Hardwood flooring facts you'll love

Hardwood flooring is easily one of the most sought-after floor coverings on the market because it offers extensive benefits that fit every household. With professional installation and regular care, wood floors can last more than 100 years, saving money over time. If you're considering this flooring line for your remodel, here is some information that will help you make a great decision.

What are the different types of hardwood flooring?

Solid hardwood is a common flooring type in this product line, with outstanding visuals and impressive durability. They also offer the most extended lifespan, at more than 100 years, while engineered wood flooring can last for 30 years. In addition, engineered products have a backing made of layers of plywood with a veneer of natural hardwood, so they stand up better in areas with humidity and temperature changes.

Solid hardwood flooring provides the most benefits for some homeowners and business owners, but others enjoy the options that come with engineered materials. It's essential to consider your specific requirements, so you can search for those characteristics in the products you want and need. This method saves a lot of time during the shopping part of your remodel.

Site or pre-finished wood floors?

Pre-finished wood floors offer different benefits than site-finished materials and could be a choice that will serve your needs best. These products have the stain color, sealant, and finish added in the factory, so your installation team doesn't have to add them to your home. The benefits include a faster installation time, and more robust durability, though your stain color options may be fewer than what's available with site-finished hardwood.
