At one time, choosing wood flooring materials was pretty straightforward. Everything was solid wood, and the only decisions were species (think oak versus pine) and the way in which the wood was cut to create planks. Nowadays, there are an overwhelming number of options to sift through. While solid wood is still a popular choice, there is also engineered wood, reclaimed wood, and alternative materials that resemble wood. That is why we have set out to simplify the market and present to you a basic guide to wood flooring materials.
