Natural hardwood Flooring

Wood comes in many different types.  There are various species of wood that are suitable for flooring projects.  The most common types are oak, maple, hickory, cherry, and walnut.  Other imported wood species may be available in limited supply.

The harder wood species best for flooring is resistant to dents and scratches.  They are denser and may require more intense labor in cutting, installing, sanding, and staining.

The hardwood species are also available as engineered wood.  They are specifically manufactured for flooring purposes.  The main materials used to make engineered wood flooring are:

Cork Flooring

Although this is not a natural wood species, cork comes from natural wood bark.  Hence they are included in hardwood flooring material.  They are manufactured to suit the traffic that a floor receives.

Cork flooring is manufactured with high pressure and adhesive resins to create solid or engineered hardwood flooring. Since they are soft in nature, they are less resistant to dents and scratches but they can be finished and refinished to be resistant to moisture, mold, and mildew.

Bamboo Flooring

This eco-friendly hardwood flooring material is made for flooring services by adhering planks together.  Bamboo flooring is much harder than many other types of natural hardwood species.  Hence, they are durable and scratch-resistant.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring Pros & Cons

Engineered hardwood is becoming a popular choice for hardwood flooring material because of its many benefits, such as:

  • Resistance to humidity and moisture
  • Not prone to expansion and contraction caused by high humidity and temperature changes
  • Suitable in many areas like bathrooms, mudrooms, laundry rooms, and basements
  • It can be installed below ground level and directly on a concrete subfloor with or without plywood. Ideal for radiant floor heating

There are disadvantages to using engineered wood for flooring.  They cannot be refinished as much as you can for natural hardwood species.  This means that they cannot last as long as natural hardwood floors.
