What Types of Wood Are Used to Construct Hardwood Flooring?


Hardwood flooring is made from various domestic and exotic kinds of wood, making your options as diverse as the world’s forests.


Among the popular hardwood species are:


  • Maple

  • Red Oak

  • White Oak

  • Bamboo 

  • Hickory 

  • Cherry 


One thing to always bear in mind: each individual hardwood species has different levels of hardness, so choose with care. Additionally, each hardwood type has distinctive features, like grain patterns.


What’s the Difference Between Solid or Engineered Hardwood?


Today there are two prominent hardwood flooring families: engineered hardwood flooring and solid hardwood flooring. Although they’re impossible to tell apart, there are some critical distinctions to consider.


  • Engineered hardwood flooring is a manufactured floor made with genuine wood layers. On the surface, it looks identical to solid hardwood. However, its compressed build and dense, cross-grains make it significantly hardier. Engineered hardwood floors can manage humidity and moisture and can be installed below grade, making it the most popular option for the Sunshine State.


  • Solid hardwood flooring is the original way to “hardwood.” Solid hardwood adds value and beauty and is made from solid planks of natural wood but needs to be handled with care. It cannot be installed below grade and excessive moisture will cause damage. Solid hardwood flooring can be refinished repeatedly.


Prepare For Your Hardwood Flooring Installation

If you’re planning for new hardwood flooring, professional flooring installation is your best option. Hardwood installation is a precise process best left to master craftsmen.  Additionally, your product warranty most likely requires it to ensure future coverage should damage occur down the road.
