THE CHARACTERS OF WOOD

As a flooring material, wood is superior to vinyl or carpet, both practically. A solid wood floor is more than a covering: it adds strength and stability to the floor system. A one-inch thickness of wood has the same insulating value as 15 inches of concrete. Wood is durable and long-lasting–occasional sanding and refinishing essentially results in a brand-new floor. Wood floors don’t retain mildew or absorb dust.
