You've likely heard a lot about the lifespan you gain when choosing wood flooring. Solid wood floors can last more than 100 years under the right circumstances. 

But there's so much more to know about the lifespan of hardwood flooring. The more you know, the better decision you can make as you shop.

Why the long lifespan?

As an all-natural material, these floors stand up to much wear. When sealed, stained, and finished, wood floors are perfect for almost any area.

A professional installation is always recommended, offering the best possible results. It also ensures your warranty will remain intact for any unforeseen situations.

What about water damage?

Solid hardwood flooring can be susceptible to water damage. If you have humidity and dampness issues, consider engineered materials.

Engineered flooring is still natural wood, but it performs better in certain areas. If water damage is possible, speak with us about this option for the most extended lifespan.

Maintenance is essential for longevity

Keeping your floors well-maintained is another way to enjoy a long hardwood lifespan. Sweep and damp mop as necessary and use runners and rugs in high traffic areas.

After many years, wear will begin to show, which leads to the refinishing service. This is another excellent way to ensure you get the full potential from your flooring materials.
