For decades, solid wood flooring has been one of the most popular options in the U.S. The construction of this flooring is as simple as it comes – the wooden planks or boards are around 0.75 inches thick, and they are installed by nailing the panels to the wooden subfloor.
You can find solid wood in either strips or planks. They are made from a wide array of wood, including domestic species like maple and oak or exotic options, such as purpleheart or Brazilian cherry. Wood flooring also comes finished or unfinished. If you select unfinished wood flooring, you must sand and finish it once it is installed. Choosing prefinished flooring will usually be more affordable and does not require as much work.
