The overall look of wide plank hickory floors is breathtaking and is sure to be a showstopping feature in your home. With stunning grain patterns and color variations, hickory is one of the most popular hardwood flooring choices for homeowners. The heartwood embodies highlights of dark reddish-brown tones and the sapwood tends to be pale. Hickory hardwood flooring is visually unique in part because of the original milling marks left behind by the sawmill. Natural hickory prefinished wood floors are likely to be straight grained, but can be wavy or irregular.
Solid hickory provides durability in high traffic areas of your home, making these hardwood floors an excellent choice for a long-term investment. The hickory tree is the second hardest species in North America, ranking at 1,820 on the Janka scale (now, that’s impressive). Although red oak and white oak are both considered to be hardwoods, hickory wood ranks much higher than both of these flooring options.
Other than being an excellent choice for solid hardwood flooring, hickory is also commonly used for cabinetry, furniture, tool handles (hammers, picks axes, etc.), sporting goods equipment and industrial applications. In the past, this solid wood was used for carriage wheels and spokes, ladders and home construction.
