Types of Hardwood Flooring
There are many types of hardwood flooring out there, but what type is right for your home?
When you think of hardwood flooring, you most likely think of solid hardwood. These planks have been milled out of 3/4″ solid wood with a tongue and groove. Once installed they are sanded and finished to the desired color and sheen. But they can also come in pre-finished flooring as well.
There are literally 100’s of species of solid hardwood out there. So it is important to know which is right for your style and more importantly, which ones are right for our dry climate.
We see domestic species such as Red and White Oak, Hickory, Maple, and Ash providing style and beauty as well as performing well in our climate.

Engineered hardwood flooring is real wood flooring that has been manufactured for strength and durability. Because of their construction, they are also an eco-friendly option.
Most engineered hardwood is constructed using multiple layers of wood that are laminated together in an alternating grain pattern. This gives the core incredible strength and stability. The wear layer (top layer) can be milled out of almost any species, including some exotic ones.
Some engineered floors even come in textured surfaces like wire-brushed or hand-scraped looks.
