Solid wood floors are made from solid wood instead of layers of wood that have been bonded together. Each solid wood floor plank consists of one piece of hardwood, typically ¾ of an inch thick. The wood itself can be a variety of species, from oak to maple, cherry, bamboo, walnut, ash, mahogany and others. Each offers its own unique look, as do the various finishes 50 Floor makes available for you.
The Benefits of Solid Wood Flooring
If you’re considering solid wood floors for your home, you will want to talk about the many benefits of hardwood floors during your free 50 Floor in-home consultation:
- Durability: These floors are durable and long-lasting. One of the most significant benefits of wooden flooring is that this type of floor can withstand heavy use. With proper care, it can last a long time. Unlike many other choices, if your floor gets dented or scratched, you may also be able to sand it down and refinish it to give it new life. The durable nature of these floors also makes them a cost-effective investment over time, since you may need to replace them less often than other types of floor.
- Simple Maintenance: With wood, your flooring will be easy to clean. Dusting, mopping and drying are what it takes to keep your home looking its best. As long as you avoid moisture and water, you’ll find your floors keep on looking great.
- Added Value: Wood floors may make your home more valuable. Many home buyers see wood floors as an advantage, which means this choice can make your home more attractive and valuable.
- Allergen-Resistant: These floors are great for allergy sufferers and anyone concerned about air quality. Wood floors will not trap allergens such as dust, dander, pollen and other allergens.
- Attractive: Wooden floors are highly flexible and always look great. The natural grain and colors of wood floors make them very adaptable, so even as you change your room’s decor, your floors will continue to look great. Many people also prefer the appearance of hardwood.
- Improved Acoustics: Wood floors give you superior acoustics. These floors will help you avoid the echoing or hollow sound of some other flooring options.
