Another benefit that makes hardwood a great option is the ability to have it refinished rather than replaced. When most floorings show great amounts of wear and tear including scratches, dings, gouges and more, they usually have to be replaced. With wood flooring, however, all you need to do it call us. After the refinishing process, your floors will look just like brand new again.
When choosing the species of wood for your floors, it’s important to keep in mind the expected traffic flow in your home. In most cases, the higher the traffic amount, the harder and denser the species should be. Oak would be a great domestic species for high traffic areas such as living room and kitchens. On the other hand, you would probably get away with softer woods for your bedroom or study.
Keep in mind, solid hardwood should never be placed in the basement.
