Which Types of Wood Are Used for Hardwood Floors?


As you begin shopping for the right hardwood flooring, the first thing to decide is what kind of species you prefer.


There is a wide array of hardwood species available on the market, including options from domestic hardwood forests, as well as exotics from all over the globe.


Popular hardwood species include:


  • Maple
  • Pine
  • Birch
  • Oak
  • Hickory
  • Cherry


If you’re interested in eco-friendly flooring, our experts can show you which products are certified for their sustainability.


Each tree species has distinct characteristics, like grain pattern, color, and hardness levels. The age that the tree was harvested at also helps determine these features.


What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

One of the most significant choices you’ll make is between solid and engineered hardwood flooring.


While both look the same from the surface level and are made of real wood, they each offer different performance features.


  • Engineered hardwood flooring is made to look and feel identical to its solid counterpart, with some major difference worth contemplating. Build in multiple layers of hardwood veneers, engineered hardwood planks are pressed together to create durable cross-layers. This floor fares well in higher levels of humidity since it prevents contraction and expansion. Engineered hardwood can be installed in all levels of your home: even in spaces that fall below grade. There are even fully waterproof options available!
  • Solid hardwood flooring is the traditional method of milling and installing a wooden floor. Solid hardwood planks are made from one single, solid hunk of wood. Solid hardwood is stunning to behold and can add significant value to your property. However, this fine flooring isn’t always the best fit. It doesn’t fare well in extreme climates or moisture and cannot be installed below grade. Solid hardwood is best reserved for rooms such as living rooms and bedrooms. It can be refinished many times over its lifetime, and if properly installed and maintained, can last for generations.


Planning Your Hardwood Floor Installation

Hardwood flooring is tricky to install, but our professional installers know how to handle those details.


Professional installers will prepare the subfloor to ensure your home is ready for installation by making sure it is dry, flat, and free of imperfections. We also do an in-home measure and moisture test before installation begins.


Moisture testing is crucial because any lingering moisture could cause long-term damages. 


Installers also leave a gap between your floors and the baseboards to allow room for the wood to naturally adjust to your home, and the changing humidity due to the different seasons.


How Is Hardwood Flooring Installed?


Depending on the hardwood flooring you choose, various installation methods might be used by our team.


  • Engineered hardwood flooring comes in floating floor options. These planks require no adhesive or nails during installation and simply click together.


  • Solid hardwood flooring needs to be nailed or glued down to the subfloor, as to ensure the planks will not shift with use.
