The Differences Among Hardwood Flooring Types


When having installation services performed in your home, there are a variety of options to choose from in the realm of hardwood floors. While each carries their own benefits and drawbacks, knowing the specific dissimilarities among them can enable you to choose the best one for your living space. The hardwood floors Denver residents can select from will ultimately grant the greatest yield in home value and aesthetic appeal.
 
Unfinished Floors
Unfinished floors typically allow for the most customization as the home owner can decide on specific stains and finishes that would most impressively accompany the style of the house. The color of the stain can drastically impact how the flooring integrates with the furniture as well as the house itself.  Unfinished floors are sanded and finished on-site, so there will be no noticeable variations between each section of flooring and remain completely even. The authenticity of the wood will remain intact, allowing for a perfect way to complement a classic or modern home.
 
Pre-Finished Floors
Pre-finished floors typically have the greatest durability and can be refinished multiple times. Because they are finished at the factory, there is no necessity to vacate the premises due to toxic fumes or dust prevalent in unfinished flooring installation. This also allows you and your family to remain in-home during the installation and walk upon the floors as soon as they are installed.
 
Floating Floors
Floating floors can easily be placed over existing floors, permitting an expedited installation. Their simplicity in design allows them to be a versatile solution to possible room expansions; they fit together like a puzzle so you can continuously and easily build off of the existing hardwood flooring.
