-scraped, distressed, and wire brushed offer stunning visuals but also work to hide a variety of daily wear, leaving you with better-looking floors and often extending the lifespan of the wood. Be sure to also ask about how the refinishing process works when you visit our hardwood flooring store.
