Pros & Cons
Solid wood is found throughout homes in the Sedona area for a few reasons including the ease of maintenance, durability, and style options. Wood is extremely easy to clean and maintain – simply sweep every few days to remove dirt and debris. Hardwood can take quite a beating and is perfect in high-traffic areas such as hallways or living rooms. If scuffs and scrapes do appear on your floors, it can be re-sanded and re-finished many times without losing its quality.
You should be aware that solid hardwood naturally expands and contracts. Installers will take this into account and leave a small gap between your floors and the wall. This gaps is often covered by a baseboard. This shift in size is usually due to temperature and humidity changes. Wood doesn’t do well with moisture and should be avoided in basements or bathrooms. Choose an engineered floor if you want a wood option installed below-ground.
You have many options to choose from when you choose hardwood floors including the species, finish, and stain.
