Hardwood flooring is the use of various wood species such as cherry, red oak, white oak, maple, hickory, pecan, or white ash as flooring. Hardwood flooring is considered one of the more prestigious and elegant options for flooring because of the use of authentic hardwood. The authenticity of the material translates to a higher price compared to other products created to imitate hardwood such as laminate, bamboo, or vinyl flooring.
There are two types of classification for hardwood flooring in the industry – solid wood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring. Solid wood flooring is made from planks of wood coming from a single piece of timber. These come in different sizes depending on the wood specie from which it comes from. On the other hand, engineered hardwood flooring is made from planks with top layers of hardwood and a core or substrate of fiberboard.
Solid wood flooring has more limitations compared to engineered hardwood flooring. Solid wood is prone to gapping and cupping since it has been cut from one timber. Installation is also more difficult as it can’t be installed in basements, over concrete, or any area with radiant heating. Meanwhile, engineered hardwood can be installed floating and is more durable to the effects of the environment.
Any home or structure endowed with hardwood floors is considered to be far more prestigious than those installed with other materials. Hardwood floors are the cream of the crop and give a fantastic look to any room with the natural grains and finish of real wood.
