Hardwood isn’t just a floor covering

When someone has hardwood flooring installed in their home, they are installing so much more than just a floor covering. With the longest lifespan of just about any other flooring, it’s likely to be the last floor you have installed. This means it can be passed on to future generations who, with proper care and maintenance, will enjoy it for many more years as well.
On the other hand, if you know in advance that you will be selling your home, these floors will still be an asset to you. Studies have shown that homes with solid wood floors bring more on the market than homes with other floor coverings do. So, you’re likely to get back what you budgeted for these floors in the first place. An investment in the future is never a bad choice.

In the meantime, you’ll have some other decisions to make including which species of wood to choose. Some species, such as oak, are much harder than others are, and they stand up better to high levels of traffic. They also do a better job of resisting scratches and scuffs that are sure to happen over time. Softer woods are fine for areas that experience lower traffic levels, such as bedrooms or libraries, and they can be further protected by area rugs and runners. No matter what options you choose, you’ll definitely want to have these floors installed by a professional. Not only does the job require specialized tools, but a great deal of experience as well.
