Why Choose Timber Flooring?

In the beginning, a timber floor costs more to install than some other options but there are so many benefits that they far outweigh the initial costs. The first great benefit of timber flooring: even in a climate like Brisbane, a timber floor can last as long as 100 years.

Compare that to carpet, which can last ten to fifteen years and look worse as time goes on. With minimal maintenance, a timber floor starts to look better because timber matures as the years go by. Timber floors are a lot easier to clean than carpets or tile. A soft brush or broom or even a light vacuum can keep timber flooring looking great. Occasionally, you may need to damp mop it.

Timber floors don’t harbor as many microbes as carpets do. One square metre of carpet can hold as many as 100,000 dust mites. Add fleas and dust to the equation and you have asthma and allergy sufferers going through a lot of misery. Carpets can also smell badly due to pets or spilt substances.

If your timber floor is scratched or worn after a few years, all you have to do is sand it and refinish it. You would have to replace a carpet and it would cost a lot more.

We haven’t even talked about the aesthetic yet. There is nothing quite like the look of a timber floor. While carpet and tile designs tend to change every year, the simplicity and natural aesthetic of a timber floor don’t change. They look the same as they may have 100 years ago but they still show up in some of the finest, most expensive homes in Australia.

In the past, timber floors were seen as “expensive” and something only the rich could have. Nowadays, thanks to advances in manufacturing technology, timber flooring can be bought for a reasonable price. In a place like Narangba Timbers, where we provide the best timber at the lowest prices, you will be surprised how little you will pay for a timber floor.

While tile and stone have been used instead of carpeting and supply a lot of the benefits that timber does, they don’t have the same feel or warmth as a timber floor. Homebuyers don’t seem to think so either, as homes with timber floors command higher sale prices than homes with carpeting.

When it comes to preserving the environment and fighting global warming, timber floors win hands down over other types of floors. Timber stores carbon throughout its entire lifespan. Other floors have carbon footprints at least five times as large as timber floors do. In addition, timber is a natural insulator which helps keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Ultimately, timber costs a little more up front but more than compensates for the initial costs due to all of the benefits it provides, both financially and aesthetically. Timber flooring is still as popular in Brisbane as it ever was and there is no end in sight.
