How to Select the Right Hardwood

So, you've decided on hardwood for your next flooring. Congratulations! We want you to be fully informed at About All Floors, so we've put together a guide for selecting your hardwood. This should help you navigate the options and services that are available to you.

Important hardwood flooring factors

You want to personalize your hardwood. The following can be critical decisions that you need to make.

We can help you with that.

• Species selection-
Each wood species can offer you different characteristics, visuals, and hardness. For example, oak has a long lifespan, ease of maintenance, and excellent durability.

• Stain selection-
When you choose a stain, you are selecting something that will endure through the trends of the decades. So you want it to match the décor of the home.

• Finish selection-
The finish can be for both appearance and durability. A distressed, or wire-brushed, or vintage look can hide daily wear signs longer than a high-gloss finish. It also adds a beautiful effect to the wood.

• Prefinished or site-finished materials-
If you choose prefinished wood, the installation process will be quicker, as there would be no need for sanding, staining, sealing, or finishing in your home. Site-finished woods require more ample time for installation, but you’ll get more stain color, finish, and sealant options for a personalized look and functionality.
