Maple hardwood flooring in AustinIf you’re wondering about what kind of hardwood flooring you might want to install in your Austin home, make sure that you consider maple. This attractive, durable, and timeless hardwood will perform well for decades and remain classic through changing trends.

Here are few of the reasons why our Floor Coverings International Austin experts love maple hardwood flooring:

Beautiful Honey Blonde Appearance

The look of maple hardwood varies based on the quality of the wood. A high-grade maple wood typically has a dense grain that results in even finish, while some lower grade maple features dark grains and knots for a more rustic look. You can also decide whether you prefer the natural, unstained color of maple or a darker stained version.

Durability that Resists Scratches and Dents

Maple hardwood floors can last for decades with proper care and maintenance, making them a worthwhile investment for your home.  Your maple hardwood flooring will stand up to years of wear and tear. Just remember to quickly wipe up spills, and periodically sweep or vacuum your floors. When the wood starts to look worn down, you can have it refinished so it will look new again and be ready for many more years of use.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

A properly installed maple floor only requires sweeping and cleaning with a gentle wood cleaner. Any cracks or dings can be fixed with wood putty and matching stain to return it to like-new appearance with little effort and expense. As time goes by and your friends are buying new floors, your maple hardwood floors will continue to last.
