Wide Plank Hardwood Floors Make A Nice Impression
When Buying Wide Planks Consider This.
There are a few things to consider when purchasing wide plank hardwoods. The first thing is the size of the the room. If your room is small lets say a 10 x 10 and you are going to pack it with a lot of furniture, you will cover up the most of the wood floor and will not be able to enjoy the beauty of the floor widths.
Secondly the price you are going to pay for the wide planks is more. Most wide plank wood floors cost around $7.00 - $10.00 dollars a square foot materials only and some even more, versus the 5" planks at around $3.99 - $7.00 material only. The price for the wider planks is twice the amount you would regularly pay for the more narrow planks.
The cost to make the wider planks is more since the logs yield less square feet per cut. It takes more logs to make the wider cuts. All cuts are face sawn.
