Hard Wood Flooring Species

When making any purchase decisions we suggest doing thorough research on what may be suitable for your home and especially the region in which you live.

Some hardwoods may be susceptible to extreme arid conditions in their solid format; checking and splitting can occur.

In cases like this we suggest using engineered hardwoods as an alternative.

On another note, wide swings in relative humidity through seasonal changes should be monitored. Moisture can be added or reduced within HVAC systems, minimizing the expansion and contraction process all hardwoods experience.

Also know that color changes with all hardwoods will vary as will the rate in which they change.


Below is a list of the common wood floor species
