What Types of Wood Are Used in Hardwood Floors?

Each wood option offers unique shades and character, and they also feature different strength levels and wear resistance. The Janka hardness scale is a great model to refer to, measuring the hardness levels of each hardwood species to ensure the perfect match.



What’s the Difference Between Solid or Engineered Hardwood?

Did you know that not all hardwood flooring is quite the same? There are two distinct families to choose from.


  • Engineered Hardwood Flooring is made to go in places where solid hardwood isn’t possible, made to weather challenges. It’s crafted in multiple layers, with hardwood veneers and resins pressed together to form dense cross-grains. Engineered hardwood is a great match for California’s wet season since it doesn’t shrink or expand during bouts of humidity. It’s also comparatively affordable, and best of all, it can be installed below grade.


  • Solid Hardwood Flooring is the original, classic way to floor. Solid planks are each constructed from one single, solid piece of hardwood. Solid hardwood flooring is admired by traditionalists, and if properly situated and installed, it can last for generations. However, solid hardwood isn’t always your best bet in wet or humid settings. These heavy planks will become warped if exposed to regular moisture. On the bonus side, however, your properly situated solid hardwood can be refinished again; giving it immeasurable staying power and value that is well worth the investment and upkeep.


Planning Your Hardwood Flooring Installation

We are confident that we have a hardwood floor for you in our showroom.


Not only do we offer residential hardwood installation, but we also have businesses covered.


These multipurpose flooring products have certain limitations. You can install a hardwood floor in places like bedrooms, dens, and living rooms.
