You are left with nothing but an even, beautiful sheen free from grime and dirt. All of this adds up to making your floor look like it was just installed.

POPULAR HARDWOOD FLOOR SPECIES
One of the best aspects of a hardwood floor is the versatility it provides. If you’re installing new floors, then you have many species of wood to choose from. Below are a few of the more popular species in Monument today. If you don’t see something that interests you on the list, then give us a call, and we can set up an in-home consultation to discuss your ideas.
Over 200 subspecies of Red Oak are available to provide great variation in grain and color. This is a very popular choice, as Red Oak has great shock resistance and is resistant to scuffs and scratches.
This species is very hard and stiff. It’s also extremely strong and has great shock resistance. Yellow Birch, Paper Birch, and Sweet Birch are a few of the more popular subspecies. You will find that Yellow Birch is more often used for hardwood flooring.
This species of wood is most often used in bowling alleys and other athletic flooring. This is because it is extremely strong and resistant to abrasive wear.
Pine is soft, but fairly durable. Pine is often used for hardwood flooring, however, it is not as resistant to scuffs and abrasions as the harder varieties of wood. Because of this, it may not be appropriate for all applications.
Just like Red Oak, White Oak has a wide variety of grain and colors as well, although they are more subtle than those offered by Red Oak. It is harder and more durable than Red Oak as well.
FINISHES AND SHEENS
Whether you are refinishing or installing your hardwood floor, you will need to decide on which finish and sheen you want. When you think about which one fits your style the best, bear in mind that they each have pros and cons. It will be up to you to decide which finish or sheen fits your needs.
HARDWOOD FLOOR FINISHES
OIL BASED POLYURETHANE
Because this is such a popular choice, we are sure that you’ve seen these floors before. These are low cost and easy to apply. However, they also come with a high VOC signature, or large amounts of volatile organic compounds that can be dangerous. There’s also a relatively long drying time, so you have to be off of your floor probably longer than you want to be.
This option became popular because of environmentally friendly needs. They have lower VOC signatures then oil-based polyurethane, and they have a quicker drying time. Another bonus is that they don’t turn yellow over time like oil-based polyurethane does. You get a consistent color throughout the life of your floor.
HARDWOOD FLOOR SHEENS
The options you have here are similar to those that you have when you buy paint. How do you want your floor to look?
This type of sheen makes it look like there’s no sheen on your floor at all. It preserves the natural look of the wood. This is good for pet owners because it hides pet hair and scratches.
This is a very popular choice. It provides a warm glow and feel with very limited shine. You can tell that there is a sheen on the floor, however the reflection is very minimal. It’s not quite as easy to clean and maintain as matte is but it’s pretty close.
This sheen is a great option for older homes that would benefit from high reflection. With semi-gloss, the floor looks “thicker” than it does with matte or satin.
