Is solid hardwood flooring for you?

Is solid hardwood flooring for you?

Solid hardwood is one of the most durable flooring materials you can purchase. If you quickly remove occasional spills, dirt, and debris that might scratch the surface, the floor will retain its like-new look and never need to be refinished.

Anthony's World of Floors in Port Washington, New York, in business since 1972, is the place to find the latest solid hardwood flooring styles.


Prefinished and unfinished solid hardwood is nailed to a wood subfloor in moisture-free spaces. If raw wood is finished in your home, expect the installation process to take about two weeks, which includes time for the acclimation of planks to their new environment.

Your new floor will have a flush look, or if you choose prefinished planks, the floor will have a beveled look.

Textured wood

If you're concerned about scratches and scuffs on your wood flooring because you have children or pets, choose textured planks rather than those with smooth surfaces.

A wire-brushed style features light texturing, while a handscraped type displays deeper and more pronounced texturing. Distressed wood that looks weathered will also hide minor imperfections.

Additional value

Hardwood is home buyers' favorite flooring material, so homeowners can't go wrong by choosing the classic floor covering. Surveys have repeatedly shown that homes sell more quickly and for a higher price when they feature these wood floors.

Presently, wood floors that are very light or very dark in color are the most popular.
