YOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION ABOUT HARDWOOD FLOORING ANSWERED - IDEA HARDWOOD FLOOR EXPERTS | INSTALLATION, REPAIR & REFINISHING
How do I choose the perfect hardwood floor species, color, and board size for my property?
Choosing the best hardwood flooring for your residential or commercial space can be overwhelming especially with lots of decisions to make.
There are different varieties of wood species, colors, and grain patterns you or your contractor can choose from. Since your wood flooring would make the majority part of any room in your house or office, this should complement the rest of your furnishings including the cabinets and curtains. If you need assistance, you may get in touch with our hardwood flooring contractors.
What is the difference between an engineered wood floor and a solid wood floor?
Solid hardwood flooring is typically designed in long planks and looks closely similar with its alternative, engineered hardwood flooring. When it comes to the cons, engineered hardwood flooring tends to be unstable, given its cross layers.
Moreover, due to its thin veneer wear layers, they cannot be entirely sanded and refinished unlike other materials. For properties with heavy traffic like houses and offices, consider getting an engineered hardwood flooring with a thicker wear layer.
Should I wax my urethane finished floor?
It is strongly advised to refrain from waxing the urethane finish on your hardwood flooring. This causes a slippery surface and leaves a film that makes a dull factory-applied finish. As a result, this allows dirt to stick into the film. Companies also likely void warranties upon application of wax on the hardwood flooring. For proper maintenance, it is best to call our contractors.
