Hardwood evokes images of charm, richness, and warmth. Many wood floors have lasted generations and give character to a room with age.
Things to Consider:
Today’s most popular species are oak, maple and hickory due to their durability. Hardwood species can also vary in colour and grain patterns. Woods like Walnut and Hard Pine are not as durable for modern homes, but are truly striking in appearance.
Depending on the species, stains can vary from natural and light to near-black espresso finishes. Sheen is also quite variable with a matte or satin finish being trendier today.
Colour variations and sheen level are just as important as the hardness or species of wood to keep your home looking pristine. Households with children and pets can leave marks to last a lifetime. We recommend an engineered floor that is either hand-scraped or wire-brushed with colour variation to keep your room magazine worthy. Along with humidity and moisture levels, proper care and preventive maintenance will keep your floors looking good for many years to come.
Cleaning & maintaining your hardwood floors:
We recommend avoiding consumer grade hardwood cleaners and water & vinegar solutions as they will harm the floors finish. Professional product such as "Woodpecker" will protect and clean properly.
