Types of Pine Hardwoodpine hardwood paramus

There are a few key types of pine hardwood floors. It is important to note that although there are some overall characteristics of each type of pine, every individual species will have a different level of durability. Our experts at Floor Coverings International Jupiter are happy to help you find the best fit for your home.

Eastern White Pine

Light in color, this style has a strong grain-line, but few of the distinctive pine knots. White pine can suffer from scuffs and scratches, so it is not recommended in high-traffic areas of your home. You can help protect it by installing an area rug.

Heart Pine

With a deep red hue, heart pine is made from the heartwood of a pine tree. The distinctive knotted look of this species is likely what comes to your mind when you think of pine flooring. It is rich in hue and relatively durable.

Southern Yellow Pine

As you may assume, this flooring style is typically yellow-brown in color. Planks shift from uniform to knotted grain lines, offering a variation that many Jupiter homeowners love.
