Produced from the finest exotic and indigenous hardwoods, solid wood floors consist – as the name suggests – of a single ¾ inch-thick solid piece of wood. Action Carpet and Floor Décor offers flooring in a selection of hardwoods, including white oak, hickory, maple, red oak, American cherry and Brazilian cherry. These are all available in several widths, depending on your exact needs. It is important for all home-owners to understand that solid hardwood floors are unfortunately vulnerable to temperature changes and humidity, which can cause them to expand, contract, crack and warp.
As such, it is recommended that this kind of flooring only be installed over approved wooden subfloors, above grade (ground level), and they must be stapled or nailed down. One of the great benefits of solid wood flooring is that it can be recoated and refinished again and again.
