Solid Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is made from one continuous piece of wood and is available in strips, planks and parquet squares. Wood strips are anywhere from 1 ½” to about 2 ¼” wide. Planks are wider than 2¼”. Generally, a solid hardwood floor is a ¾” thick plank that is in narrow 2 ¼” strips. However, they can be manufactured in a variety of widths and thicknesses.
Solid flooring gives you a great opportunity for customization. Your choice of species, stains, and finishes all contribute to the personalization of a solid floor.
You can get your wood floor either unfinished or pre-finished. Unfinished flooring offers unlimited color stain options. Pre-finished wood flooring features a factory-applied finish.
Because solid wood is sensitive to moisture, Davan Floors does not recommend installing a solid wood floor below ground level or directly over a concrete slab. These floors are generally for nail down installations only. Consult with your Davan Floor expert to select the floor that is just right for you.
