Cedar Park HardwoodHickory hardwood flooring is a popular type of hardwood in the greater Cedar Park, Georgetown, Leander TX areas and is known for its durability and design versatility. Hickory is a beautiful and unique hardwood that definitely deserves your consideration. Learn more about the pros and cons below!

Pros

Hickory hardwood is made from Hickory trees and is an extremely durable hardwood option, coming in at 1820 on the Janka hardness scale. It’s a great option for rooms that will receive high levels of foot traffic because it can sustain dents and scratches better than a lot of other hardwoods.

It’s a very versatile hardwood option as well. It can take different stains and finishes and look great in any room. Hickory has a highly varied grain that results in a range of light and dark hues in a single piece of flooring.

Cons

Because hickory is such a durable hardwood, it is not recommended that homeowners try to install it on their own. It is very difficult to saw, sand, and nail even with power tools. Luckily, the professionals at Floor Coverings International Williamson County complete your new flooring project from start to finish, so this won’t be a problem!

While all hardwood is susceptible to moisture and will expand and contract over time, hickory is less stable when exposed to liquids. Make sure to clean up spills right away.
