Why Wood Floors?
No other flooring offers the warmth, beauty, and value of wood. Wooden floooring enhances the decor of any room, and provides timeless beauty that will increase in value throughout the years. In fact, in a national survey of real estate agrents, 90 percent said that houses with wooden flooring sell faster for higher prices than houses without them. While the beauty and elegane of wood enhances a home's charm, it is much more than an aesthetic choice. Wooden flooring provides real benefits over other floor coverings. First, wood is an excellant insulator. And contrary to popular belief, hardwood actually protects against fire as it chars and burns slowly, never melting or crumbling. Wood is also easy to work with and unlike other floor coverings can be stained, cut, shaped, and refinished, giving it durability spanning generations.
