29 Dec Hardwood Flooring Factors to Consider
Hardwood flooring is a beautiful choice for any home. If you are upgrading your home or simply remodeling a room here are some factors you may want to consider.
Which Room are you Flooring?
Hardwood flooring looks great in any room but can sometimes not be the best choice for rooms that are prone to wetness. You may want to reconsider if you are thinking about adding it to a full bathroom or laundry room. There are som workarounds, however. Speak to a hardwood flooring expert before making any decisions.
Is Hardwood Flooring Pet Friendly?
Hardwood flooring is relatively pet friendly. You can do things like keeping pets’ nails trimmed to avoid scratching the floor, cleaning messes immediately after they are made, and laying a mat under water dishes to minimize spills. Hardwood flooring can be hard on older pet’s joints, so provide soft mats or pet beds where they can lie down comfortably.
Do you need an Underlayment?
Underlayment products provide a base for the floor. This layer also limits noise, and adds insulation. Cushioned materials such as cork and form are ideal beneath floating floors. Vinyl- and plastic-lined underlayments are best in moisture-prone areas but not a huge concern in Nevada. Manufacturers offer many options and featuring a variety of benefits and price points.
