Hardwood floors are luxurious and timeless, a look that will never go out of style. Solid Hardwood floor is is milled from a real hardwood species, making it the sole material used in the making of this type of flooring. These floors have a natural beauty to them that cannot be understated. This type of flooring can come either finished or pre-finished. These floors are hard and very durable, which means they can last for years, increasing the value of your home.
This type of flooring however expands and contracts more than engineered wood during climate changes, especially during extremes in heat, cold or if exposed to humidity changes making it unsuitable for below-grade installations, and over radiant heating systems.
Solid Hardwood flooring tends to last for more than a lifetime if they are maintained well. While they might seem like a big investment initially, you don’t need to replace them every 10-20 years like other types of flooring so it will provide a good return on your investment.
