Hardwood facts you should know

The most important of all your hardwood flooring options is the specific wood species you choose. These species are rated according to softness and hardness, with some being very hard and some being very soft. Of course, the more active your household, the harder your wood species will need to be. This helps your floors live up to their expected lifespan without experience a great deal of unnecessary wear and tear.

With regard to daily wear, special finishes can go a long way in alleviating many of the signs of this. Hand scraped, for instance, or distressed can often mask scratches, scrapes, and scuffs, leaving your floors looking great longer.

At some point, however, wear will eventually become a factor. When it does, you can opt to have them refinished. This process strips away decades of abuse and wear, leaving you with a brand new start, with a new layer of wood to work with. If you prefer, you can even change your stain color and finish type during the refinishing procedure. This works well if you’re trying to match a new trend or even if you just want something a little different.

For the best-looking hardwood floors, and to make sure your warranty is never voided, make sure you take advantage of professional installation for this floor covering.
