And if you want to learn more about Hardwood floors, then feel free to read below…
There are two main types of hardwood flooring: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood floor planks are made from natural wood and milled from a single source. Due to the moisture and temperature fluctuations of solid hardwood flooring, most boards cannot be made more than 5″ wide and 3/4″ thick. Solid hardwood boards can be cut into one of three styles — flat-sawn, quarter-sawn or rift-sawn. Solid hardwood floorboards should not be installed directly over concrete, but they work well in a variety of other flooring situations.
Engineered wood flooring still contains real wood, but it is composed of two or more layers of wood adhered together to form a plank. The top layer, or lamella, is what you see on your hardwood floor. The core layers, or substrate, provide the planks with stability. Engineered hardwood flooring is not to be confused with laminate, vinyl and veneer floors. These floors are imitations of hardwood flooring, but engineered wood floors and solid hardwood flooring are the real thing.
Natick customers love hardwood flooring because it’s easier to clean and maintain than carpeting — no more light-colored carpets spotted with food, wine and dirt stains. In order to give it a long life, however, you do need to do some maintenance on your hardwood flooring. Natick has great resources for finishes, cleaners and other maintenance options for hardwood flooring.
Hardwood floors are popular enough that simply adding them to your house can increase your home’s market value. They are also easy to clean, and resist the build-up of pollen, dust and other allergens. Hardwood floors come in a variety of colors ranging from blond to reddish to deep chocolate tones. Blond woods like white oak make a room appear brighter. Deeper tones have a warmer, more vintage feel. In addition to choosing the color of the finish, you will need to decide which sort of wood is a good choice for your home. Softer woods like pine can dent more easily, which can lead to a distressed look that some people find desirable, but others dislike. Harder woods such as oak are more resilient, and are better choices for people with active families and rooms that see a lot of traffic. You can also choose floor boards in a wide range of widths, for a large array of different looks. It’s important to keep in mind that hardwood floors will periodically require re-staining and repair of scratches and dents. They are also not a good choice for any room that will be exposed to excessive moisture, or where the floors will become wet. However, if these limitations are not an issue for you, hardwood floors can give your home a rich, classic look.
