What Type of Woods Are Used In Hardwood Floors?

Which species of hardwood will fare best in your “native” habitat? There are no wrong answers. Hardwood flooring is now sourced from a wide range of domestic and exotic tree species, including:

One important note to remember: each hardwood species is utterly unique, and its performance abilities will vary.




What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

There are two hardwood flooring options to choose from: solid and engineered. There are differences between the two, and we can teach you a bit about each.




Hardwood Flooring & Humidity

Humidity can cause a world of problems for your hardwood if you don’t plan. Whether it’s too much or too little humidity the damage can be devastating. That’s why it’s important to take the appropriate precautions.

Choose the Wood Wisely| Certain hardwoods are more tolerant of moisture fluctuation, simple as that. Consider the natural moisture in the air around your home on average. People living in high humidity regions require flooring that’s more tolerant of excess moisture while those who live in dryer regions need to find woods that are more tolerant of low humidity levels. Since most of us experience variances in humidity throughout the year, consider using hardwoods that can handle both.


Invest in Professional Installation | A professional installation for your hardwood floors includes acclimating the boards to your home prior to installation to help prevent shrinking or swelling once they are installed.


Create an Environment Favorable for Wood Flooring | Use a humidifier alongside your fireplace in the winter, use exhaust fans to draw moisture out of kitchens and bathrooms, and practice routine maintenance to keep hardwood floors in excellent condition throughout the year.




Where Can I Install Hardwood Flooring?

Hardwood flooring isn’t your best bet in a kitchen or bathroom, but there are plenty of options to explore for the remainder of your home. Solid hardwood is best reserved for spaces with consistent climate control. Engineered hardwoods are much more flexible: they can even be installed below grade. Choose the latter if you have an active family or your home is moisture prone.
