Hardwood floors are usually classified as solid pre-finished and unfinished boards and strips, engineered boards and wood block.
The majority of solid wood flooring requires to be nailed down and would need a wooden sub-floor made of different types of plywood. Solid wood blocks (parquet) can be glued down to a variety of sub-floors, providing they are dry, level and in good condition. However, solid wood plank and strip have to be nailed down and as such, would make use of a wooden sub-floor. Pre-finished wood is a range of solid hardwood flooring sanded and finished in the factory, allowing easy installation. It requires no sanding or finishing and can be walked upon on the day that this floor is fitted allowing a quick job with minimal mess and disturbance. The benefit of choosing an unfinished floor over a pre-finished floor is that it gives you the option of choosing the finish: staining, oils, wax, lacquers. Also most pre-finished solids have bevelled edges so if bevelled edges are not to your taste you may want to go for an unfinished floor to create a bevel free surface.
Engineered wood is also real wood flooring, as the whole board is made of different layers of wood. The top layer is made of solid wood usually 3 to 6 mm thick. Below the solid wood there are layers of plywood to create the strength. There is a 14 and 15mm board available which in the future when worn can be sanded and re-finished up to 3 times. There is also a 20mm board available, which can be sanded and re-finished several times and has the life span of a solid wood floor. Engineered wood flooring is very versatile and can be installed in areas where solid wood is not compatible such as some basements, sub-floors with underfloor heating and conservatories. Compared to the solid wood, the engineered floor offers more choice and can be laid over various sub-floors by floating, nailing or gluing down.
Parquet wood block is probably the most classical type of wooden flooring. It can be laid in unlimited designs and patterns (herring-bone, basket weaves, mosaics) and finished with exquisite borders and inlays.
