Should we keep knocking on wood? Despite the fact that they are not easy to maintain, nothing spells sophistication more than this type of flooring.
There exist over 50 different species of wood to choose from. Homeowners often find themselves confused when selecting from a vast array of woods available in the market. Of course, presence of flaws like knots, wormholes or saw marks decreases the value. Each species has a different ideal hue and degree of grain uniformity, but as a rule of thumb, the fewer the flaws, the more consistent its colour and grain, the more expensive it is. Here's why this flooring never goes out of style.
SOLID HARDWOOD, STILL A FAVOURITE
“The looks, reliability, quality and grain work of a solid wood floor cannot be matched with any other flooring. However, one should ensure that the solid wood floor is processed and the moisture content is between eight per cent and 12 per cent. This can be measured through a moisture meter,” says Suresh Kumar Mansukhani, Country Manager, Indian Subcontinent, Junckers, adding, “Moisture level over 12 per cent is harmful as it allows huge expansion and contraction due to climatic conditions resulting in warpage of the flooring.”
