1) Wood Floors are Guaranteed to Scratch
Flooring Pro Guys understands that there are various finishes that manufacturers put on wood flooring to make them more scratch resistant. The most popular finish these days is Aluminum Oxide. Wood flooring also typically comes with a wear warranty from 5 to 50 years in length. Wear warranties, however, usually only guarantee that a wood's veneer won't wear completely through. There are no anti-scratch warranties in the wood flooring business. All wood floors, no matter the finish treatment or quality of the wood, will be susceptible to surface scratching.
2) Wood Floors are Guaranteed to Indent
Flooring Pro Guys explains wood floors are by no means a soft product, but they may be susceptible to denting from heavy use or drops. No wood flooring is dent-proof, but different species of wood do have different degrees of hardness. The Janka Test is used to measure the hardness of a species of wood. Using this test, wood species are given a score based upon the force required to embed a steel ball into the wood. It is said that the higher the score, the better the species of wood is at withstanding denting and wear.
3) Wood Floors are Guaranteed to Age
Aging with most floor coverings typically relates to how a floor loses its luster over time due to wear and tear on the floor. If Flooring Pro Guys were to say, "Your carpet has aged", you would think it was time to get new carpet. However, one of most unique attributes of wood flooring is its ability to actually look better with age. Wood floors already come with a lot of natural character and beauty.
These are all nice attributes, but what I really want to touch on in this section is the photo-sensitivity of wood flooring. Wood tends to change color over time when exposed to sunlight. In fact, some wood floors can take up to a year and a half to mature into full color. Other floor coverings, on the other hand, might be vulnerable to fading or discoloring when exposed to prolonged sunlight.
4) Wood Floors are guaranteed to be affected by Moisture
Flooring Pro Guys knows wood floors are extremely sensitive to moisture. That includes changes in surface moisture, subfloor moisture, and humidity. Damages from moisture related problems can result in wood planks cracking, cupping, or buckling. It is important to hire an expert installation team that is familiar with wood and its reaction to moisture.
