Nothing can beat the natural beauty of hardwood flooring.
Benefits of Hardwood Floors
Hardwood flooring is revered for its ability to stand up to heavy amounts of traffic for years while maintaining its structural integrity and beautiful appearance. Hardwood has been used in homes for generations and is appreciated for the traditional appearance that it can provide in a home. A traditional appearance isn’t all that a hardwood floor can provide, as hardwood is available with many different visual options, allowing it to be used in contemporary designs. Boards may come in varying widths, with wider boards of up to 7” wide meant to represent a more traditional appearance and thinner boards as small as 2” wide meant to take on more of a modern look.
Hardwood’s finished surface provides the floor with protection against stains, dirt, dust, and allergens. Small particles that can get trapped in a carpet’s fibers are repelled by hardwood’s urethane finish, making them easier to clean and maintain. A hardwood floor only requires regular sweeping and the occasional mopping or vacuuming to protect it from damage against dirt particles.
Hardwood can also become a wise long-term investment. Hardwood does not conduct heat which makes it a great natural insulator, allowing you to save money in the long run when you are paying those heat and air conditioning bills. Combined with its extreme durability and longevity, hardwood has the ability to be refinished, essentially doubling the life of the floor every time it is refinished and saving you the cost of replacing the floor entirely. Installing a hardwood floor will also add to your home’s resale value, making it a very cost-effective addition.
