When it concerns deciding your wooden floor there are various aspects to think of on top of which firm will place your floor . As the information of a wood floor fitter could be influenced to what item brings the greatest margin . Here is a introduction into wooden floors.
Colour and structure of the wood is not the only thing that affects the look of your floor. Patterns have a great influence on looks and can integrate the shape of the room. The 3 major patterns are: narrow strips, wide planks, and parquet squares. Narrow strips are the most common one to find in wood flooring and as some patterns such as a specific parquet square do not come in all wood type maybe this should have been the starting point of your selection.
While you check the label it might at the same time be a good thing to ask for the variations in the warranty per wooden floor firm . Warranties usually only cover manufacturing mistakes and then you will notice. there is not much to fail with solid flooring. Engineered wood flooring on the other hand is a complicated gluing process where manufacturing mistakes can be made by plain tasks like lack of pressure during the bonding process or with cheaper floors not pressurized long enough.
Moisture movement is another thing to inspect when selecting your floor. And with moisture I mean moisture in the air. Oak is a wood that spreads out heavily when the air is moister . and when using an oak floor it need to have enough space to expand (called an expansion gap) otherwise the wood will be twisting and making a very unsightly and uneven surface. Every wood has moisture movement you just need to know how much . and ensure that your fitters know what they are doing. And if your climate has a large temperature and moisture deviation you might want to pick a wood type that extends less .
As with any wooden product you want to make sure it is sourced sustainable so checking out the label and checking what the label actually means is a good routine to get into, not just for flooring. This counts even more so when it comes to hardwood as still significant bits of hardwood are still unlabelled because they are not grown eco friendly or even worse they just have some label stuck on it without any meaning.
When selecting the finish for your floor the first thing you would have to figure out is how shiny do you want it to be then you need to know how much abuse your floor is going to get and after that you need to pick how often you are prepared to maintain the finish.
