What Is Solid Hardwood?

Solid hardwood gets its name from the fact that it comes from one single piece of timber. It’s suitable throughout most areas the home and is available in a variety of options from light to dark and distressed to smooth. Each with unique characteristics to match your style. At Floor Coverings International Hillsborough we carry all the major brands and common species and styles of solid hardwood flooring, such as oak and maple.

Maintenance

With proper care, solid hardwood will age naturally and beautifully over the years. Incorporating cleaning habits such as spot mopping and regularly sweeping into your daily routine will ensure the longevity of your hardwood. Immediate attention to any spills is necessary to avoid warping or damaging the wood. Solid hardwood is also incredibly durable and can be sanded and refinished many times without losing quality.

Considerations

Solid hardwood is susceptible to expanding and contracting based on humidity and heat conditions. Most installers compensate for this fact by leaving a small bit of space between the solid wood flooring and the wall during installation. It is also a substantial financial investment compared to many other flooring options. However, it is an investment that can easily last for decades and add significant value to your home.
