Beyond the styles available, consider which hardwood species you’re most drawn to.
There are exotic and domestic tree species used to make hardwood flooring. Our most popular options include:
Each hardwood species looks and performs differently in various environments. Hardwood types vary in hardness levels and their ability to resist moisture. They also boast distinct colors, grain patterns, and other characteristics. Be sure to do your research to make sure your chosen wood species will fare fine in your specific space.
Wood is a natural material that will expand when the air is moist and humid and shrink after drying out.
Having hardwood floors means being dedicated to managing humidity indoors. Even floors that have been stained or painted will respond to humid conditions, so its important that your installers leave spaces between the planks for them to expand or shrink as the weather changes. Otherwise, your new floors will soon cup, buckle, or even warp!
A consistent relative humidity level is recommended to keep your hardwood healthy. Using air conditioners and dehumidifiers are one way to keep things stable in your home.
Modern hardwood flooring can be either solid or engineered construction.
YES! Meet your new flooring favorite: waterproof engineered hardwood flooring.
Waterproof engineered hardwood floors are fortified with a resilient core and thicker surface for full protection. Designed especially for humid climates, waterproof hardwood flooring is the right fit for families. It’s great for homes with lots of indoor pets and comes in as many styles as all the other hardwood types.
Choose wisely and plan accordingly before you install hardwood floors.
