Solid hardwood can last for a very long time in your home as long as it is properly taken care of.
There are many different types of hardwood boards we can install. These come in planks, strips, and parquet. Planks are one of the most popular types and are available in sizes ranging from 3 inches to 5 or even 7 inches. Some newer styles of wide planks even use a combination of widths to vary the look of the flooring. Strip flooring choices are usually available in widths below 3 inches. The style of these strips look as up to date today as they did 50 years ago and are sure to stand the test of time. Parquet flooring uses small pieces arranged in geometric patterns. These patterns can range from simple designs to incredibly elaborate and detailed patterns.
