What types of woods are available in flooring?

Monday, September 20, 2021 10:20 AM

We know you have plenty of questions when it comes to choosing the perfect wood flooring. In today's post, we will briefly address some of the wood types available to you and how you can benefit from them.

Solid hardwood flooring is a beautiful option

If the most extended lifespan in wood floor products is essential to you, solid hardwood flooring could be your best option. With professional installation and regular maintenance as required, these floors will easily last 100 years or more.

They offer a through-and-through wood construction that makes them stable and highly durable, especially if properly sealed and finished. To add extra protection, especially in your busiest areas, you can utilize area rugs and runners with exceptional results.

There are many types of wood to choose from, with species options that range from soft to hard, to help you cater to your in-house traffic levels. For instance, oak is a commonly preferred species for most homes, offering a durable hardness that wears well, accepts stains readily, and lasts a long time.

You can also choose between solid and engineered flooring or choose finished or unfinished. Each option adds plenty of benefits that could serve you well, and you can find out more about them when you visit us today.
