Hardwood Flooring Myths
by ProSource on April 07, 2011
Myth #1: There are limited options for hardwood flooring.
Many options for hardwood floors are simply overlooked. Each type of wood has different characteristics that lead to different colors, finishes, grades, grains, and workability. Though options such as maple and oak are some of the more popular choices for Denver hardwood flooring, there are no shortages when it comes to options for hardwood floors.
Myth #2: Hardwood floors are easily damaged.
Hardwood floors are not easily damaged. Hardwood actually does well with humidity and spills if they are cleaned up quickly. Also, the stains and finishes used on hardwood also make them scratch resistant while bringing out the hardwood's natural beauty. Options such as maple for a hardwood would be a good idea if you were really concerned about scratches and dents. Yes, hardwood floors do scratch and dent, but they hold up very well in every day use and if you take care of them, they will maintain their beauty.
Myth #3: Hardwood floors are too expensive.
When purchasing hardwood floors, think about the investment going forward. Hardwood can increase property value like no other surface and can last many decades.
With a little TLC throughout the years, hardwood floors are an excellent option for any home! Feel free to swing by our Denver flooring showroom anytime with any questions!
