Wood Flooring Guide

Solid wood flooring 
Solid wood flooring is a solid piece of wood from top to bottom. The thickness of solid wood flooring generally ranges from ¾” to 5/16”. One of the many benefits of solid wood flooring is it can be sanded and refinished many times. Solid wood flooring can be installed above or on grade.

Engineered wood floors
Engineered wood floors are wood floors that are manufactured using three to nine layers of different wood veneers. The sub layers can be of the same species or of different species. The grain of each layer runs in different directions, making it very stable. The wood will expand and contract less than solid wood flooring during changes in humidity and temperature. The top layer of engineered wood flooring is made from high-quality wood. Engineered flooring can only be sanded and finished a few times. Engineered wood flooring can be installed above, on or below grade.

Wood Species

Red Oak
Red oak hardwood flooring is reddish in color with a coarse grain, it’s a stiff and dense wood that resists wear, but not as well as white oak.

White Oak
White oak hardwood flooring is brown in color but can have a grayish cast. The grain is similar to red oak, with more burls and swirls. It is harder and more durable than red oak.

Birch hardwood flooring ranges in color from light yellow to dark brownish red. It’s softer than red oak, but is still a strong wood.

Beech hardwood flooring is reddish brown color and a very consistent grain. It is quite durable and has excellent shock resistance.

Pine hardwood flooring is yellowish brown color and contains a lot of swirls and knots. It has a natural resistance to insects and is about as hard as red oak.

Brazilian Cherry
Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring is among the most popular imported species in homes today. Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring is extraordinarily hard and can withstand heavy foot traffic. Also known as Jatoba, Brazilian Cherry is not actually a cherry species, but in appearance bears a striking similarity. When new, Brazilian Cherry’s color span a range of salmon pink to reddish brown with orange-yellow highlights and dark accent stripes. Over time, the highlights fade and the colors deepen and grow more uniform in rich shades of dark honeyed red, crimson and burgundy with charcoal striping. The intense coloring and depth of grain in aged exotic Brazilian Cherry hardwood flooring are the qualities that make it so desirable.

Kempas hardwood flooring is from Malaysia and Indonesia. It is decay resistant and acidic in nature. It is strong and can withstand a lot of wear and tear, and it is durable enough to handle the high traffic of a commercial setting.
