Hardwood flooring is the traditional choice in home flooring. The fact that it still holds up in older homes, dating back to the early 20th Century in some cases, is a testament to its durability. Even after years under carpet or linoleum, many hardwood floors can be rediscovered, refinished, and re-enjoyed. And that is exactly what this branch of our CalFinder Library will divulge: the many possibilities of hardwood flooring.
A new or refinished hardwood floor will almost certainly change the entire feel of a home. It may suddenly gain a colonial elegance or a countryside charm. Hardwood floors somehow liven up the living space, more so than carpet or even tile can usually achieve, be it oak, maple, walnut, Brazilian cherry, solid, or engineered wood.
In the Hardwood Flooring library, you’ll also find information on purchasing, installing, finishing, sanding, staining, resurfacing, maintaining your hardwood, plus everything in between. Installing new or renewing old hardwood flooring is a very popular move among homeowners. The historic yet somehow fresh appeal of solid wood underfoot can be nigh irresistible. Whether you are remodeling and just discovered solid wood beneath that old musty carpet or you’re seriously considering a change, following is your extensive resource for all things hardwood floor. Enjoy.
