Advantages & Disadvantages

Solid hardwood floors are stylish, adaptable, and very sturdy, so having well-maintained solid wood floors in your home will definitely improve its resell value. Additionally, solid hardwood flooring can be re-sanded and refinished multiple times to refresh its look without losing quality. This means that solid wood floors have the potential for a very long life.On the other hand, solid hardwood can be susceptible to swelling and warping if it is installed in areas with high levels of moisture.
