What is Solid Wood Flooring and What Do I Need to Know?

Solid Hardwood Flooring is milled from a single 3/4inch thick piece of hardwood. Solid wood flooring can vary greatly in shades and hardness depending upon the species of wood. It is available prefinished or unfinished in varying widths and thicknesses.  The boards can be installed using a variety of patterns, borders, or inlays making it possible for you to have a floor that is unique to you. Solid Wood Flooring will certainly add to the beauty and value of your home.

There are several factors that will determine the flooring that is right for the consumer.  The length of time they plan to stay in the home, the construction of the home itself, which grade level the floor will be installed on, and the climate are all factors that must be taken into account when considering Solid Wood Flooring.  While Solid Wood Flooring can last for decades, it is important to note that Solid Wood Flooring is sensitive to and will expand or contract with changes in the humidity or temperature in your home.
