Benefits and Drawbacks of Hickory Flooring
As noted above, the durability of hickory compared to some other hardwoods cannot be overstated. It can be used in high traffic areas of your home or business since it is strong and rigid, which makes for a reliable flooring choice.
As with other wood floors, hickory flooring requires little maintenance beyond dust mopping as needed to keep dust from accumulating on its surface. Be sure to keep water off the surface of hickory floors to keep them from warping.
Something unique about hickory flooring is its knots and imperfections, which makes it a fantastic candidate for a handscaped finish (although it will look just as nice with a traditional smooth finish). Some people are turned off by this texture, so make sure you look at samples to make sure you’ll be happy with it in your home.
Common trouble with most hardwood floors is they tend to expand and contract with humidity’s fluctuations, which is why it is not often you see hardwood floors in extremely humid areas. The good news is that engineered hardwood flooring exists, which solves this problem with processed wood that does not respond to humidity.
