Longevity and durability in your Wood Flooring.

Longevity and durability in your Wood Flooring.

Date: 28th September 2021 | By: Mike Reiffer

Deciding to have a wooden floor installed into your home or business needs to be seen as a long term investment which means that longevity and durability are at the forefront of your mind when you choose us as your Wood Floor Specialists.

The durability and longevity of hardwood flooring is something that WFS pride ourselves on, which is why we use such high-quality products on all of our projects. We are confident in meeting our clients’ specifications and confident that our wood floorings will last.

Day to day wear and tear.

We know that your home is there to be lived in. You will inevitably get the day to day marks, the pitter-patter of tiny feet or paws, and social gathering reminders that mean your wood floor cannot be just for show. Therefore, it needs to be practical, stylish, and, most importantly, durable.

One of the most popular types of flooring that we install here at WFS is an engineered hardwood flooring that can have a lifespan anywhere between 40 and 80 years if kept in good condition. This is one of the only types of wood flooring that has this longevity length and therefore is a sensible choice when looking for flooring that will last.

Adding character to your floor.

It is important to note that although an engineered hardwood floor is long-lasting, it is still liable to dents, scratches and marks from everyday use. We like to think of these marks as adding character to your flooring, but some people may want their floors to stay immaculate, which is not feasible when you’re living with flooring of this nature. However, despite being susceptible to marks, dents and scratches, the wood floorings that we install can be restored and refinished to keep them looking as new as possible, this will increase their longevity.

Good quality hardwood floor.

Durable flooring is important because a floor goes through a lifecycle of being used and being susceptible to other internal factors such as moisture. The benefits of a hardwood floor are the combination of oils and finishes that can be used to make it suitable for many rooms in the house. Some rooms can get damp or humid due to various factors, and by ensuring that a hardwood floor is sealed correctly, the flooring should be able to withstand varying levels of humidity and dampness within the home.

A quality wood floor is not a cheap installation, and here at Wood Floor Specialist, we want to make sure that each customer gets a wood flooring that they are happy with and that will last a long time. By ensuring that a wood floor is installed correctly and finished with the right products with clear guidance on the best way to maintain it, we are confident that the wood flooring you choose to buy from us will last you many years.
