A solid hardwood floor has the same wood throughout its entire structure. This is wood flooring in its simplest form. Normally solid flooring has a tongue and groove profile.

It can be fitted by nailing, gluing or floating. Which method is used is dependant on such things as the moisture content of the sub floor, customer preference, size, length of wood, width of the plank, heating system used.

In areas where there is a humidity and temperature difference between the levels then engineered boards are the perfect solution as they will not move, cup, twist, expand or shrink unlike solid boards. Another major advantage is that due to the thickness, they help with insulation and also sound as though they are in effect wood absorbing sound in the same way that solid wood does.
