Looking for the perfect species is likely your most important part of the hardwood flooring experience. Each species has specific characteristics and attributes, making one more beneficial to you than all the others. For example, oak flooring is durable and long-lasting, but it accepts a stain well and is durable enough for activities in most homes.

Other species might be perfect for your home, however, so you can always explore the features found in cherry, hickory, maple, birch, and different types of wood, for options that could be better suited for your requirements. Again, you'll find various grain patterns, textures, shades, and that each one will age differently, mainly depending on the amount of natural light that reaches the materials.

Many other customizations can make these floors look as you want or need them, including stain colors. Prefinished woods offer a smaller number of colors, but the installation process is much faster. If you prefer color variety over installation time, be sure to ask about unfinished, also known as site-finished, materials.
