Hardwood details that are important

We want to start off by saying that solid hardwood flooring installation should never be attempted on a DIY level. While some materials are easier than other to install, this one takes a great deal of experience as well as many specialty tools that will cost far more than the professional installation itself. Our staff will happy to discuss this in further detail during your visit.

It’s also important to know that solid wood floors should never be installed in below-grade spaces such as basements. For rooms like this, engineered wood flooring is an excellent alternative, while still being classified as real wood. It helps maintain the continuity of the look you desire while affording many more protections and benefits at the same time.

Once installed, you’re not likely to ever need another flooring installation for as long as you own your home. Hardwood features a life span of 100 years on average, and even more with proper care and maintenance. It also adds great value to your home as well. If you ever sell your home, you’ll see a higher final sale price, as home buyers also know the benefits of a home with wood floors in place. On the other hand, passing your home down to another family member can leave them never needing to install another flooring either.
