Hardwood flooring in Jerseyville

We know how important hardwood floors are to those who love them. They are inviting, rustic and offer a sense of elegance that few other flooring options do. If you have never considered hardwood, however, maybe it’s time to take a serious look. At Jerseyville Carpet & Furniture, we offer a variety of hardwood floor coverings. You are sure to find something that will suit your style, because hardwood can be paired with nearly any décor. Here are some facts about this type of flooring you might not already know.

Hardwood species choices

There are many different species in this category. Each one holds a little something different for the homeowner. For instance, cherry wood is known for its unique coloring and the way it holds a stain. It’s also very hard and durable. Oak, on the other hand, is also very durable and takes a stain well, but with an entirely different look.

Here are just a few species options in this category:
  • Bamboo
  • Oak
  • Walnut
  • Maple
  • Ash

Hardwood flooring finishes

Just as there are many species of wood flooring, there are also many ways you can finish it. While some of them come prefinished, meaning they receive everything they need at the manufacturing location, some of them come still needing to be finished. Why do you need a finish on your wood floors? The finish is the part that makes your flooring resistant to water, stains, and so much more. Without it, keeping your wood floor clean would be a nightmare.

So here a few different finishes to ask about:
  • Wax
  • Polyurethane (water or oil based)
  • Swedish (acid-cured)
  • Oil sealer
  • Aluminum oxide
  • Shellac

Since the annual growth rate of American wood is greater than the rate at which it is removed, it is truly considered sustainable. This is great news for anyone who wants flooring made of natural material, but is also earth-conscious.

Finally, if you should choose to resell your home, wood floors will add to the resale value. It’s an option that never goes out of style, so you can’t lose with this type of flooring.
