Thinking of Hardwood Floors? What you need to know

Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular flooring types. See the difference between the options.  Are you going to do a fake plastic wood floor or real wood?

Did you already have a wooden floor and didn’t know?

Especially in the environmentally conscious world we live in today, already having a wood floor that you can fix up can be cheaper and more green.

Instead of having to replace carpets, you can strike and restore a wooden floor. When restoring a wooden base, you save a lot of money: that cost is lower than when buying and embedding a new one.

Check under your carpet to see if you already have a hidden wooden floor!

Different Types of Wood Flooring

Consider the following factors when choosing between solid wood and construction or prefab cheaper flooring:

Wood flooring can consist of several types of wood, from walnut to bamboo. Hardwood floors can be dusted and prepared from soft to hard, and you know, soft wood is still firm. It actually feels different on your bare feet and how you walk, depending on the material.

Some make more noise than others and can be better whether you have little babies sleeping in the other room or not!

While construction flooring can be up to three or two times cheaper, depending on the depth of the imitation wood, real wood is considered a real commodity these days.

Wood Flooring:

Make sure you research the suppliers of wood flooring, also read the reviews and compare different attributes. Check out everything including Warranty to Price.  You can get a lot of reviews by searching reviews: then (brandname) and (wood type).  That’s what I did.  Hear what other people say when they bought them. It’s a big investment for you!

Installation:

Usually a second level is put under the flooring, this is common and people who put in wood floors are specialized in knowing whether your home needs one or not.

Shop around at least 2 or 3 quotes and meet with them at your house to see who is going to do a good job.  A good wooden floor should last 100 years!
