Solid wood floors have been used for centuries and will never loose their charm and warmth. Solid hardwood flooring starts as a solid piece of hardwood and is milled into wood planks that are generally ¾” thick. Next the tongue and groove is added and finished according to whether the flooring will be unfinished or pre-finished. Because solid hardwood floors are more susceptible to moisture than engineered wood floors they are installed above grade over approved wooden sub-floors and must be nailed down. High quality solid wood floors can be sanded and refinished several times lasting a century or more.
Is a hardwood floor durable enough for my busy lifestyle?
Hardwood floors are one of the most durable floor coverings you can purchase. While carpet, vinyl and laminates will show wear and tear and have to be replaced after only a few years, hardwood floors will last a century or more. Need proof? Take a stroll through an historic home, church, or building built in the 1700 or 1800s. Many of them still have the same floor as when they were built. Hardwood floors can be refnished time and time again to a virtually New Floor finish.
