FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN SHOPPING FOR A FLOOR

The look, feel – and even the sound – of a floor are important. So are these practical considerations:

--Health effects. Doctors often recommend hardwood floors when their patients have allergies to dust and pet dander.

--Longevity. Can the floor be refinished and – if so – about how many times?

--Durability. Will the floor stand up to the demands of everyday life? Hardwood floors certainly will. It’s no coincidence pro basketball courts have maple floors.

--Installation and maintenance. Will laying the floors pose any particular challenges? Is maintenance simple?

--Cost. How much does an inexpensive floor really cost if it only lasts several years? Hardwood floors will last a lifetime.

--Sustainability. American hardwoods are sustainable, renewable and environmentally friendly. Every year, this country’s hardwood forests grow twice as much wood as we harvest from them.
