How To Choose The Best Hardwood Flooring For Your Newmarket Home

Hardwood Flooring NewmarketIf you’re looking for the best hardwood flooring in Newmarket, the first and best piece of advice we offer all our clients – find out what’s most important to you.  Whether its durability, style or affordability, Robar Flooring has a type of hardwood to best suit your Newmarket home and help create your dream home.

Our experts point out three important factors to consider when choosing the right type of hardwood flooring to suit your home:

1. Color

‘Exotic’ woods such as The Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba) and dark domestic coloured woods like the American dark walnut are highly durable options if you have little ones or a dog. Since these woods are naturally dark in colour and rarely stained, even if the floor is scratched it won’t expose a different colour underneath.

2. Grain

The advantage of choosing grainy woods such as ash or oak means that your hardwood flooring will camouflage dust and animal hair. These traditional wood options are durable, easy to look after and always in style.

3. Density

In simple terms, more dense wood equals heavier wood which equals fewer dents over time. However, be aware that higher density woods such as the Brazilian Cherry and Hard Maple also come with a slightly higher price tag.

Samples of hardwood floor installation

There are many options and possibilities when it comes to hardwood flooring and its installation. Few of the most common types include:

All of the above are either nailed or glued down on top of existing sub-floor. In condominiums or commercial properties where sub-floor consists of concrete, plywood is applied on top of the slab in order to allow for nailing of the floor. All glued down floors can be directly applied on top of the concrete. See diagrams below outlining different floor types, installation techniques as well as examples of transition and finishing trims commonly used.
