Solid hardwood floors introduce an undeniable richness and beauty to your home. Their classic good looks speak to enduring quality and tasteful style that complements any interior setting or lifestyle, from traditional to trendy.

The legendary durability and easy care of solid hardwood flooring makes it a wise investment. Your solid hardwood floor can easily last for 50 years or more with proper care, giving you a lifetime of beauty and value. It’s no wonder solid wood floors are so popular!

 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 - Look

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 - Wood Species

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 - Board Width

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.
