Hardwood floors are an excellent long-term investment for your home. While they may have a high upfront cost, natural wood floors add value to your property and are designed to last the life of your home in many cases. Hardwood also does not trap dust and allergens because there are no fibers like carpet or grout lines like tile.
There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to hardwood floors. You can choose the finish, color, and style that best suit your design needs and personal preferences. In general, wood is a timeless and ageless material that never goes out of style. Also, many interior decorators swear by the look of hardwood floors because of its elegance, quality, and the fact that it can make rooms appear to be more spacious. We have unique options like extra wide hardwood planks and collections with wire brushed and handscraped textures, so be sure to visit our showroom to see the latest trends and styles.
The most common stress a hardwood floor is exposed to is moisture. It can cause your floors to swell, buckle, and crack over time and when drastic changes in weather happen. We can test your home for moisture content as well as the hardwood you are choosing to install to ensure a good pairing. Our salesperson indicates the specific percentages of humidity and temperature levels that is associated with your product, and informs you of how to maintain the hardwood. We drill a hole in your subfloor and insert capsules in the hole that measures the relative humidity. Again, we will measure two weeks later, after installation, to ensure that there are no problems.
Solid hardwood, which many homeowners consider the traditional choice, features a uniform construction. The wood planks are made from a single strip of premium hardwood, such as oak, hickory, maple, or birch. These planks are relatively thick, so solid hardwood can be refinished multiple times to extend their lifespan in your home. Engineered hardwood is made from multiple wood layers, so it is more dimensionally stable and moisture-resistant than solid wood floors. This makes it popular for people who are worried about Florida’s humidity, as well as busy activity in the home.
Investing in high-quality hardwood will ensure that your floors last the test of time. Solid hardwood is best for rooms that are on and above level in your home like bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood however is suitable for all levels of your home, and can even be installed in finished basements. Since the climate down here in Florida tends to be humid, engineered hardwood is a great choice, and we offer moisture testing to ensure your space is right. Even engineered hardwood still should not be installed in areas with a lot of moisture like bathrooms and laundry rooms. Engineered wood delivers the warmth and added value you expect from a hardwood floor, but is much more cross-functional. Even areas in your home that experience heavy traffic are great locations for engineered hardwood, and you can show off your floors to your guests without having to worry about accidental damage. Engineered wood can be refinished like solid wood, but the number of times depends on how thick the top layer of wood is.
