Why choose hardwood?
Construction and Durability
The beautiful thing about solid hardwood flooring is that it’s very durable and can be refinished multiple times throughout the life of the floor. Unlike other flooring options, Hardwood is made up of one full piece of natural wood from top to bottom, which adds value and a vintage appeal to your home. Its durability is perfect for high traffic areas, and its clean, polished finish is sustainable at or above ground level. A typical solid hardwood plank is about 0.75 inches thick, however, it’s not uncommon to find planks of thicker or thinner variations. Despite its thickness, installing solid hardwood requires that each piece be nailed or stapled to wooden subflooring.
Style & Texture
Whether it be a traditional or a more casual look, the flooring style of a room contributes greatly to its liveliness. Choosing the right style of hardwood is a matter of preference dependent upon the homeowner’s individual taste and home design. Some wood species offer a modern look, while others are classic and traditional.
