Benefits and options of flooring

In addition to one of the longest lifespans in the flooring industry, hardwood has a lot more to offer. Stability is a sure thing, especially when a proper installation has taken place. It’s durable as well, and stands up to everyday wear and tear in a way that will leave you thankful you went with wood floors.

One of the most important factors in reaching the expected lifespan in this flooring is choosing the proper species. Rated from very hard to very soft, the harder the species, of course, the more wear and tear it can withstand before showing any signs of it. In addition to the species suited for your home’s activity levels, you can also speak with your flooring professional about protective measures such as special coatings or a protective top coat.

It should always be understood that solid hardwood flooring is never a candidate for below grade installation. Humidity, moisture, and changes in temperature can cause this material to warp, buckle, split, and crack. The result will be the necessity for replacement flooring in a relatively short period of time.

If you strive for continuity in your flooring, and you have below grade spaces to floor, consider using engineered wood floors as an alternative to solid. These are still real hardwood, placed between a sturdy backing layer, and a protective top layer, and it can even be refinished at least once before needing to be replaced.
