The Big Mystery

What are the odds that your home is hiding a hardwood floor? It all depends on the vintage of the home and the specifications to which your home was originally built. Carpet became a huge deal when the automation of manufacturing became accessible to everyone. During this time, many hardwood floors were covered up with carpeting and forgotten. Modern comforts that arose in the 50’s gave way to the classic beauty of hardwood flooring. It is almost enough to make a homeowner cry when they pull back the carpet and the angels begin to sing, behold, a gorgeous oak floor!  

Not So Beautiful
