When only hardwood flooring
will do for your new construction or remodeling project, you'll find yourself with more options than you might have thought you'd have. The same is true for the benefits. You can choose from a variety of characteristics and options to get the precise look and feel you want from your floors. At the same time, they'll offer you plenty of benefits that really make all the hard work of shopping around really worthwhile. Additionally, these floors give you at least 100 years, when properly cared for and maintained. So you'll have plenty of time to love them.

Hardwood flooring gives you the option to select the wood species that best suits your specific needs. For instance, if your house is heavily trafficked, you'll want to choose a species that is very hard, such as cherry or oak. In resisting much of the wear experienced on any given day, it also adds to the longevity of the material overall, so your floors last longer. Some species even have their own natural colorations so that you'll only need to clear coat the wood instead of staining it.
After picking the perfect species, you can move on to a stain color and finish type. Together, they give your floors a nicely finished look that will match any decor. The good news is, both can be changed during a refinishing project if you feel like you're ready for something new.
It's important to remember that hardwood flooring must be given ample time to acclimate to your home's environment. The process can take from one to three days and must be carried out inside your home in an area where the HVAC system has been running for at least two days prior.
