3 Things You Should Know Before Choosing Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring in Burnaby has grown in popularity over the past few decades. With the increasing accessibility of hardwood flooring in Burnaby and its many benefits such as ease of maintenance, beauty and added value to a home, it becomes the most preferred type of flooring today.

Before picking the hardwood flooring that will go in your home, here are the things you need to consider first:

  1. The level of hardness of the wood

Different types of wood offer different levels of hardness. Take a look at the Janka scale. The one with the highest number is the hardest type of wood. If you have kids or pets at home, choose one with the hardest level as they are more capable in withstanding wear and tear.

  1. Style of wood

Keep in mind that not all woods take to staining in the same way. Some might stain more easily compared to other types of wood so it can be difficult to achieve the color you want. Red and white oak are a constant favorite because of how easy they are to stain and how easy it is for home owners to get their desired color.

  1. Costs of materials

The prices for wood are determined by the market demand and the supply of materials. Of course, if you opt for rarer or more exotic types of wood, the costs will skyrocket. The cost of installation is virtually the same for all types of wood.

Keep these things in mind before choosing or having hardwood flooring installed.
