Construction

Solid Wood Floors

Cross section of a solid wood flooring plank.Solid wood floors are one solid piece of wood and are generally 3/4" thick. Solid Hardwood Floors are produced from the finest domestic and exotic hardwoods including red & white oak, American cherry, hickory, maple, and Brazilian cherry, and are available in several widths. Because solid hardwood floors are more susceptible to humidity and temperature changes than engineered wood floors they should only be installed above grade over approved wooden subfloors and must be nailed or stapled down. Solid wood floors can generally be recoated and refinished several times.

Engineered Wood Floors

Cross-section image of an engineered floor.These floors are produced by laminating several hardwood plies together to form the planks. Most engineered floors can be glued-down, stapled-down or floated over a variety of subfloors including wood, dry concrete slabs and some types of existing flooring. Engineered hardwood floors have cross-ply construction which reduces the expansion/contraction of planks caused by variations in humidity and allows these floors to be installed on any level in the home.

 

Hardness

It is important to know the characteristics of your wood species.  Along with grain, width, and stain, you'll want to pay close attention to the degree of hardness of your wood species.

For the most part, there is subtle differences between species.  Dropping a can of beans on a hard hickory will visibly dent it, almost as much as dropping it on a soft maple.  Tho point is, they both dent.
