The truth is, hardwood flooring is likely tobe your last flooring installation. When most people consider solid wood floors, this is one of the most important aspects. One of the things that makes that life span possible,is the fact that this flooring can be refinished several times. When most homeowners are noticing the effects of years of wear and tear and considering a new floor covering, you’ll just be getting started on your first refinishing project. After that, you’ll be good to go for another few decades, with floors that look like brand new, all over again.
With hardwood flooring, you’ll have many options from which to choose. You can pick the wood species, for instance, that best suits the average traffic flow for the room it’s being installed in. Of course, the heavier the traffic, the harder your species should be, and your flooring specialist will help you choose the perfect one for your needs.
In addition to species, you’ll also be able to choose the perfect stain color for your home’s décor scheme. From clear coats that compliment natural wood colorations such as those found in cherry, to deep, dark stains that create a timeless appeal, the sky is the limit.
Finally, you’ll also have your choice of finishes, for the perfect final touch. Whether you choose classic gloss, vintage, distressed or hand scraped, you’re sure to be pleased with the result.
