Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring comes in three main types. Each type is available in both an unfinished and a pre-finished version. Unfinished flooring must be job-site sanded and finished after installation. Pre-finished flooring is sanded and finished at the factory – so it only needs installation. The three main types of solid wood flooring are:

  • Strip flooring – This type of flooring is denoted by the thickness and width of the wood planks. Strip flooring has a set width, but the thickness can vary. Strip flooring ranges in thickness from 5/16 of an inch to ¾ of an inch wide. It is available only in widths of 1 ½ inches, 2 inches, and 2 ¼ inches.
  • Plank flooring – Plank flooring only comes in two thicknesses, but unlike strip flooring, the widths can vary. It is available only in thicknesses of ½ inch or ¾ inch and a range of widths from 3 inches to 8 inches.
  • Parquet flooring – Parquet floors have a very different look from typical hardwoods. They are made up of geometrical patterns composed of individual wood slats held in place by mechanical ascending or an adhesive.
