Why Hardwood?

Background

1. STRENGTH & DURABILITY
Other flooring materials may look worn and tired over time, but hardwood floors get more beautiful with age. High-quality, kiln-dried hardwood floors are tough, hard-wearing, and can withstand heavy foot traffic and last for generations. If you ever want to update your hardwood floors, they can simply be refinished rather than replaced.

Background

2. A LONG-TERM INVESTMENT
Hardwood flooring increases the resale value of your property. In fact, your home's resale mark-up can eventually meet or exceed the initial cost of installing the floors. The sophisticated look of hardwood is an impressive factor when staging or preparing your home for viewing by potential buyers.


3. VARIETY
A range of available colours, stains, wood species, finishes, and textures means you're guaranteed to find the hardwood floor that's right for you.

4. EASY TO CLEAN
Hardwood floors do not accumulate a lot of dirt, dust, or debris. A weekly cleaning process involves mopping, vacuuming, and keeping the floor dry. That's it!


5. BEAUTY & ELEGANCE
Hardwood flooring evokes an elegant, high-end aesthetic, and the natural warmth and beauty of wood will never go out of style. In addition, hardwood floors are known for creating a sense of ample spaciousness in any room.

6. AIR AND SOUND QUALITY
A properly-installed hardwood floor never emits vibrations or hollow sounds. And if you or someone in your family plays a musical instrument, hardwood flooring will add warmth to the sound and liven it up. Furthermore, hardwood flooring is a healthy choice for optimal air quality, particularly for those who suffer from allergies. Hardwood has no fibres, embossing, or grout lines that can trap pollen, dust particles, animal dander, or other allergens. Breathe easy and enjoy the acoustics in your space!
