Hardwood floors are the most popular flooring for residential use because of it’s beauty and durability. Wood floors are available in many styles, wood species, design, finish and installation method. All hardwood floors require routine cleaning and maintenance as well as sanding and refinishing at some point in time. Typical low cost, maintenance free hardwood floors are prefinished engineered with a click, floating or glue down installation method. Engineered hardwood floors have less hardwood and wear surface making them cheaper but also do not last as long as solid hardwood floors. Solid hardwood floors are available unfinished or prefinished in hundreds of exotic and domestic wood species. The most common residential materials are red and white oak, maple, walnut, hickory and cherry. Common exotic hardwood floors are bamboo, Brazilian cherry, cumaru, and santos mahogany.
All wood floors are beautiful if installed and cared for properly. Some will perform and last longer than others. The material you choose will look great for decades if the hardwood floor installation company listens to your needs and prides itself on customer satisfaction. Wood materials are selected with three main goals in mind. Personal preference to fit your design requirements, best wood species for the type of use and best material for the environmental conditions (temperature and humidity).
The most important factor in creating a beautiful hardwood floor installation is the installer that you choose. Hardwood floor installations are complex – they require a company with experience, customer focused employees and the right tools to create a beautiful end product. It requires a company experienced in selecting the right wood species, construction method and finish for the conditions of the building. It requires a company that you can count on to finish the job right the first time and be there for you years from now to help you keep your floor looking brand new.
