Hardwood flooring installation in Portland, Oregon​

Hardwood flooring is some of the most lasting and affordable flooring for your home. Using the right flooring type, brand, and installation process ensures these beautiful floors will last for years. At Marion's Carpet Warehouse, we have knowledge of all brands in the Portland area and the expertise to answer all of your flooring questions.

Hardwood flooring types

There are many wood flooring types to choose from that all possess their own charm. Checking the foundation under the flooring will help you narrow your search, as the heaviness of the flooring will need to be considered. You'll first need to decide if you want solid hardwood floors or engineered hardwood floors. Next, what species of wood best serves your space? Domestic species like maple and oak are typically more affordable than exotic ones. Exotic wood from around the world may create the perfect tone in a room. The finish of wood floors can either be smooth, distressed to create an antique look, or hand-scraped with long flat lines. Hardwood floors mostly come prefinished, though unfinished floors allow you to pick your own stain and sealant.

Hardwood flooring care

Hardwood flooring can be sensitive to light as well as vulnerable to moisture and scrapes. Daily activities such as dusting and cleaning should be done to prevent dirt from scratching the floors. Little to no liquid should be used as moisture can cause the wood to warp and swell. Always check the pH level of the water-based polishes you use every few months to prevent over-stripping during the cleaning of your floors.
