Different Types of Hardwood

There are different types of hardwood flooring, so it’s important to know what you want. This is our guide to the best two options.

Solid Hardwood

Solid hardwood flooring is an excellent option for any home, no matter the design. When you choose to install a solid hardwood floor, you’re making a lifetime investment in your home. Hardwood never goes out of style and will always be on trend. Armstrong Hardwood states that solid hardwood installation can be challenging, and they recommend using an experienced contractor to complete the job. Another reason people love hardwood is that it comes in so many colors and types of wood. Armstrong Hardwood offers over 165 solid hardwood products and multiple colors. The most popular wood options include hickory, maple, oak, red oak, and white oak. Within those categories are a plethora of colors and variations.

Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood is another type of natural hardwood. It is a bit different than the traditional solid hardwood flooring. As stated before, solid hardwood never goes out of style. The same idea applies to engineered hardwood. Engineered flooring has the exception of being incredibly durable. Most engineered wood can be sanded and refinished several times throughout the life of the floor. So if down the line you decide you want something different, you can refinish the floor again. The structure of engineered flooring makes it a versatile option for humid or temperate-sensitive areas, like basements. Armstrong Hardwood offers over 142 engineered hardwood products. You can choose the look, color, and species of wood you want for your engineered floor. Some of the most popular looks include traditional wood, specialty wood, hand-scraped wood, and distressed wood.
