Types of Hardwood
Hardwood comes in a wide and diverse selection, so there is something for everyone. Different types of wood species all range in durability, style, and even color. When it comes to durability, different species are harder than others. For example, oak and maple are two hard woods, and are great for families with an active lifestyle. Hardwood also comes in two different constructions including solid and engineered. One construction is not better than the other, there reason there are options is so you can choose the right hardwood for your home.
Solid hardwood flooring features a simple construction, which allows for its natural characteristics to stand out. Engineered hardwood features a special layered construction made up of layers of real wood that are pressed together cross-grain to create stability within the plank. Both solid and engineered hardwoods are available in similar colors, styles and even species.
Where can you Install hardwood?
The different types of hardwood constructions vary in where they can be installed around your home. For example, solid hardwood should only be installed in rooms that are cool, dry and have low traffic like bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms. The layered construction of engineered hardwood allows it to be installed in kitchens, hallways and even basements. So long as you care for your hardwood floors and do not continuously beat on them, they will last a long time in your home.
Hardwood should not be installed in places like bathrooms or laundry rooms due to the level of eat and moisture on a daily basis.
