Benefits of Hickory Hardwood

Durability

The durability and strength of hardwood floors is measured using the Janka Hardness Scale. With a ranking of 1820, hickory is one of the most durable styles of domestic hardwood floors. If your Cape Cod home is full of busy children and active pets, then hickory hardwood may be perfect for your home.

Easy Maintenance

We love the simple maintenance of hardwood floors. The smooth surface reduces the possibility of dust and dirt gathering. Other flooring styles can capture allergens and decrease the air quality in your home. However, sweeping is the only thing you need to do to clean hickory hardwood floors.

Cost & Value

Hardwood floors have a reputation for being expensive. Although hickory hardwood is not as affordable as wood-alternatives, like laminate, it has a remarkable value-over-time. Before starting a flooring project, it is important to think about the long-term effect of your flooring pick. Durable, long lasting flooring, like hickory, is an amazing investment.

Water Resistance

Unlike tile, the surface of hickory hardwood is not resistant to water damage. You should avoid installing the flooring in moisture-prone areas of your home, like bathrooms and laundry rooms. For a more water resistant alternative, consider installing engineered hickory hardwood floors in your home.
