Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular flooring choices among Americans. The natural characteristics of the wood add depth and visual appeal that other materials of flooring try to duplicate. The neutral color of most hardwood floors makes customizing rooms in your home easy and fun. Hardwood flooring is a very common choice among homeowners largely due to its aesthetic appeal and durability. Hardwood is also one of the most hypo-allergenic choices among flooring, since it doesn’t hide dust particles like carpeting can.
Another gleaming quality that hardwood flooring possesses is sustainability. Wood is a natural resource, making it a great ecological choice. It is also naturally durable, and if scratched or scuffed, in most cases it can simply be sanded to look like new. Hardwood flooring is one of the oldest flooring materials available, and it never goes out of style.
Hardwood Flooring Installation
The installation process varies depending on the type and size of wood. Fortunately, hardwood flooring often comes pre-finished, which removes a great deal of stress from the installation process. Pre-finish is applied to the wood in a factory, where the wood is sanded down multiple times, stained and finished with an oil topcoat or polyurethane. This makes installation easier and the wood itself more resilient. Learn more about the wood flooring installation process by speaking to one of our hardwood flooring installers.
