Maple Hardwood: Beautiful Flooring that’s Durable, Long Lasting, and Ideal for Commercial or Residential Applications
Maple hardwood is one of three of the most popular types of flooring. Along with oak and ash, maple gets its beauty from a somewhat unique feature, in that, it has more color variation. However, Maple contains smaller knots in the wood and is approximately 12 percent denser or harder than red oak. Its primary application is commercial and athletic use, being found in places such as school gymnasiums and bowling alleys.
Ranging in width from 3-1/4″ wide up to 4″, 5″ or 6″ widths, this great looking hardwood can also be used in residential homes and offices. Some retail establishments have Maple because it can easily withstand heavy foot traffic, and its resistance to marring.
Royal Wood Floors provides installation and care of this species, including Maple hardwood floor restoration and Maple hardwood floor refinishing. The company provides affordable, quality Maple wood floor refinishing. It likewise offers Maple floor restoration services to the Milwaukee area and beyond.
The Maple species not only features hardness and resistance to marring and indentation; it is long lasting flooring, lasting well over 100yrs. This hardwood flooring lasts from generation to generation. It also has ecological benefits in Wisconsin and other localities such as Nova Scotia, Quebec and southern Ontario, southeastern Manitoba, and Minnesota.
