Hardwood Flooring in Atlanta
Solid hardwood is an excellent choice for flooring. Resilient and durable with a beautiful finish that will last years to come, solid hardwood flooring is typically the best choice if your install location allows for it.
The best species of hardwoods for flooring are:
- White Oak
- Red Oak
- American Cherry
- Brazilian Cherry
Solid hardwoods are typically 3/4" thick, with variable widths available from traditional 2-1/4 inch boards all the way up to 5 (or more) inch wide boards. Variable widths (for one flooring install) are available in some product lines.Solid Hardwood Pros:
- Most durable and longest lasting.
- Can be sanded and refinished numerous times.
Solid Hardwood Cons:
- More susceptible to temperature and humidity level changes.
- Some limitations at some install locations. (Solid hardwood is usually not the best choice for a slab home.)
Solid hardwood flooring needs to be installed on or above grade. (For example, no basements.)
It is best to install hardwood flooring on top of a solid and healthy wooden subfloor with nails.
Exotic hardwoods are also available, which often provide very distinctive colors and patterns. Some exotics require lots of sunlight exposure (after install) to reach their deepest, richest colors.
