Solid hardwood flooring is a natural product made of planks milled from a single piece of timber. It is kiln or air dried before sawing. The timber is cut to the desired dimensions and either packed unfinished for a site-finished installation or pre-finished at the factory. The moisture content at the time of manufacturing is carefully controlled to make sure the wood does not warp during transport and during storage.

Unlike engineered hardwood floors which are constructed of both plywood and hardwood and constructed in layers, solid hardwood is a single piece of wood without any layers. Solid wood floors have a thicker surface and can be sanded and finished more times than an engineered wood floor.


As mentioned above, engineered hardwood floors are constructed of both plywood and hardwood and constructed in layers. Engineered wood flooring consists of two or more layers of wood adhered together to form a plank. Typically, engineered wood flooring uses a thin layer of a more expensive wood bonded to a core constructed from a less expensive wood. The strength and stability of engineered wood is achieved by laying each layer in the opposite direction as the layer above. This type of construction prevents warping and bowing (the way a hardwood floor might) in moist areas. And engineered hardwood can be installed over all types of subfloors. It is finished with a hardwood veneer giving the beauty and natural look of solid hardwood. Engineered hardwood offers easy care and maintenance. Depending on the thickness of the veneer that tops the flooring, the quality of flooring used, and how well you maintain your floors, engineered hardwood can last a lifetime.


Vinyl plank is designed to resemble hardwood. It can be found in a number of styles, each mimicking a specific type of wood. It is designed to closely mimic the wood grains, colors and even textures found in natural hardwood. It comes in long plank shapes to resemble individual hardwood boards, single vinyl sheet designed to look like multiple boards, or even parquet-style tiles. Vinyl plank flooring is an affordable option to solid hardwood flooring.

Since hardwood is not recommended for moisture-prone areas like bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms, you might opt for a vinyl floor that achieves the same look. Using a vinyl sheet in a small area is a good choice for because it has no (or very few) seams and its surface is incredibly resilient. Luxury vinyl tiles and planks are 100% waterproof, and if exposed to water, they will not swell, buckle, or warp. Vinyl hardwood is also a great option for basements or crawl spaces where moisture abounds.


Bamboo is sometimes referred to as a hardwood floor material, however technically it is made from a type of grass that is highly processed to produce flooring. Strand woven bamboo mixes the grass fibers together so that they’re interlocked.

It is ecologically friendly, made from natural vegetation. The bamboo plant is a highly renewable-resource that is able to grow to maturity in as little as three to five years. This is much faster than hardwood trees which can take upwards of twenty years or more to reach maturity.

It is relatively easy to maintain. Just sweep or vacuum regularly and occasionally run a damp mop over it. You can also clean it a non-wax, non-alkaline, hardwood or bamboo floor cleanser. It is slightly more resistant to water damage than hardwood flooring, but still a concern….and comes nowhere near the engineered and vinyl plank flooring in this department.

As you can see, there are many factors to consider when selecting the right wood flooring for your home or office. They all add true warmth and beauty and increase the value of your investment. Some hardwood floors come pre-stained, and some are stained after installation. All types are long lasting, relatively easy to clean, hypoallergenic, and a great value added to any home or building.
