You have finally made the decision to get a hardwood floor installed in your home. You have researched the benefits associated with hardwood flooring, and now you know this will be the best choice for you, your family, and your home. Now that you have decided to go with a hardwood floor, there are options. The decision-making process is not yet complete. There are many factors to consider when it’s time to select the type of hardwood floor you want to get for your humble abode. While you have some basic options like solid wood and engineered wood, there are still some differences and nuances associated with each of those. Here are some key questions that every homeowner should ask themselves before they finally decide upon a hardwood floor for their home.
Where Exactly Is The Hardwood Going To Be Installed?
When it comes to a location inside your home, it’s imperative to take into consideration the area within your home that you plan on installing hardwood flooring. The type of hardwood that is best for a kitchen may not be what is best in a bedroom or basement. As a result, installing hardwood floors can be very different on a second story compared to a basement.
What is the Material of the Subfloor?
Another fundamental question you should ask yourself when deciding the type of hardwood flooring to get for your home is, “what is the material of the subfloor?” The material of the subfloor you are dealing with can help you decide what specific type of hardwood to install. For example, if you own a concrete subfloor, then you pretty much are limited to getting engineered hardwood as opposed to solid wood. But, because there are so many options within the engineered wood style, there are still plenty of opportunities left that you can choose from to ensure you love the new hardwood floors you get installed in your humble abode.
