Hardwood flooring gives you so much to love in a floor covering, including superb visuals and an outstanding lifespan. But there’s more to these floors than meets the eye.

We are often asked about the most durable hardwood floor covering might be, and for most homes, Oak is a great choice. However, we’d like to explain that choice a bit more as you follow along with us in today’s post.

The best options in hardwood flooring

Some homeowners view durability differently, and that's why it's essential to know the difference between solid and engineered wood flooring. While solid flooring is durable enough to offer a lifespan that can reach and exceed 100 years, engineered floors only provide about 30 years, but they provide a different kind of durability.

Since solid wood cannot be installed in below-grade spaces, engineered flooring is an excellent alternative for the room. These materials handle dampness, humidity, moisture, and extensive temperature changes with ease, making them more durable in areas like these.

Still, the species that has always been an industry standard for all-around durability is oak flooring. It can be used in both solid and engineered materials, and we can tell you even more about it when you visit our showroom at your convenience.
