Traditional solid hardwood floors are comprised of a single piece of wood with tongue and groove sides. Most come unfinished, but there are many pre-finished 3/4" solid hardwood floors.
There are various options when it comes to hardwood flooring:
- Solid Oak: Oak is typically used to create solid unfinished wood floors. There are several different qualities to choose from — be aware of what you’re buying.
- Engineered Hardwood Flooring: Engineered wood flooring has become a extremely popular hardwood flooring type. Mainly because it can be used in many areas of the home where solid hardwood is not recommended. You can find engineered wood floors in many different types of wood species, both domestic and exotic hardwoods.
- Bamboo Wood: Bamboo comes in different patterns and plank sizes to compliment a variety of decors, from casual to formal and contemporary to traditional. Like hardwood flooring, bamboo flooring is offered in both solid and engineered construction. It is installed with the same type installation methods and guidelines as wood flooring.
