the benefits of hardwood


When you're looking into installing a hardwood floor, you have a couple of options to choose from when it comes to the finish of the wood.

Prefinished hardwood flooring is already sanded and sealed when it comes from the factory. It is a type of wood floor that has been finished before it is installed. This type of flooring is installed more easily and quickly than unfinished wood floors. This makes for a quick installation process with no staining or varnishing. Also, the floor will be ready to walk on as soon as it’s put down. It’s usually a bit cheaper than unfinished when you compare the two. It is also more affordable and can be refinished without having to remove it for sanding and refinishing.

Unfinished requires multiple coats of protective varnish that have to dry over a period of time. However, it’s the best option if you’re trying to match a specific color in another area of the commercial or residential space. Unfinished hardwoods come in many different colors and styles which makes them perfect for any home design style or preference. You have more options for customizing your solid hardwood floors if you choose to go the unfinished route.


Oak is a very popular type of hardwood because it has a traditional look and is easy to maintain. It also has a very durable finish that can withstand scratches, spills, and dents. Many people choose to use oak because it can provide a traditional look, durability and resistance to scratches.


Bamboo is an eco-friendly option that is durable and beautiful in its own right. It is more expensive than other options but does not require any special care or maintenance once installed.


Cherry hardwood flooring is a type of wood that has many benefits for homeowners. It is durable, attractive, and easy to maintain. The word cherry refers to the color of the wood. The most common type of cherry hardwood flooring is a reddish brown color. 


As far as lumber goes, hickory is one of the most durable wood flooring choices available. It requires minimal maintenance, it’s one of the more water-resistant wood flooring options, and it has a super-unique look and charm.  It’s the perfect option for those that want some character added to their flooring.


Maple hardwood flooring is one of the most popular types of flooring. It has a natural look that gives your home a rustic feel. This type of wood is harder than other types and it can last for decades if it is cared for properly.


Tiger hardwood flooring is a type of hardwood flooring that has a distinctive, natural look. These types of floors are often found in homes in the tropics and they are popular because they offer an exotic and unique look. The tiger wood can be found in many different colors, but it is most often seen as a light brown color with streaks of dark brown.

There are several installation methods for installing hardwood flooring.  Some of the most common ones include floating flooring and gluing down.  Floating flooring is the fastest and easiest way to install hardwood floors. Floating is the most popular installation method for new projects. It is also the easiest to lay a pattern without any seams or gaps in the wood. The planks are held together either by their shape or some adhesive. 

The second installation method involves the new wood flooring being glued directly to the subfloor with a strong adhesive. Glue down installations can be done by anyone but they take more time because you have to wait for the glue to dry between each step of installation. This installation method is better for high traffic areas as the result is a more stable flooring.
