Types of hardwood floors
Today you can put hardwood floors anywhere in your home or business. Where you want it installed will determine what type of wood flooring you should use. First, to consider is whether to buy unfinished wood flooring or factory-finished flooring. All wood flooring requires some kind of finish. If you choose unfinished wood flooring, your installer will sand the wood and apply the finish at your site. There are several different finish options available. The kind you choose will depend on your project. Do you need to match existing flooring or are you looking for a particular color? Then unfinished wood flooring may be your best option.
You may want to consider factory-finished wood flooring. This type of wood flooring is now widely available, and it requires less time to install because it comes already sanded and finished. Two of the benefits of this option are that the floor is immediately ready to walk on, and the floor tends to have a harder surface. While there are many options available with factory-finished floors, you would not be able to accomplish the same degree of customization that you can with site finished wood floors.
Talk to your hardwood floor installer to find out which type of floors would best meet your home’s needs.
