What Types of Hardwood Floor Species Are There?


Hardwood flooring varieties are as varied as the trees in the forest, with flooring made from both traditional and exotic species.


Some of the most popular hardwood species are:


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


How do you know which hardwood species is right for you? Consider your durability and maintenance requirements, along with looks and your budget.


A few things to consider: Certain species like oak and hickory are more durable, while other types, like birch and pine, are softer and more prone to scratches. Darker shades of hardwood mask imperfections, while lighter hues show blemishes quicker.  


Hardness levels also play an important role in how your floor will look, feel, and function. Refer to the Janka Hardness Scale to learn the hardness level of each tree species, and how it might fare in your home or business. Not sure where to start? Ask our experts.


What Is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?


Solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring look and feel alike same, but there are some particularly important differences to keep in mind.



  • Solid hardwood flooring is hardwood’s original format made from single, solid hunks of wood. It can be refinished repeatedly but needs to be overseen with care. It’s best installed in cool, dry spaces that aren’t moisture prone.
  • Engineered hardwood flooring is a better option for areas subject to moisture or heavy usage. Engineered hardwood is manufactured flooring made from up to seven layers of natural wood, plywood, and resin. It’s a denser material that can be used below grade.


Where Can I Install a Hardwood Floor?


Hardwood flooring performs best in climate-controlled, low-moisture areas.



Unless you’re working with a waterproof hardwood floor, avoid hardwood flooring in the kitchen and bathrooms. Constant moisture will cause your planks to swell or warp over the years.


Engineered hardwood flooring offers up a greater level of flexibility as it works great in finished basements and other areas previously off-limits to hardwood flooring.


Other popular spots for hardwood installation include:


  • Bedrooms
  • Living Rooms
  • Dining Rooms
  • Family Rooms
  • Playrooms
  • Hallways
  • Stairs
  • Entryways
  • Entertainment Rooms
  • Home Offices
  • Meeting Rooms
  • Small Retail Shops
  • Waiting Rooms
  • Libraries


Planning Your Hardwood Installation


Our team of flooring experts can not only help you choose the best hardwood, but they can also guide you through the installation process.


Should you install your own hardwood floor? In most cases, the answer is probably “NO!”


Why, you ask? Well, hardwood installation is very complicated process involving careful measuring, cleaning, cutting, and of course, the actual installing of your planks. Most of us don’t have the time or tools for this difficult task – not to mention, most of our hardwood warranties require a professional installation.


Don’t worry- no matter your needs, we’ll work with you every step of the way. The first steps we take when installing your new hardwood floors are removing the old flooring and prepping your subfloors. We make sure your subfloor is dry and free of imperfections since a wet subfloor can damage your new hardwood.
