Hardwood basics and benefits

Hardwood floors have many benefits that homeowners find perfect for their busy lifestyles. For instance, the durability, which is primarily dependent upon the chosen wood species, is exceptional, even in homes with numerous guests, pets, or children. Species are rated from soft to hard, so the busier and more traffic you have in your home on a regular basis, the harder wood species you should choose. Many homeowners select oak or cherry, as these are durable enough for nearly any residential activity.

When considering hardwood flooring for your home, it’s important to keep a couple of facts in mind from the start. First, solid wood floors can never be placed below grade. An example of this type of space would be your basement and is never a good placement for these floors. Second, this material will need time to acclimate to your specific environment before installation. This process normally takes between 24 and 72 hours, depending on the humidity levels in the space where the installation is to begin.

Hardwood is the time-tested classic flooring option. Lately, hardwood flooring has been trending up in modern and traditional designs. Recent advances to the finishes of wood have given them very custom looks in a durable pre-finish. Looks of hand scraping and wire brushing add texture to the surface. These textures hide dents, dings, scratches, and gouges that are inherent hazards with a wood floor.

Our climate is very volatile in Iowa. With humidity ranging from high in the summer to low in the winter. This can cause some movement in the wood. Acclimation and proper installation make all of the difference with wood floors. There is plenty to discuss at a consultation for a wood floor.
