Picking your own unique features is one of the things that makes hardwood flooring
so enjoyable. You can start by picking your favorite species of wood. As long as it fits in with the activity level of your household, it will work for you. Harder woods are best suited for active households, while those homes with less traffic can get away with softer wood.
It’s important to know that solid wood floors cannot be installed in below grade spaces. The moisture, humidity, and frequent temperature changes can have an adverse reaction on the wood causing it to warp, buckle, and even crack or split. If you have those kinds of spaces that need flooring, ask about engineered wood flooring. It doesn’t react the same way as solid wood and makes a much better alternative in these spaces.
It’s important to make sure you have an experienced installer to do the work of installing this floor covering. There are many mistakes that an inexperienced installer can make that will send you reeling over your budget very quickly. Odds are, you’re likely to save money by leaving this job to the professionals. Be sure to ask your flooring specialist about even more information on this particular process.
