Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid hardwood floors are cut from a solid piece of wood and are offered both unfinished or with a prefinished surface. Because the plank is made from 100% wood, it will react to changes in humidity, so it should be placed in rooms with low moisture levels. Solid hardwood flooring is typically ¾” thick. One of the benefits of this is that solid hardwood flooring can be refinished several times over the course of its lifetime. Because hardwood is especially prone to scratches and dents, you will want to pay special attention to the Janka hardness rating scale and buy a species (i.e., oak, ash, etc.) of wood appropriate to your lifestyle and your budget. Whether finished or unfinished, wood changes color over time due to oxidation and exposure to light. Most of the Exotic Species darken in color over time, while others lighten. Solid hardwood flooring comes in many different wood varieties, including exotic woods. It is also more expensive than engineered hardwood flooring because it is 100% wood
