Types of Wood

Harvested from many different types of tree species, both domestic and exotic, there are many ways to enjoy hardwood flooring. Options include such species as mahogany, pine, maple, birch, cherry, and oak, with each species offering unique character traits and strength levels.

Solid Hardwood vs. Engineered Hardwood

Solid hardwood, the original form of hardwood, boasts a simple construction comprised of solid wooden planks. Showcasing the natural character of your wood, solid hardwood adds value and distinction. It can be refinished over and over again. Engineered hardwood looks a lot similar, but is actually comprised of up to 7 layers of wooden veneers. These planks are more durable and affordable, and are also better suited for humid climates.

Where to Install Hardwood

Hardwood flooring is undoubtedly beautiful, but should always be handled with care.

Solid hardwood, for instance, should only be installed in rooms that stay cool and dry. It can never be installed below grade. Offering much more flexibility, engineered hardwood can go in all levels of the home, in your hallway, and on stairs. Engineered hardwood fares better in humidity and is extra dense and durable. As a general rule of thumb, hardwood flooring isn’t recommended for kitchens and bathrooms.
