The beauty of a hardwood floor is incomparable – which is why it is one of the oldest and most used flooring options available. Compared to carpet, it is low maintenance and far less likely to go out of style. Though they are pricier, hardwood floors will last much longer with proper maintenance and add a lot of value to your home. The great variety of different trees and wood types available provide an unsurpassed amount of choice in regards to color, style, and grain patterns.

Oak is one of the most popular types of wood in use for flooring. Its warmth and character gives it an everlasting look. A variety of stains can be used to highlight oak's natural beauty.

Maple wood with warm medium brown color


Maple floors are known for their durability and versatility. Their long-lasting quality makes them a excellent deal and they will compliment almost any room and décor.

Hickory is another durable hardwood that is great for rooms with a lot of traffic. It also provides a rustic look and adds character to a room.

Ash wood with a warm tan color

Hardwood is a Durable Flooring Material

As long as you treat your hardwood floors with care, they should last you a long time. Be sure to talk with your flooring installer about specific care for the hardwood you’re having installed. Generally you just want to avoid spills, and clean them up quickly when they do happen. Doing so will keep your floors looking great far into the future.
