At Hill City Carpet & Flooring, we're well aware of how much fun it can be to choose a new hardwood floor. But, sometimes, there are a lot of tough decisions to be made. Where should you turn? Who can you trust? Let us, the Hill City Carpet & Flooring pros, set you in the right direction and provide you with excellent, honest hardwood flooring advice.
Since hardwood floor slats are thick and solid, you can re-sand and re-varnish
them again and again... and again! They're solid hardwood, so you know you're getting 100% wood in every slat you buy, and that makes for genuinely resilient floors. The best part is that if your floors become damaged or outdated
, it's quite simple to redo them.
As with solid hardwood, engineered floors are also wood through and through, and have a central plywood core with a veneer topcoat. So, go ahead and install it in your bathroom, basement, or boudoir since it's equally as durable and versatile as its solid wood sibling.
The different species of hardwood
As there are heaps of options when it comes to wood species, you'll need to narrow your search and select your favorite one. As you can imagine, every type of wood species has a unique graining, appearance, level of hardness, and degree of durability. Should you be considering the renovation of a busy locale such as an entrance, den, or hallway, then you'll need to opt for more substantial, sturdier types of wood like oak, ash, or maple.
The distinctive coloration of hardwood
Typically, folks want to pick their favorite flooring color. However, since there are so many shades, tones, and variations of hardwood available, homeowners often see it as a daunting task. But, with our expert knowledge, we can help you make the right decision.
The various hardwood finishes
Modern technology allows for hardwood flooring to have an ultra-resilient, premium-grade urethane finish. This finish is what keeps those floors looking perfect, all while enduring an enormous amount of foot-traffic and maintaining a glorious sheen. A quality finish also helps your hardwood remain lustrous, vastly reducing the need for waxing, buffing, or refinishing.
