Hardwood floors come in a wide variety of wood species, colors, and widths. Besides the classic North American hardwoods (like red oak, white oak, maple, and ash) many wood flooring manufacturers now offer exotic hardwood species from all over the World. Exotic wood selections include bamboo flooring, tiger wood and Brazilian cherry. Exotic hardwoods give Richmond homeowners the chance to better express their own personal decorating tastes with a unique looking floor.
Wood species vary in hardness, which translates into different levels of durability. Consider oak, maple, ash or Brazilian cherry flooring for the greatest durability. Another great option for highly durable wood floors are engineered hardwood floors. If durability is not a primary consideration for your new hardwood floor, then consider a softer wood like yellow birch or black walnut. For help deciding which hardwood floor is right for your Richmond home or office, ask one of our professionally trained hardwood floor experts at an S&G Carpet and More showroom near Richmond!
Through advancements in manufacturing wood floors, today’s engineered hardwood floors are more durable and adaptable to many different living areas in your Richmond area home. Engineered wood flooring is composed of three to ten layers, called plies that are glued together. This layered construction makes wood flooring stronger than solid wood. Engineered wood floors allow Richmond homeowners to use hardwood flooring in areas of the home that they would never have considered in the past.
Solid wood flooring is less durable than engineered wood floors because it is made of 100% hardwood milled from lumber. Solid wood floors are constructed with natural material which reacts to extreme temperatures and moisture. This means that solid wood floors can expand or shrink over time. However, solid hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished over the years to manage any changes to conditions and temperatures. For below ground and bathroom hardwood floor installations, it is best to avoid solid hardwood and choose more durable flooring such as engineered hardwood floors.

Richmond is a city in western Contra Costa County, California, United States. The city was incorporated on August 7, 1905. Located in the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay Area, Richmond borders the city of San Pablo and the unincorporated areas of North Richmond, El Sobrante and East Richmond Heights. Under the McLaughlin Administration, Richmond is the largest city in the United States served by a Green Party Mayor. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, the city’s population is at 103,701.
The Ohlone Indians were the first inhabitants of the Richmond area, settling an estimated 5,000 years ago.The name “Richmond” appears to predate actual incorporation by more than fifty years. Edmund Randolph, originally from Richmond, Virginia, represented the city of San Francisco when California’s first legislature met in Almaden in December 1849, and he became state assemblyman from San Francisco. His loyalty to the town of his birth caused him to persuade a federal surveying party mapping the San Francisco Bay to place the names “Point Richmond” and “Richmond” on an 1854 geodetic coast map, which was the geodetic map at the terminal selected by the San Francisco and San Joaquin Valley Railroad; and by 1899 maps made by the railroad carried the name “Point Richmond Avenue,” designating a county road that later became Barrett Avenue, a central street in Richmond.
