When the early settlers built their log cabins and then their wood frame houses, they used the hardwood that was abundant in the area for their flooring. Many homes still standing today that are 100 years old or more, still have their original hardwood flooring. Yes, it may have been sanded and refinished over the years, but the beauty and warmth remains.
Those who are building new homes and condominiums, or who are redecorating existing homes, can guarantee their children and grandchildren a beautiful floor when they inherit the home. HVAC units, hot water heaters, refrigerators and microwaves will be replaced many times over. But the hardwood floors will remain a steady friend from decade to decade.
