Love is a splendor type thing. As it turns out, so is solid wood flooring. While there are many things we could say about hardwood flooring, we have narrowed it down to three that we feel very strongly about. And we hope you do too!

  • Differing Species: Solid wood comes in a large variety of species such as oak, cherry, hickory, birch, bamboo and many more. Some species are domestic, hailing from the United States, and some are exotic, coming from areas all over the world. Each species has its own unique characteristics meaning you will probably prefer one or two over all the rest.
  • Long Life Span: If you are looking into having solid hardwood floors installed in your home, it will likely be the last flooring ever to be put down. The fact is, with proper care and maintenance, solid hardwood floors can last for many decades. Some hardwood floors have been known to last a hundred years or more.
  • Refinishing Options: One of the main reasons that solid hardwood lasts so long is that it can easily be refinished. Depending on the thickness of the wood, this can be done seven or eight times before the need for replacement comes up (which probably won’t happen while you own your home). Proper maintenance is the key to a long life span, but refinishing them can give them back a like-new appearance.
