What Is Hardwood Flooring?


Hardwood flooring is made with natural materials and comes in a variety of colors, species, and types for you to choose from. If you’re not sure which type of hardwood is right for you or where to install your flooring, keep reading for helpful guidelines


Best Species of Hardwood

Just like any other flooring, hardwood comes in an assortment of options.


Choose a domestic or exotic wood species that fits your design taste and functional needs. For instance, oak is solid, scratch-resistant, and has uniform grain patterns. In contrast, hickory is known for its dynamic grain patterns and shading.


Other popular wood species we offer include:



Styling Your Hardwood Floor

In addition to the species, you can also choose different plank textures, sizes, and gloss levels. From wide plank, weathered dark wood that gives your floor a reclaimed look to bright, airy, and smooth light wood that’s expansive and modern, we have many different styles to choose from.


What is Engineered Hardwood?

Solid and engineered hardwoods are the two main types of wood flooring. Here’s a closer look at these two types of hardwood and their benefits.




Can Hardwood Flooring Handle Humidity?

All hardwoods are affected by humidity, even engineered hardwoods.


Like many natural materials, hardwood has the potential to change when exposed to humidity. Hardwood floors will eventually swell when exposed to humid air. Yet the specific amount of swelling differs according to a variety of factors.


Careful, consistent climate control is essential to let your hardwood have a long, happy life. We recommend using a hygrometer to measure your indoor humidity levels. Use a humidifier during dry months and a dehumidifier during humid bouts to keep your wood from warping.


Where Can I Install Hardwood Floors?

Generally, you do not want to install real wood flooring in bathrooms or other high-moisture spaces where spills and humidity are common.

Most hardwood planks can be installed in a variety of areas, including:



We proudly provide professional installation services and during installation, we leave space between your floorboards so they can naturally expand and contract without warping due to moisture.
