Hardwood flooring is versatile and easy to install. It can be glued or nailed, or have an interlocking system. The type of installation depends on the subfloor. Hardwood flooring can be uniform in color and texture, or full of rich variety and character. Paint, varnish, wax, or stain can be used to enhance the beauty of wood, protect it from damage and seal out moisture.
No matter how many steps, no matter how many sports, wood flooring has the best environmental performance. Hardwood floor from Canada can last over a century, making it very economical.
A hardwood floor is a sanitary and hypoallergenic covering, since it does not provide a support to the development of allergens. Using another kind of flooring risks increasing the amount of pollutants in the home – from twice to five times the pollution outdoors. On hardwood flooring, allergens are easily removed and so is a family mess.
In addition, wood floors maintain their value over time. Whereas other types of flooring appear faded and outdated after a few years, wood floors keep their charm and are a valuable asset when selling a house.
Finally, hardwood flooring is also a regulating element in buildings. It not only serves as a humidifer in an indoor environment that is too dry, but also as a dehumidifer in a room that is too damp.
