Hard wood

Hard woods are a type of wood derived from trees with a dense, hard texture and grain.

What is it?

Hard woods are a type of wood derived from trees with a dense, hard texture and grain. This type of wood is prized for its durability and strength, making it an ideal choice for a variety of projects, from furniture construction to flooring. Hard woods also offer greater fire resistance and can last longer than softer woods, making them a great investment.

Hard woods generally come from angiosperm trees, meaning trees that produce flowers and fruits. Examples of hard woods include maple, oak, walnut and cherry, among others. Each wood has its own distinctive color, grain pattern and density, making it a unique choice for any project. Hard woods tend to be more expensive than their softer counterparts, however, the longevity of hard woods can often offset the difference in cost.

What are the benefits?

Hardwood has long been treasured for its durability, elegance, and longevity. It has been used for centuries to make furniture, flooring, and other items that will last many years. The benefits of hardwood are numerous, and those that invest in it are sure to reap the rewards.

Hardwood is resistant to wear and tear and can last for decades, even centuries, when properly cared for. Its natural beauty is unrivaled and its unique grain pattern is a charming addition to any home or business. Unlike many other choices of flooring and furniture, it does not fade or discolor over time, but rather gains a deeper color and beauty that only increases with age. It is an investment that you can be sure will have a long-term return.

Hardwood is also incredibly easy to care for and maintain. It is highly resistant to moisture, making water spills and pet accidents much easier to clean up than with other types of wood. It also has natural fire resistance and can help protect against fires. Hardwood is also hypoallergenic, making it an ideal choice for those with allergies.
