the honey contrasted with the black highlights, these hardwoods offer our home unique flooring that yields tons of positive

SOLID WOOD VS. ENGINEERED WOOD
Solid wood flooring is 100% hardwood milled from individual boards of lumber. You can install it most rooms, except for moisture-prone
areas like the basement and full bathrooms. That’s because solid wood is susceptible to natural shrinking and expanding as
it reacts to moisture and temperature changes.
For rooms with high humidity, choose an engineered wood floor. These floors are genuine hardwood floors made with a cross-layer construction that provides enhanced stability. It’s a good idea to compare the features of solid vs engineered hardwood flooring before deciding which one is right for you.

SOLID WOOD OPTIONS
What do you want your hardwood floor to look like? Smooth? Textured? Light texture or a deeper texture? A smooth floor typically conveys a more elegant appearance, while hand-scraped and distressed boards have a more relaxed, timeworn appeal. Textured surfaces also disguise scratches and foot traffic patterns over the years
SOLID WOOD OPTIONS
Armstrong offers a variety of domestic and exotic hardwood floors for your home. Domestic hardwoods like maple, white oak, and cherry have more uniform colors and grain patterns, with little variation board to board. Species like red oak and hickory are more visually striking with heavier graining and robust color variations. Exotic hardwoods exhibit beautiful looks and rich colors, along with high hardness ratings.
SOLID WOOD OPTIONS
Select from narrow strip (up to 3”), plank (3” - 5”), wide plank (5” and up), and parquet squares. Board width can easily
change the look of a room. Narrow strips create the illusion of more space in a smaller room. With fewer seams, wider width
planks showcase the natural beauty of the wood better.

A proper installation is critical to creating the look you want, and in helping to make sure it stays that way for years to
come. Solid hardwood flooring is either glued, nailed, or stapled to a wood subfloor. These types of installations can be
challenging for even more experienced DIYers. For guaranteed results, we recommend using an Armstrong Certified Installer
for your solid hardwood floor. Talk to your local flooring store retailer to find out if they have certified installers.
