Durability And Beauty: Hardwood Flooring

Posted in Solid / Hardwood Flooring by Source on October 3rd 2010
Hardwood floors are a beautiful feature in any home and are becoming more popular as they are becoming more affordable. With DIY being such an integral part to many home-owners’ lives, it may seem like the cheaper alternative of lock-in wood floors may be a bargain. However, when it comes to wood flooring you get what you pay for and if you want a floor that will last a lifetime, than you want to do it right the first time. So what makes solid hardwood flooring better than the cheaper alternatives out there? To start, these floors will look noticeably better and the quality is worth the investment. Solid wood is also more durable and with age this becomes an important aspect to consider. A sturdy floor that will last through many years of wear is preferable to having to replace a pre-existing floor, and with solid wood you will have the option of being able to sand down and re-finish the floor if you desire. Solid wood offers many unique and beautiful options for your wood floor preferences as well. Any reputable retailer will offer a selection of various woods in an array of colours to suit the style of your home. Many will also offer choice woods that have been treated or distressed; so if you are looking for a particular, rustic feel in your home, you don’t need to wait years for the wood to age, simply ask what options they offer for distressed or unfinished wood floors. It may also be worth considering engineered hardwood flooring.
