Hardwood floors offer the unmistakable charm and timeless beauty only found in authentic, real wood. They are never out of fashion and add real value to the home.
Manufacturing of hardwood floors has improved dramatically over the years and today's hardwood floors are more durable and adaptable to different types of living areas within the home. As example, longstrip and engineered hardwood floors can be used in areas of the home that they would never have been permitted in the past.
Today's hardwood floors come in a much wider selection of colors, wood species, and widths. Besides the classic North American hardwoods (like red oak, white oak, maple and ash) many manufacturers now offer exotic hardwood species from all over the World. Exotic hardwoods give homeowners the chance to better express their own personal decorating tastes with a more unique looking floor.
Below are listed the relative hardness for numerous wood species used in flooring. These ratings were done using the Janka Hardness Test. The higher the number the harder the wood. This should be used as a general guide when comparing various species of wood flooring. Ratings will vary from where and when a tree was obtained. The plank construction and finish play an extremely important role in the durability and ease of maintenance of any wood floor.
