Solid Hardwood Flooring

Solid hardwood floors are strips of flooring made from a single piece of wood, milled with a tongue and groove for nail-down installation. To view our selection of solid hardwood floors and to learn more about the different types of wood flooring we carry, like white oak, birch or maple – visit our Edmonton Showroom!

Pros and Cons to Solid Hardwood Flooring

Pros:

  • Solid hardwood floors are often chosen when trying to match to an existing floor already in the home or when you need to stay within a budget.
  • Solid wood floors can be refinished numerous times – we bring in solid hardwood in a variety of thicknesses typically 3/8 inches to 1 inch.
  • Most solid wood floors today are factory prefinished.

Cons:

  • It isn’t ideal to go wider than widths ranging between 1 ½ inches to 3 ¼ inches in solid hardwood floors. The wider the board width, the more chance of gapping in the winter months if the humidity in the home fluctuates.
  • If textured or rustic flooring options are what you desire, solid hardwood is likely not the best fit for you.
  • Solid hardwood floors are suitable on main (ground) and upper floor levels, but not below grade or basements due to excessive moisture concerns.

We are particular about the solid hardwood we carry as some will perform better in Edmonton and area than others. For example, Maple and Hickory will shrink or gap in winter months more than others. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find the best type of floor for your home.
