Wood Floor Depot of Westchester
Hardwood floors add value and comfort to your home or business. Hardwood flooring is manufactured from timber that is designed for use as flooring, for structural or aesthetic beauty and endurance. Nothing rivals the way wood warm ups a room, the classic good look, and wood flooring is ultimately more durable than most other products. Hardwood flooring, laminate floors and engineered wood floors can make your rooms or office feel modern and exciting! Hardwood floors can be used across all the rooms in your home. Hardwood flooring varies in price, installation, manufacturer and style. The Westchester Hardwood Floor Depot is here to help you make the right choice when selecting a hardwood floor. Solid hardwood floors are made of planks milled from a single piece of timber. Solid hardwood floors were originally used for structural purposes, being installed perpendicular to the wooden support beams of a building known as joists or bearers. With the increased use of concrete as a subfloor combined with solid wood’s inability to be installed directly over concrete, solid wood floors are now used almost exclusively for their appearance and durability.
Residential real estate agents say homes with hardwood floors sell faster and fetch higher prices, according to a nationwide survey commissioned by the National Wood Flooring Association. By a four-to-one margin, real estate agents said that a house with wood floors would sell faster than a house without hardwood floors. Some 90 percent of agents said a house with wood floors would bring a higher price. Choosing a species of wood involves more than selecting a color to match your décor. Other appearance-related attributes are important too, such as texture, grain, and cut. You will ultimately decide which type of wood and style of planking you want to add to enhance your home or business. Whatever you choose, hardwood floors add value to your home and improve your living environment.
