The Cons Of Pine Flooring

The perfect flooring for your home all depends on what you need those floors to do and the environment they are going to be in. As discussed, pine flooring is a brilliant and beautiful option however it does not work best in all environments. For instance, pine flooring is more susceptible to dents, scratches and water damage and would work well in a less traffic-heavy part of your home such as a bedroom.


Another disadvantage to pine flooring is that it needs to be maintained. Many customers like to strip the finish of their wood every few years and sand out any blemishes that may have appeared over time. However, whilst maintaining the floor may be a burden, the upside is that you get a floor that looks brand new again for a fraction of the price!
