If you have your heart set on hardwood, you probably already have a good idea of what you want.

Options and Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
Wood flooring is probably best known for its amazing life span, and furthermore, for its durability when installed and maintained correctly. It’s likely to be the last floor covering you have installed as well, which saves you loads of money over time. It can even make money for you too, should you decide to sell your home at some point in the future. Would-be homeowners are always willing to pay more for homes in Portland with hardwood floors in place.
While wood floors should never be installed in below grade spaces, it’s an excellent floor covering in almost every other area of your home. Specifically in living areas and bedrooms, you’ll find it to offer a timeless elegance that never seems to go out of style. It fits most major home decor trends and with stain colors that can be changed when they’re refinished, they’ll always catch up to the latest trends.
One of the things that gives these floors their long life span is the fact that they can be refinished several times. In fact, when others are considering brand new flooring, you’ll just be preparing for your first refinishing project. During this time, if you’d like a different stain color, or perhaps a brand new type of finish, it can be added with no problems, and very little extra time.
We will make a special note of the fact that hardwood flooring installation should not be attempted by novice installers. It’s simply not worth the risk, when you have a professional installation team at your service.
