    Thanks for this post. I have a question about hardwood flooring. I have heard that hardwood flooring will buckle in the AZ heat. Is this true?

    As much as I love the look of marble, it’s hard on my ankles being on it all day. I LOVE hardwood, and will have it in my home someday!

    I like my tile floors in the winter because it’s so hot in Tucson in the summer. It does seem to make the house colder during the winter.

    My husband wanted marble on the floor in the entryway into our house. He went to Italy to pick it out, and then it was installed in the home here. Boy, was it beautiful, and care-free, too. I hadn’t thought about this in about 30 years! Now I have tile, which I love, and carpet which I hate! My favorite of all time, though, was the hard wood I had in my 50 year old home (the original hard wood, the kind they don’t make any more)!!

      To reuse old planks is a great idea Dov. Zero waste and cost effective. The bottom line is still to cool down the room temperature of the room during summer time. I could imagine how will that look like after installation if properly sanded and refinished. The look would be an old farmhouse with perfect wood flooring. Sometimes, we cannot deny that we are so attached and fell in love with our old house and we wanted to revive its beauty without altering its historical and original character. You can still bring in beautiful and unique flooring with your old planks.

    I love every aspect of remodeling and especially floors. They are the foundation to the look of the room and the feel and texture are nice (or not) to our feet!
