Wood Flooring

Wood flooring is popular with many homeowners because of its unrivaled beauty and warmth. A wood floor can make any room in the house more inviting. The variety of available woods for flooring is continuing to increase, creating new decorative options for interior design.

Properly finished wood flooring can have many positive benefits. It is fairly easy to keep clean, only requiring a wet mop in most cases. Installing a wood floor can also increase the overall value of your home. Most real estate agents will tell you that a hardwood floor is one of the biggest selling points of a home.

Wood flooring does have several disadvantages. First, it does require a degree of maintenance (aside from cleaning). Wood floors often need to be oiled and waxed, and depending on the circumstances they should be refinished periodically. Wood floors are also more prone to dents and scratches than other flooring options.
