THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT HARDWOOD FLOORING

HARDWOOD FLOORING AND ITS MANY FACES
If you have never heard of the importance of picking the best wood species for your new hardwood floors, we want to make sure you hear it from us. Species plays a huge role in helping your flooring make it to its expected lifespan and fend off as much wear and tear as possible. The more active your household, the harder that species will need to be, while areas that aren’t as busy can get by with something softer. Your flooring specialist will help make sure you get exactly what you need in this area.
Another important choice is the style of finish you have applied once the installation is done. Many homeowners are used to seeing one of the most common finishes, the high-gloss, on many hardwood floors. It’s an excellent choice, and certainly looks magazine-perfect once completed. However, it also shows more wear than any other finish. Choosing something like wire-brushed, hand scraped or distressed can help hide scratches, scuffs, and even gouges, and looks better longer.
Our flooring professionals will discuss these, and many more aspects of your hardwood flooring, in much greater detail when you visit us in person.
