If you’ve been somewhere and seen timber flooring in the past and have now come to a time in your life when it’s time for you to get new flooring and are considering the same, what is there to know?
It is of the essence to know and select the best option, even though you may at first be tempted to pick out a colour and plank size that perfectly matches your home or workplace decor and get it fitted. To obtain the perfect flooring you will need to fully understand certain features about these beautiful wood floors and how they happen to act under certain conditions.
However, there are certain types of Australian wood which are extremely stable and expand and contracts significantly less than other varieties.
Which Room is it going to be installed?
Matters of Traffic
Along with having an awareness of dimensional stability, you must fully realise matters of foot traffic. Any heavy traffic areas should be fitted with the toughest wood possible, whilst those lower traffic spaces can have a softer type.
You will have to know that the toughest woods, will not necessarily also possess the best dimensional stability for your room, so understand that it is important to weigh everything out carefully.
And Yet another Option
Also, and in addition to the traditional hammer nailed down wood flooring, there is the option of what is known as “engineered hardwood”.
If you have anything that you want to know more about, just have a consult with a respectable flooring service in Melbourne and before long you will have an absolutely gorgeous looking floor smiling up at you!
