When you need a floor covering that goes the distance, hardwood flooring is not a bad choice. With a life expectancy of roughly 100 years with proper care and maintenance, you can afford to spend a little extra up front. After all, you're not likely to ever need to replace this flooring.
Instead of replacing your floors, you can have your floors refinished. This will make them look just like brand new. During the process, old layers that are worn, dingy, stained, or damaged, are stripped away and replaced with a brand new stain and finish. It's important to know that certain finishes can hide some of the lesser signs of wear. These include wire-brushed, hand scraped, distressed, and vintage. Still, others choose the high-gloss finish for the most elegant look of all.
When choosing hardwood floors for your home, it's important to know a couple of key factors about the material. The first is that it can never be installed in below-ground spaces such as basements or basement rooms. The second is that it must be acclimated before installation. Acclimation assures that your flooring is less likely to buckle, warp, or crack after installation.
