Solid Wood Flooring

Solid wood flooring is typically available in 3/4″ thickness. This type must be installed in a nail down application on a plywood, OSB or other acceptable wood subfloor. It is appropriate for above grade installations only. Additionally, solid wood flooring may be installed over radiant heat floor systems.

Advantages:

  • Based on the wood flooring thickness of 3/4″, the product may be re-sanded approximately 4-5 times over the product life cycle. This number may vary depending on various factors including existing wood damage, floor flatness, who is performing the work, texture, etc.
  • May be installed over radiant heat floor systems.
  • May be shop finished or site finished.
  • Some of our solid wood flooring species may be available as FSC® Certified.

Disadvantages:

  • Can be more susceptible to moisture and humidity changes.
  • Typically requires a longer acclimation period.
  • Must be nailed down to an acceptable wood subfloor so client will need to allow for change in floor elevations when transitioning to another floor covering material of varying thickness.

Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered wood flooring is available in a range of thicknesses. Most of our engineered products are available in 5/8″ thickness with a 4mm wear layer. Additionally, we offer engineered wood flooring in 3/4″ thickness with a 6mm wear layer. You may work with one of our A+D Consultants to learn what thickness is most appropriate for your project, as custom thicknesses are also available.

Our engineered wood flooring offers a sawn lumber wear layer adhered to a plywood base. The top wear layer is made from 100% hardwood in your desired species. These products may be direct glued to concrete slab or installed over a wood subfloor. Additionally, engineered wood flooring may be installed over radiant heat floor systems.

Advantages:

  • In 2016, Woodwright Hardwood Floor Company gained the Floorscore® Certification. Many of our engineered wood flooring products may meet the Floorscore® criteria.
  • Based on the wood flooring thickness, the product may be re-sanded approximately multiple times over the product life cycle. This number may vary depending on various factors including existing wood damage, floor flatness, who is performing the work, texture, etc. Please see our wear layer chart for approximate re-sandings based on wear layer thickness.
  • May be installed over radiant heat floor systems.
  • May be shop finished or site finished.
  • Some of our engineered wood flooring species may be available as FSC® Certified.
  • Added stability when using species that are susceptible to moisture and humidity changes. See Wood Flooring Stability Chart.

Marketing Myth: Engineered wood flooring and laminate are not the same thing. Our engineered wood flooring is a sawn piece of hardwood. 

End Grain Wood Flooring

End wood flooring is available in a range of thicknesses. Most of our engineered products are available in 5/8″ thickness. You may work with one of our A+D Consultants to learn what thickness is most appropriate for your project, as custom thicknesses are also available.

End grain wood flooring is a solid wood product WITHOUT a tongue and groove for maximum re-sandability.

Advantages:

  • Maximum re-sandabaility. Since there is not a tongue and groove, it may be re-sanded to the subfloor. This number may vary depending on various factors including existing wood damage, floor flatness, who is performing the work, texture, etc. Please see our wear layer chart for approximate re-sandings based on typical thicknesses.
  • May be shop finished or site finished.
  • Some of our end grain wood flooring species may be available as FSC® Certified.
