Hardwood flooring 101

With the summer remodeling season in full swing, a lot of people who have never remodeled their floors are getting out for the first time, and navigating the choppy waters of choosing their new floors. One of the biggest things to consider is the material type, and the learning curve can be pretty steep for the uninitiated.

If you find yourself in the position described above, you could probably use a little solid info to work with. So, we put together this quick guide to the basic things everyone should know about one of the most popular flooring materials out there: Hardwood flooring!

Here's what you need to know!

It's super-easy to maintain
Flooring manufacturers have gone a long way to cultivate an aura of chic mystique around hardwood flooring, that has caused many to start to think it is somehow harder to maintain than other flooring materials. This couldn't be further from the truth!

Aside from having to protect it from excess moisture, you really just have to keep it well-swept to maintain it. It's seriously that easy!

It saves you money in the long run
When you buy a good, high-quality hardwood floor, it's kind of liking buying your next three or four floors at the same time! That might sound weird, but it's true. The secret lies in the fact that hardwood floors can be refinished a number of times throughout their service life. The refinishing process leaves your hardwood floors literally looking like new, and even affords you the opportunity to switch up their color each time they are refinished! It's basically like getting new floors at a fraction of the cost. Not bad!

They just look great!
Whether you are looking for chic elegance, rustic charm, or anything in between, hardwood flooring has something to offer! There are few materials more versatile and generally beautiful than hardwood flooring. This simple fact is the reason why hardwood is widely considered to be the king of flooring!
