Solid hardwood flooring is made up of solid wood planks that are milled from a single piece of hardwood. The planks are then covered with a thin, clear protective layer of substance such as ceramic, aluminum oxide or an acrylic substance.

The plank is solid wood. It will expand or contract based on the humidity levels in the home. This means warping can become an issue. To protect against this, interior humidity levels in the home should be kept to between 45% and 65%.
