Hardwood reacts to moisture and extreme temperature changes, lightening or darkening with age and sun exposure, so it is one of the trickier types of flooring to install and is not recommended for bathrooms and laundry rooms. However, it is very durable and can create the overall feel that you might be looking for in your house.
Our flooring company understands there might be some downsides to getting natural hardwood floors and we are ready to give you other alternatives that meet your needs. For instance, one alternative is engineered wood can consist of anywhere from three to ten layers or plies that are glued together. One might be able to see why it tends to be more costly when comparing it to the four layers tile typically has. Engineered wood is meant to solve some of the issues like shrinking and expanding that might occur with completely natural wood. It also can be installed in basements.
There are so many different species of trees resulting in such variances as the pronounced grain of oak or clean look of maple. Tigerwood and Brazilian cherry are striking in appearance and extremely durable. The reason why so many people like hardwood floors is because each plank can be truly unique and meet your individual style or personality.
