What Is Solid Hardwood Flooring?

Solid hardwood flooring consists of single slabs of real wood such as walnut, cherry, or even bamboo.

Solid hardwood flooring is typically 3/4’’ thick, but because it’s 100% real solid wood, it can be sanded and refinished many times so that it lasts a long time.

Choosing Solid Wood Flooring

One of the most important decisions you’ll need to make when installing new hardwood flooring in your home or commercial building is whether you want to install solid hardwood flooring or engineered hardwood flooring.

Depending on your home, your budget and your preferences, you may choose solid wood flooring if:

  • You want to increase the value of your home
  • You want a specific type of wood and wood color
  • You want to be able to refinish/restore the floors over time
  • You want to walk on a solid, stable floor

The Benefits of Solid Hardwood Flooring

  • Long Lasting- Because it can be sanded and refinished multiple times, solid hardwood flooring can last for generations, making it a great investment for your home.
  • Versatility- Solid hardwood flooring is available in a wide variety of species and styles, as well as in prefinished and unfinished options. This makes it extremely versatile for not only your space, but also for your taste and budget.
  • Prefinished solid hardwood flooring offers easy and fast installation.
  • Strength– Due to its thickness, 100% solid hardwood flooring can add to the structural strength of your floors.
  • Solid hardwood flooring can increase the value of your home.
  • And more!

Disadvantages of Hardwood Floors

  • Cost: Because solid wood flooring is 100% real wood slabs, it can be a little pricey up front. Even further- it’s not recommended to install solid hardwood flooring by yourself, so you’ll want to contract a hardwood flooring specialist to help with your project.
  • Maintenance: Unlike engineered wood flooring, where you can replace specific panels, if your solid wood floors get scratched or if the sheen wears away, you’ll want to get them refinished. Most companies will recommend you get your wood floors refinished every 5 years to keep them looking their best
  • Affected by Weather: Because it consists of a single slab of wood, solid wood flooring will expand and contract when the humidity changes in your home. This can make your floor more likely to shrink, expand, or warp, which is why it’s not ideal for kitchens, where appliances can let off water, steam and smoke.
