Benefits of Hardwood Flooring
There are many benefits to installing hardwood flooring. Read on as we explain why hardwood is durable, healthy, beautiful, low maintenance and always in style.
Hardwood floors are much more resistant to spills and stains than other flooring choices. They aren’t easily scraped, scratched, scuffed, or dented. If they are damaged, and this may happen especially in a high traffic area, they often can be simply repaired by sanding, smoothing, and refinishing. Our hardwood flooring also come with limited warranties. Read more about the warranties offered by our flooring partners: Armstrong, Bruce, and Goodfellow.
Hardwood floors do not have fibers, grout lines, or embossing that can trap allergens like carpet can. Therefore they are the best choice for people who have allergies and for those who would prefer healthier indoor air quality.
The addition of hardwood flooring to your home will add not only elegance but a certain “wow” factor. Wood floors actually make your rooms feel more warm and inviting.
Most hardwood floors only require weekly sweeping, dry mopping, or vacuuming to get rid of dust and dirt. Usually a deep cleaning is only necessary once a year.
Always in Style
Your decor may change throughout the years, but thankfully, hardwood goes with almost any decor. There’s no need to change your flooring if you decide to re-decorate.

What Is The Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood Flooring?
Graham’s and Son offers you the choice of solid or engineered hardwood flooring. Both types of hardwood flooring are warm and luxurious, but they are structurally different. The following chart gives a brief comparison of the two types of hardwood flooring.
Because engineered hardwood is designed with a multi-layer core running in opposite directions in alternating layers, it is structurally more stable than solid hardwood. This makes is a better choice for the extreme seasons in Canada, depending on where you are putting it in your home.
When Is Hardwood Flooring The Right Choice Over Tile Or Carpet?
If anyone in your family struggles with allergies, then hardwood flooring is definitely the better choice over carpet. It also won’t stain like carpet will when spills occur, and it is extremely durable and will almost never need replacing. It also adds value to your home. According to LivingDirect.com, a buyer will actually pay more for homes that have hardwood flooring as opposed to other floor treatments.
Hardwood is also a better choice over tile if you find yourself standing on it for long periods of time. Tile flooring can be very hard on your body whereas wood floors are much gentler.
