Benefits Of Wood Flooring

Solid wood floors in Spotsylvania, VA have been known to last for more than one hundred years.  Solid wood is durable and can be easily refinished when necessary.  And having hardwood floors will likely add value to your home if you should decide to sell.  

There was a time when you didn’t have a choice beyond hardwood flooring or no hardwood flooring.  But with wood floors in Spotsylvania, VA becoming in vogue again and people needing a more affordable way to get the flooring into homes, there are many more choices.  As recycle and reuse is becoming more of a way of life for some people the flooring industry has responded.  There is a whole industry based on reclaimed wood.  As the world has become smaller it is also possible to use more exotic woods for flooring.  This gives a homeowner a wider variety of natural colors from which to choose.  

A cost effective new way of having hardwood flooring is by purchasing engineered wood flooring.  This type of flooring is prefinished, and there is a thin layer of real hardwood on top of some sort of plywood.  This is all with either a tongue and groove system or click lock for easy installation.  The click lock version can be put in like a floating floor and does not need to be nailed down.  This is another way to reduce the mess of having to finish wood floors in Spotsylvania, VA on site.  Many homeowners are going with the wood flooring that is prefinished at the factory.  This will eliminate the dust, smells, and inconvenience of waiting to be able to walk on the floor.  

Exotic woods are becoming increasing popular.  Partly due to the rich colors that you can’t find in domestic wood and in some cases are a harder wood than either oak or maple.  There are also tropical woods that are considered environmentally friendly.  One of which is bamboo.  Bamboo is not really wood but still makes for a beautiful floor and is easily replenished.

 

If being green is important to you consider reclaimed wood flooring.  This may also be of interest for anyone who wants something different and unique.  This wood can be from old buildings, old box cars, and in some cases salvaged from lakes and rivers.  This type of wood will not be perfect, but it will be loaded with character.
