Wood Types Influence Price

One great thing about hardwood floors is that there are so many wood types to choose from. However, not all hardwood is created equally. Oak, for example, is very popular due to its affordability and ease of installation. Other wood types, such as Brazilian Cherry Hardwood are more difficult to install and thus more expensive.

There are many factors that you should consider before purchasing the hardwood. Hardwood floors are a long-term investment – like any investment it is important that you take your time and do some research before jumping in.
