What Types of Hardwood Species Are Best



Did you know that not all types of hardwood are exactly alike?


Your new hardwood floor comes from trees- many different kinds of trees, in fact. Hardwoods can be either domestic or exotic in origin. Each tree species has its own unique features, grain patterns, strengths, and hardness levels.


We carry various hardwood species, including:



  • Hickory
  • White Oak
  • Oak
  • Red Maple
  • Maple
  • Birch
  • European White Oak


When choosing your hardwood floor, consider its rating on the Janka Hardness Scale: a helpful tool that rates each species’ hardness levels.


A harder type of tree species will fare better in busier spaces, so there aren’t any unpleasant surprises down the road.


Solid Hardwood Floors vs Engineered Hardwood Floors: Which Is Best for Me?


While they appear the same, solid hardwood floors and engineered hardwood floors have some distinct differences.


Here’s a closer look at these two types of hardwood:


  • Solid hardwood flooring is, just as its name describes, one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Thickness typically varies, but on average you can choose from ¾” or 5/16”. Solid hardwood performs best when installed above or on grade and can even be refinished!


  • Engineered hardwood flooring planks are made of multiple real wood veneers whose grains run in different directions to increase stability. This allows the floors to resist expanding and contracting during weather changes. Engineered flooring is best installed above, on, and below grade, so you can enjoy them on every level of your home!


Did you know? Some of our most requested plank sizes include 3” - 5”, with a thickness of ¾” for both solid and engineered planks.


Where Can I Install Hardwood Flooring?


In general, hardwood flooring is recommended for home settings where there isn't heavy foot traffic and moisture.


Popular areas of installation for solid hardwood floors include bedrooms and living rooms. Our engineered hardwood planks are a little more versatile when it comes to where they can be installed.


Since engineered hardwood can withstand moisture, you can install these planks in places like kitchens or finished basements.



What Do I Need to Do Before My Hardwood is Installed?



Before our flooring installers arrive, it’s important to be prepared for the big day!



Plan properly. Once you’ve chosen the perfect hardwood floor, it’s time to get ready. That means clearing your room and making sure your subfloor is clean, dry, and level.  


Make sure your interior climate is situated for the best results: you’ll want to keep it stable, with no drastic humidity or temperature changes in the days leading up to your installation. After all, your planks will need time to adjust to your space for a couple days before being installed.


We’ll then meet and discuss the plan. Now is the time to decide which direction you’d like your hardwood planks to go. Typically, hardwood is installed perpendicular to the floor joints.
