Why Choose solid timber/hardwood floors?
Hardwood flooring is a great choice in solid timber flooring, the benefits are many including being very low maintenance. The benefits of hardwood floors certainly outweigh the initial cost. They are designed to last a lifetime with very little hard work involved.
Hygienic & Clean
One of the biggest advantages of hardwood floors is that solid timber flooring is a more sanitary option than other floor types. If you think about carpet versus hardwood; dust, germs and other debris get absorbed into the carpet fibres. With hardwood flooring, there is no place for debris to hide, making for a healthier, safer living environment, especially for allergy sufferers and young children.
Hardwood floors may cost more than carpeted floors, but they also require less maintenance. Solid Timber/hardwood floors are sealed surfaces with a protective layer of finish, therefore are more stain resistant many other types of flooring. Another benefit of hardwood floors is that they can be repaired and refinished. See Sanding & Polishing . Solid timber flooring can simply be sanded, and refinished/polished. Unless there severe water damage, it is rare that a solid timber floor will need replacing.
Another advantage of hardwood floors is the environmental factor. Wood flooring is the most abundantly renewable flooring material available. Hardwood not only brings beauty and value to a home, but it can truly last a lifetime while floor covering such as carpet needs replacing every 10-15 years.
