Types of Hardwood Flooring

Customers can choose from two types of hardwood - solid wood flooring and engineered wood flooring. Each type comes in various wood species, cuts, and finishes to bring a natural elegance to your home.


  • Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood is made entirely of wood. While the lifespan of solid hardwood extends up to 100 years, it is not ideal for all flooring projects. Solid hardwood is more susceptible to warping if you deal with excessive heat and moisture. However, solid hardwood is an excellent choice with professional installation and proper maintenance of moisture levels.


  • Engineered Hardwood: Engineered hardwood is a popular choice for our Portsmouth, VA customers. Engineered hardwood is made of a compressed plywood core and a thin hardwood top layer. This gives the look and feel of solid hardwood with a core that can handle heat, humidity, and concrete subfloors without cracking or warping.
