Mention hardwood floors and watch a homebuyer's eyes light up. What makes wood floors so desirable?

Hardwood floors are unmatched for their beauty, durability, and ease of maintenance, so it's no surprise that the demand for hardwood has always been strong. In recent years that demand has been fueled by the availability of more types of wood, including exotic species such as Brazilian cherry, as well as engineered woods.

This professional-level resource covers every aspect of installing residential wood flooring including:

  • Estimating and preparing the job site
  • Sanding and finishing
  • Repairs and maintenance
