Solid hardwood is made of – yep, you guessed it – solid wood. As the name suggests, solid hardwood is as durable as it gets, with the advantage of an incredibly long lifespan. As previously stated, solid wood flooring comes in a variety of looks and finishes, and it can be refinished multiple times throughout the year. However, solid hardwood is more susceptible to warping, especially in our region where temperatures fluctuate. We recommend purchasing a humidifier for use during the dry, winter months. This will ensure a healthy hardwood floor for many years to come!
