Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular flooring types among many property owners. There are various types of hardwood flooring which are generally split into two groups, exotic and domestic. Domestic types include hardwoods like White and Red Oak which are cropped from trees grown in Northern America. It is other areas of the world that tend to grow Exotic types of hardwoods such as Africa. These include Teak and African Mahogany. Exotic types of hardwoods are usually a lot more expensive than domestic hardwoods. The techniques for sawing the wood give different types of hardwood flooring as the way the wood looks once sawn depends on which angle the wood is cut. If the wood is plain sawn then it means it is cut length wise which results in it displaying the grain. If on the other hand it is quarter sawn this means it is cut at an angle which results in the expansion rings being exposed.
