Many floor coverings attempt to mimic the look
of solid hardwood flooring, but nothing can truly compare to the real thing.
With a stunning elegance that is replicated over and over, it also has an
undeniable lifespan. Many of these floors, installed in older homes, are still
usable after more than 100 years, and some nearing the age of 200 years. This
is a great snapshot of what’s possible with your own flooring. Its durability
is one of the main reasons it lasts so long, but it can also be refinished when
wear starts to show. Together, this means you’ll definitely get your money’s
worth from this material.

In hardwood flooring, you actually get more choices than
you might think. The first, and likely most important, is the particular
species of wood you want and need. The determining factor in your final choice
will be the traffic levels and activity inside your home, and more
specifically, the rooms where this new flooring will be installed. Soft woods
are not suited for extremely busy locations and will lead to the premature
breakdown of your flooring. A good rule of thumb is, the more active your home,
the harder the wood species should be.
Stain color and finishes can also be chosen at your
discretion as well and can work to create a great match for your existing
decor. Stains range from clear to ebony black, and everything in between,
giving you exactly the look you want in each area of your home. The finish you
choose not only adds to the elegance of the room but can even help reduce the
amount of wear that shows atop your flooring. Hand scraped and wire brushed,
for instance, can hide scratches, scuffs, dirt, and debris, leaving you with
better looking floors longer.
