Hardwood and Laminate Flooring
Think about how the flooring choices you make today will affect your family and the value of your home in the future. Wood floors last a long time, are healthier to live with and add value. Laminate flooring, which is made to look like natural wood, is a cost effective, easy to install alternative for home buyers. There is no doubt that hardwood and laminate flooring will give any room in your house a natural warmth and beauty.
Wood floors can last for a hundred years or more. There are very few flooring materials that have been around as long as wood. Over the centuries, it has shown itself to be a lovely and durable floor choice.
Not only is hardwood more pleasant to walk on, it is naturally warm. Wood is an excellent insulator, thanks to its thousands of tiny air chambers per cubic inch, which holds in heat.
Clean and Efficient
A little sweeping and mopping, and your hardwood floor will continue to look nice for a long time. As well as being easy to clean, they don’t give pollen, animal dander, or mold a place to thrive. Hardwood flooring is excellent for anyone with allergies.
The Janka Hardness Scale
The hardness of the wood floor you pick has a big impact on price, availability, durability and colour.
The hardness of a wood is rated on an industry wide standard known as the Janka test. The Janka test measures the force required to embed a .444 inch steel ball into the wood by half its diameter. This test is one of the best measures of the ability of a wood specie to withstand denting and wear. It is also a good indicator of how hard a specie is to saw, mill and nail.
There are many things to consider when choosing your wood, including the hardness, natural colour of the wood, the grain and the stability.
