Answering your Wood Flooring Questions

Are you considering high-quality wood flooring for your home but have questions about the process? Look no further! At Apex Wood Floors, we understand that choosing the perfect flooring for your space can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you make informed decisions and achieve the wood flooring of your dreams.

1. How does humidity affect hardwood floors?

Humidity plays a crucial role in the health and condition of hardwood floors. Fluctuations in humidity levels can cause wood to expand and contract, leading to issues such as cupping, crowning, and warping. It’s essential to maintain consistent indoor humidity levels to prevent damage to your wood flooring.

2. What is the best way to clean hardwood floors?

Proper maintenance is key to preserving the beauty of hardwood floors. We recommend using a pH-neutral cleaner and a soft microfiber mop to remove dirt and debris gently. Avoid using harsh chemicals or excessive water, as they can damage the wood finish.

3. What are the differences between prefinished and unfinished wood flooring?

Prefinished wood flooring comes with a factory-applied finish, offering convenience and durability. On the other hand, unfinished wood flooring allows for customization, as the finish is applied on-site. Both options have their advantages, depending on your preferences and project requirements.

4. What is the difference between herringbone and chevron wood flooring patterns?

Herringbone and chevron are classic wood flooring patterns that add elegance and visual interest to any space. Herringbone features a staggered zigzag layout, while chevron offers a continuous V-shaped pattern. Each pattern has its unique charm, so choose based on your design aesthetic and personal preference.

5. How long does it take to install high-quality wood flooring?

The installation timeline for high-quality wood flooring depends on various factors, including the size of the project, the type of wood flooring chosen, and any customization requirements. Our team will work closely with you to develop a timeline that meets your needs and ensures a seamless installation process.

6. What is the expected lead time for custom wood flooring orders?

Custom wood flooring orders typically have a lead time of 8-12 weeks, depending on the complexity of the project and the availability of materials. We strive to provide accurate lead time estimates and keep you informed throughout the process to ensure timely delivery of your custom flooring.
