Hardwood flooring: Four FAQs

Hardwood flooring: Four FAQs

Few floor coverings perform better than hardwood flooring, with stunning visuals, outstanding performance, and impressive lifespans. It’s an investment upfront, but it’s worth the money for the value it adds to your home.

It also brings many other benefits that will serve you well for as long as you’re in your home. Here are four questions and answers that could give you the information you need for your upcoming remodel.

1.      Will hardwood flooring meet my décor needs? Thanks to impressive species types, grain patterns, stain colors, and textures, to name only a few, you'll enjoy remarkable décor matching in every space. Ask about hardwood floors with different widths, lengths, and installation layouts for more options.

2.      How long does it take to install wood floors? Installation time depends on the product, your preferences, and how many rooms need flooring. Considering these factors, an average installation can take one to three days.

3.      Can I pet-proof hardwood? It’s possible to choose options that better protect your floors against dampness and scratching. Ask about special sealants and textures that add more protection and a longer lifespan with pets in the home.

4.      How long will these floors last? With professional installation and regular care, wood flooring in Halifax, NS, can last more than 100 years. Some historical buildings have hardwood floors that date back more than 200 years.
