The Benefits of Birch Hardwood Flooring

Birch floors are a great investment for any home. Consider the numerous benefits this hardwood species has to offer:

  • Birch is durable. The hardest varieties of birch are resistant to scratching, denting, cracking, splitting, and other signs of wear and tear. If you install this hardwood flooring in your home, you can expect it to last decades.
  • Birch has color variations. Different shades of birch are available to meet your aesthetic tastes. Some floors even showcase the beautiful contrasting colors of the birch tree’s sapwood and heartwood. This striking appearance makes birch highly desirable to many homeowners.
  • Birch is easy to work with. This hardwood has a straight, tight grain, which makes it easy to sand. It also absorbs wood stain easily to produce an even finish. The tight grain makes for easy installation as well because the boards grip the nails nicely.
  • Birch is reasonably priced. Birch hardwood floors are comparable in cost to other types of hardwood, such as oak flooring, walnut flooring, maple flooring, and others. The ease of installation helps keep labor costs down as well.
  • Birch requires little maintenance. As with other types of hardwood, birch is easy to maintain. The best way to keep your floor looking great is to sweep it regularly. This removes dirt and sand particles that could scratch the floor over time.
  • Birch is relatively eco-friendly. Hardwood is typically not the most environmentally conscious flooring choice, but birch is different. Considered a pioneer species, birch grows rapidly in open areas that have experienced major calamities, such as forest fires. Since birch must be thinned to make room for slower-growing species, you can feel good about using it as the flooring in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions About Birch Floors

What are the different types of birch flooring?

There are several species of birch. The varieties most often used for home flooring include paper birch, yellow birch, and sweet birch. A hardwood flooring expert can help you decide which option is right for your home.

Can I refinish my birch floors?

The number of times you can refinish hardwood flooring depends on whether you install engineered or solid hardwood. While more affordable, engineered wood can only be refinished a time or two. On the other hand, solid hardwood can be refinished four to six times throughout its lifetime.

Can I install birch hardwood floors in the basement?

This is not recommended. The high moisture level below grade is detrimental to all types of hardwood, so it’s best to install this type of flooring on the ground floor or above.
