Hardwood floors are usually considered more costly, but can really be quite cost-effective. Wood floors have a natural beauty and wear very well. It is a natural and renewable product, much like cork and bamboo. Today’s wood flooring products have a protective finish that makes wood floors very tough, durable and long-lasting.
As long as you care for your wood floors, there is nothing that will stain them, therefore making wood floors stain resistant.
Warranties on wood floor finishes and structural wear are from 15 to 25 years, but with the proper care, your wood floors should last for 50 years or more.
There is also engineered hardwood that is more flexible than non-engineered. You should ask a professional at Bryer Carpet and Blinds to show you any difference from the showroom samples.
Wood floors vary in cost, could be laid on top of older floors, stapled down, and with the snap and lock features of the wood flooring, it is a do-it-yourself project, avoiding the cost of labor. With that said, make sure you watch the video: How To finish Your Hardwood Floor. Or ask about our professional floor installation service.
