Brough Carpets Can Help You Choose and Install Beautiful Wood Flooring That Offers Amazing Looks, Durability and Long Life
Hardwood floors are as close to immortal as any flooring material can be. Many that were installed 100 years ago or even more, are still in use today and are in relatively good condition aesthetically and functionally. There are three different styles of solid wood floors: Tongue and groove, square edge and parquet. They are all made from solid wood, but are made into different formats that include:
The narrower and shorter the boards the cheaper they are, as they can be cut from smaller logs. The grade also affects the price, because the better the grade, the more expensive it is, since these have to be chosen from the best wood logs available.
Timber Species for Solid Wood Flooring
Oak is one of the strongest and most often chosen woods. It provides a smooth, clean, surface finish. Walnut burl, while exceedingly expensive, offers a unique design that will elicit comments from everybody that views it. Pine, while softer than most other wood species, is a popular choice because of its depth and beauty, but it is less durable.
Other woods include Beech and Maple that both are light in color and often associated with contemporary homes. Elm, while harder to get, is a stunning floor material with a very unusual grain pattern. These are the most popular woods, but the list is nearly endless and includes many domestic and exotic species. The flooring material that you finally select will likely depend on where you live. Remember, too, that any hardwood species you choose can be obtained natural or pre-finished with a lustrous and durable surface coating of polyurethane at the factory.
