Hardwood Flooring is Beautiful.

For homeowners desiring beautiful flooring, you can’t do much better than hardwood floors. If your home has a rustic feel, we recommend distressed hardwood, antique hardwood, or even hand scraped hardwood flooring. Do you have light colored cabinets or furniture? Consider installing dark hardwood or black hardwood floors for a brilliant complement.   Light toned hardwood floors are also very prevalent, with species like oak, maple, ash, and hickory among the most popular.

Hardwood Flooring is Incredibly Durable.

Hardwood flooring is known for outlasting generations of homeowners. You don’t have to search too hard to find homes from the 1800s with their original hardwood flooring. That’s because wood lasts a long time and imperfections contribute to the overall character of a hardwood floor. The durability of a wood floor can actually vary depending on the species. Refer to the Janka hardness test for more specific information on the hardness of wood species.

Wood Floors are Easy to Maintain.

Have you ever had a major spill on a carpet? You likely needed to rent a carpet cleaner to eliminate the stain. That’s not a frequent problem with wood floors, where a quick towel swipe can remove most spills and stains. Hardwood floors are also great for homes with pets because hairballs are easily picked up with a broom or Swiffer.
