Real Wood Floors – Hard to Beat!
Today, the varieties of wood floors which have long been in use, still enjoy justifiable popularity for residences and commercial spaces. This includes traditional solid hardwood wood floors made from oak, cherry, maple, ash and walnut among other species. But technology, innovation and imagination have expanded the choices in wood flooring to an even greater degree.
Even more recently, exotic species such as jatoba (AKA Brazilian Cherry), toona and tigerwood have made a splash in the wood flooring industry, offering even more choices for look and durability. Reclaimed pine floors and cork flooring, with their unique looks and impressive durability have come forth as significantly attractive and environmentally-friendly wood flooring alternatives. Engineered hardwood flooring utilizes real hardwood, but also allows for greater resistance to expansion, moisture and temperature change due to a multi-ply design.
