If you've ever walked through an older home, one of its selling points may be the original hardwood floors. This type of flooring material is extremely elegant and timeless, making it a top choice among homeowners. One of the most appealing aspects of hardwood is its durability. This flooring can last for centuries, looking just as good more than 100 years later as it did when it was first installed. Hardwood flooring is also easy to maintain. As long as you stick to wood-friendly cleaning products and sweep the floors regularly, they'll maintain their beauty and value. If you do notice any scratches or scuffs in the wood, the damaged plank can be removed, sanded, and stained to look as good as new again.
Hardwood floors add a beauty and warmth to any home that is hard to match with any other type of floor covering. Never out of fashion, hardwood flooring add real value to any home in Asheville, North Carolina. With proper maintenance, these floors can last a lifetime! This can make the price over the life of the product very economical. If anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, you may be looking for ways to reduce their symptoms. Carpeting can trap dust, pollen, pet hair, dander, and other debris in its fibers, causing allergies to flare up more frequently. Hardwood flooring will eliminate this problem because allergens have nowhere to hide. Instead, you can simply sweep or vacuum to remove the contaminants that may settle on the surface.
If you ever grow tired of the look of your hardwood flooring, you don't have to invest a lot of money to replace it. Instead, you can have the wood planks sanded down and re-stained to transform the look and feel. Lighter wood can become dark, rich floors that add depth and uniqueness to your home.
Manufacturing of hardwood floors has improved dramatically over the years, and today's hardwood floors are more durable and adaptable to different types of living areas within the home. Today's hardwood flooring comes in a much wider selection of colors, wood species, and widths. Besides the classic North American hardwoods (like red oak, white oak, maple and ash), many manufacturers now offer exotic hardwood species from all over the world. Exotic hardwoods allow homeowners the chance to better express their own personal decorating tastes with a more unique-looking floor.
