Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
- Hardwood floors are easier to keep clean and require less ongoing maintenance than carpeting. Pet hair and dander can be easily removed from a hardwood floor, unlike carpet.
- Hardwood can be used in rustic or modern designs. Hardwood’s variety of finishes and assortments provide styling flexibility.
- Pre-finished hardwood floors come with a protective finish that requires very little maintenance. Pre-finished hardwoods are ready for use immediately after installation. Simple sweeping and an occasional light mopping are all that is needed to keep your hardwood floors looking great for years to come.
Hardwood floors are available in different constructions, which determine the type of sub-floor it can be installed over. Consider what type of sub-floor you have and what level of the house you wish to install hardwood before deciding on an appropriate choice.
For example, moisture can be a factor, as variations in moisture can lead to gapping and warping. Installing hardwood in full bathrooms is not recommended because of the fluctuating moisture levels. Follow manufacturer recommendations relating to moisture before selecting and installing hardwood. For more protection against moisture, use a moisture barrier.
Generally, hardwood can be installed over concrete sub-floors at ground level or plywood sub-floors at ground level or higher.
