What is hardwood flooring?
Hardwood flooring is the preferred type for homes with basements. It is laid over the plywood that covers the floor joists, making for a very sturdy floor. Solid hardwood is 0.75 inches (1.905 cm) thick, and will last a lifetime if properly cared for. The biggest benefit to this type of flooring is that it can be refinished as often as desired and responds well to color change, when done by a professional. This is the best type of wood flooring for someone considering keeping it 20 years or longer.
The types of it?
Hardwood flooring adds a air of elegance to your house that can’t be matched by tile or carpeting. It is often more expensive than tile or carpeting but it holds up well, even in areas of high traffic. There are several types of hardwood flooring, including solid, engineered, and acrylic impregnated.
