Hardwood is cost-effective

Once you look at the big picture, you’ll see the price is very reasonable. For one, the flooring lasts for decades. We’ve even heard of some instances where it lasted up to 100 years.

It often looks better with age, but if it does look worn and scratched, usually a sanding and refinishing is all it needs. Unless there is structural damage, there’s no need for replacement.

It also never goes out of style and fits into any decor; if you need a change, just sand and stain another color.

Finally, hardwood floors add value to a home and, if you’re planning to sell, real estate agents tell us that homes with wood floors sell faster and easier.

There are two kinds of hardwood

There’s both solid and engineered wood flooring. The only difference is that engineered is constructed differently, with a slice of genuine wood on top and then several layers that combine authentic timber with resins.

The layers are placed in a crisscross position, which gives it more stability and an ability to handle water better than solid which, as you might know, can be damaged by excess water. That also gives it more versatility in installation, as it can be placed in some high moisture areas where solid cannot.

Both are easy maintenance and can be refinished.
