Hardwood floors in Vancouver
Hardwood flooring is made up of pieces of wood and comes in a wide variety of sizes that can simplify installation, reducing labor costs. For example, it may be possible to glue hardwood directly to a base or it may be pre-attached to slats.
Why Choose Hardwood Flooring for Renovations Strata
The first benefit we found is the aesthetics of hardwood flooring. The beauty of these floors is undeniable and the neutral color blends well with different decor schemes. Plus, while the price of real hardwood is a little daunting, there are beautiful synthetic hardwood floors that mimic the finish of hardwood and offer greater strength and durability. Another saving consideration is that wood is a powerful thermal insulator, protecting spaces from heat and cold, which can lead to cost savings.
Hardwood is also comfortable. It’s barefoot fun, all season long, bringing beauty and comfort to all kinds of spaces. For allergy sufferers, hardwood is more hygienic: it does not harbor dust and allergens like carpets. In addition, cleaning can be done with a vacuum cleaner or dust mop.
As a durable option, hardwood floors and laminate alternatives tend to be quite durable. Natural hardwoods can even be sanded and refinished, depending on thickness.
Of course, in condominiums, there are special considerations that must come into play. Hardwoods and even laminate can be more expensive in terms of initial investment and installation. To avoid buffer noises in stacked strata units, a good thick undercoat is essential. Unless it is carpet we must consider an acceptable noise reduction underlay for strata as residents are strict with noise.
Wood and laminate floors are also sensitive to water and can fade with exposure to sunlight, so it is important to understand the type and quality of the product before investing. Genuine hardwood will also need to be sanded every 9-10 years for optimum beauty.
