Hardwood is a floor that transcends time. Hardwood floors last much longer than other floors because of the renewability factor. The new protective coatings are much stronger than they used to be, giving the wood floor the durability to withstand years of wear.
When flooring gets worn you usually replace it. With hardwood you have three options; you can use a refresher to liven it up, you can lightly sand and recoat with urethane to bring back the original luster, or you can completely sand and refinish the surface to make the floor look brand-new. Hardwood floors come in a variety of colors from a light natural maple to a rich red cherry. Other woods include ash, oak, walnut, beech, and pecan.
