What are the Different Types of Hardwood?


Hardwood floors are made from a range of wood species, with the most common being red and white oak. Maple is also a popular choice, although it can be more expensive. Other species include Birch, White Ash, and American Cherry. Each of these has different attributes like shock resistance and wood grain patterns. Many of them also change colors as they age. While the majority of hardwood floors are made from hardwood deciduous trees, there are also softwood coniferous trees that are used, such as Cypress and Southern Yellow Pine.


Why Choose Hardwood Floors?


Hardwood isn’t just beautiful but also an investment that adds value to your home. While the initial cost of genuine wood might be more expensive, with proper care and maintenance, most hardwood products last the life of a home. Hardwood is also hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and can be finished with a spill, stain, and abrasion-resistant surface that’s super tough.


Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood


There are two main types of hardwood: solid and engineered. Solid wood flooring is the more traditional option; it is one solid plank of wood. Its thickness and uniform construction gives you the ability to refinish it multiple times. Engineered hardwood is made up of multiple layers that are pressed together for increased stability from humidity and moisture. They can generally only be finished once or twice, although higher quality, thicker products may be finished up to seven times and last as long as solid hardwood.
