Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo flooring is a popular and great option because of its durability and how eco-friendly it is. Bamboo is a very sustainable option since bamboo is a type of grass; it grows back at a rapid pace. There are other reasons why many homeowners appreciate bamboo flooring over other hardwood floorings:

  • Easy to maintain– Bamboo does not require a lot of maintenance. Bamboo requires daily sweeping and vacuuming.
  • Durable– Bamboo is amongst the most durable flooring. Especially with pets such as cats and dogs, your floors can get scratched very easily. With bamboo, it can handle high traffic areas very well.
  • Affordability – Since bamboo can be found all over the world and is a sustainable source, it is more comfortable and more affordable for the contractor and homeowner to install.
  • Aesthetic – When you are looking to install or upgrade your hardwood floors, you want it to match the style of your home. Bamboo is a beautiful-looking wood. It’s look natural and sleek, with the ability to come in many different colors and styles.

Pine Flooring

Pine may not be as popular as it once was, but many of our Washington, DC area customers love pine and choose to have it installed into their homes. At AG Construction, we offer pine installation for our homeowners. In comparison to bamboo, it is a softer wood that will dent and scratch more easily. There are several benefits to pine wood:

  • Easy Installation – Pine is easier to install since it is long and wide. The time for installation is significantly less than with other woods.
  • Rustic Style – Pine was once used as siding and to build interior walls. Now, this beautiful wood can bring out a rustic and rural style.
  • Multiple Choices – With pine flooring, there are two main types of pine used: eastern white pine and heart of pine. For eastern white pine, you will get a lighter look in coloring. With heart of pine, your look will be darker and more of a New England style.
  • Age – Like the best things in life, pine flooring gets better with age. Even though it is prone to scratches and dents, it will add character to your flooring. Pine flooring will also harden over time, making the chances of dents and scratches less likely to happen.

Heart of Pine Flooring

Since pine trees used to grow in extremely tall sizes, the tree formed heartwood. This is where heart of pine’s name came from. The heartwood of a pine tree is a darker colored pine that is very durable and resistant to decay. Heart of pine is hard to come by since you have to reclaim the old heart of pine wood for your floor. With this method, it is a sustainable option for your home. There are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing heart of pine for your home:

  • Understanding heart of pine – Heart of pine can sometimes be confused with similar types of pine from other parts of the tree, such as shortleaf pine, loblolly pine, and slash pine – but they are not the same thing. Heart of pine comes from the heartwood, while these other types come from different parts of the tree.
  • Know the date to look for – Look for pre-1920s timber. The pine that was logged and sold after the 1920s is a lower-grade material. Timber that is claimed before the 1920s will be the best quality.
  • Tighter growth rings – The tighter the growth rings, the denser the wood will be. If you want traditional quarter-sawn pine flooring, you’ll want rings that are an eighth of an inch to an inch apart.

  • Durability ­– It is the densest wood on the market, which makes it great for a home with high traffic. Walnut lasts quite a long time, which is why it is considered an excellent investment for your home.
  • Visually Stunning ­– Walnut gives an element of luxury and elegance, which is why it is trendy for homeowners. Like a fine wine, it gets more visually appealing as it develops a lustrous patina.
  • Easy to maintain – Walnut flooring does not trap dust or dirt, is resistant to water, mold, and bugs, and maintains its beauty throughout years of cleaning. Walnut is one of the few floors that you can mop without potentially damaging it.
