Hardwood is excellent for so many reasons

In addition to a longer lifespan and remarkable visual appeal, hardwood floors work in a variety of settings. Bedrooms, living rooms, hallways, and even kitchens can host these floors with remarkable results. Proper installation can provide durability that lasts for many years and when wear and tear does begin to show, you can have these floors refinished. The refinishing process strips away the old, used surface, bringing you to a brand new layer of wood that provides another few decades of gorgeous appeal. But there some veryimportant facts to keep in mind when choosing hardwood flooring. One is that you can never install it in below-grade spaces such as basements. Wood does not react well in damp, humid spaces where temperature changes can fluctuate quickly. If you need floor covering for areas like this, be sure to ask about luxury vinyl flooring or engineered wood flooring. Either will work better in spaces such as these. You should also know that hardwood flooring must be acclimated prior to installation. This process can take between one and three days, depending on the amount of moisture in your home. Skipping this step can result in flooring that buckles, warps, cracks, or splits and in most cases, must promptly be replaced.
