Terms You Should Know Before Buying Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood has become a popular flooring choice for many homeowners. Hardwood floors are more hypoallergenic than carpet because they do not attract and lock in dust and other allergens. They are also easy to clean and maintain. If you are unfamiliar with this type of flooring, here are a few key terms you should know.

  • Refinish - the process of hardwood restoration. Refinishing allows you to keep your current floor, but revives its beauty by sanding down the damaged portion and re-staining the wood.
  • Laminate - A synthetic tile flooring that is cheaper than actual lumber. It is made by fusing together multiple layers of fiber board, a graphic to stimulate the look of real wood, and a clear coating to protect its appearance and surface against daily wear.
  • Lumber - Cut pieces of wood that are either finished, which would include them being sanded and stained, or unfinished. It can be made from any type of tree such as cedar, beech, and oak.
  • Hardwood - Wood from angiosperm trees. There are about 100 times as many hardwoods as there are softwoods. Even the weakest hardwood is much more durable than the strongest softwood. An example is oak.
  • Sustainable Flooring - Flooring made out of natural resources that cause no long term harm to the Earth. Common flooring includes cork and bamboo. Bamboo is a fast growing and easily replaced plant that is mostly harvested in Asia. For cork flooring, the scraps from wine bottle manufacturing companies are recycled. This material is made of only bark so no trees need to be cut down. Both these products have gained popularity because of green and environmentally-friendly movements.

    Both work-related and living spaces frequently have hardwood flooring installed. Contractors can be readily contacted in most areas to perform this service, which can be equally applicable to homes and offices. When considering hardwood flooring options, the specific building's present state should be taken into account. Similar to tile floors, hardwood will often require cleaning and sanding at some point. If a space's commercial or residential usefulness has been neglected, owners might want to carry out a restoration and refinishing project. A refinished and laminated floor can thus avert the common pitfalls of warping and staining. Owners putting in a new floor or deck must choose between different varieties of lumber. Some popular options include oak, cherry, bamboo and maple. People aiming to give their home a more distinctive appearance might choose, ahead of bamboo or oak, less common options like alder. Additionally, people will have to decide specifically how they are going to install their hardwood flooring. Cork, for one, could be laid under the planks or panels of whichever material happens to be chosen. Rather than cork, people could opt for parquet installation. This procedure involves the use of a concrete base under the hardwood flooring. Homeowners should also decide on the type of molding to employ, and whether to use a tapping block. With information on home construction, renovation and upkeep commonly available online, more options exist than ever before for hardwood flooring installation and upkeep. People can choose to hire contractors for this work, or could look into doing it themselves.
