Your floors are so important to you that sometimes the only material worthy of their cover, is solid hardwood flooring. It’s not just a beautiful, timeless material, but also an investment in your future. In fact, it may be the last floor covering you ever have installed, thanks to its long lifespan.
It’s true that this is a material that requires care and specific types of maintenance, but it’s also true that it’s worth it. If you consider how many times a homeowner will replace their flooring over their lifetime, you’ll see why. While most floorings last an average of ten to thirty years, solid wood can last hundreds of years.

Wood floor installation is definitely something that is best left to a professional installer. Since there are so many things that can go wrong, it’s best to leave it in the hands of those far more experienced in this particular niche.
There are a few special notes that we should mention. If you are not already aware, hardwood flooring installation can take a few days, especially if you chose unfinished wood for your floors. To assure that the job is perfect, and that the stain is just right and cured to perfection, it may be necessary for you to go ahead and plan that short family getaway. It will give you a much needed break, and give the installers time to finish your floors to perfection.
In addition to being a beautiful addition to your home, wood floors are also a great choice, should you decide to sell your home. Homes that have them always bring more than those that do not, as homeowners always prefer this floor covering to just about anything else.
Another benefit well worth considering is the fact that solid wood floors can be refinished, several times in fact, over the course of their lifespan. Eventually, everyday wear and tear will take a toll, no matter how careful you’ve been. Refinishing will bring your floors back to the like-new look you love so much.
