Factors to Consider when Choosing Wood Floors

Ryan Stecklair

Wood floors come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, color, grain, and hardness. This is why selecting the right type for a home can be a tricky experience for some. In order to make the floor selection process an easier one, here are some tips to follow:

First, remember that different locations in your home may require a different tyoe of wood floor. These materials respond differently to moisture, foot traffic, and general wear and tear so what might be best for your bedroom may not be best for your patio. Remember that solid wood floors are sensitive to moisture and should not be installed on or below ground level.

It is also useful to consider whether or not the sub floor will jive well with the tyoe of wood flooring.Remember that wood floors can be installed without much of a fuss over any surface (save for carpet) but there somtimes, there should be proper underlayment, a moisture barrier, and some repairs and leveling on the sub floor.

As far as hardness is concerned, there are two types to choose from: hard (sourced from deciduous trees like oak) and soft (sourced from coniferous trees like pine). Hardness varies among tree species and is rated accordingly. In general, hardwoods are less prone to scratching but can be more difficult to install while soft wood can be easier to work with but are more susceptible to wear and tear.

Finally, prices are often determined by the hardness of the wood as well as its availability. Locally sourced softwoods like pine can be bought at a lower price while imported hardwoods, especially those with higher ratings, can be more costly.
