What you really need to know about hardwood flooring

It isn’t every day you decide to install hardwood floors in your home. But now that you are considering the idea, we think there are some specific things you should know about the material, its benefits, and its installation. For instance, it’s important to note that it could be the last flooring you ever have installed in your home, due to its excessive lifespan. At the same time, it offers a variety of benefits you’ll find right at home in your own home. Even if you’re considering selling your home, wood floors will always bring a bigger bottom line when selling.

Hardwood options and benefits

Your lifestyle and activity level are the major factors on some of the options you have in hardwood flooring. Species selection is one of those choices. If you have a busy, active home, with lots of social activities, pets, and children, a very hard species is an important choice. This not only offers you the most durability for your specific needs, but it can help make the most of the floor’s lifespan. Softer woods, under the same circumstances, would quickly succumb to the effect of long term wear and tear.

A special finish, such as hand scraped, vintage, or distressed can also go a long way in battling the signs of wear and tear. Their texture patterns and overall look are meant to match subtle abuse signs like scratches, scuffs, and other minor dings. The finishes could even help to put more time between refinishing projects.

When it does come time to refinish your hardwood floors, it’s important to know that you can change your stain color or finish type at the same time. Whether you’re looking to match a current trend, or just want something a little different, a refinishing project is the perfect time to make those changes.
