Do you have extra durability needs? Not all hardwood flooring has the same strength level, so ask where something's positioned on the Janka Scale. Do you want an exotic, harvested in locales like North Africa, Indonesia, Brazil, or a domestic, harvested within North America? Exotics are very hard, dark, and dramatic; domestics are warmer and more traditional and some, like oak and hickory, are pretty hard.
That is especially so when you look at the big picture. These floors last for decades, some up to 100 years, and often look even better with age. When they look scratched or worn, it usually takes only a refinishing to bring them up to luster, meaning there are few, if any, replacement costs. If you refinish, you can change your decor and stain them another color!
Hardwood flooring adds value to a property; in fact, real estate agents around the country tell us that potential buyers will often pay more for a house with these floors, whether solid or engineered. Come into the Floors 4 Iowa showroom in Ankeny, IA
