Materials Used in wood Flooring
Here are some of the popular woods used in hardwood flooring. Each one has its own unique characteristics. Let DFW Flooring Warehouse help you choose the wood flooring material that is best for your home.
The two main types of oak used for wood flooring are red oak and white oak. Red oak is lighter in color than other flooring materials, but is still has some red undertones. White oak is a very light flooring material and can sometimes appear gray in color.
A maple hardwood floor has a creamier color than other flooring materials and it sometimes has dark streaks running through the panels. Maple wood is known to create strong, beautiful hardwood floors, but the wood requires conditioning before it can be stained.
Hickory wood has the most distinct grain patterns of any hardwood flooring material. It can range in color from light tan to a deep golden brown. Generally, hickory flooring panels are wider than other wood floor panels. This allows you to enjoy the texture of the wood’s grain.
