A Look at the Construction Process for Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are commonly used in homes and can provide a favorable aesthetic. Watch this video for a look at the construction process for hardwood floors.

Hardwood floors may be made out of a variety of types of wood, including walnut, maple, and red or white oak. The wood is initially stacked and stored in a large dryer for anywhere from 10 days to a full month; it can be removed when its moisture content is sufficiently low. The pieces of wood are then cut to standard size, with workers manually cutting out any weak points. Grooves and tongues are carved into the wood and then it is sorted by grade before sanding and finishing.
