Summer is here and it’s time to start thinking about renovations! With the warmer weather, we’ll be spending more and more time outside, so why not make sure the outside of your home is as attractive as the inside? The installation of hardwood floors in outdoor space, like a deck or patio, is a great way to add beauty to your home. Since stone and tile are expensive, and can be hard to repair if damaged, installing hardwood floors outside can actually be a great flooring option for your outdoor living space. Check out the best wood species for outdoor spaces below:
