Flooring is the most important, yet sometimes overlooked, part of the decor in any home or office. It literally sets the stage for a beautiful interior view, especially when you take advantage of the many exciting options for hardwood flooring at MacDonald Hardwoods.
We are proud to offer you a wide selection of hardwood flooring, as well as some basic information to help make the design and purchasing process fun, creative and easy.
For example, there are two distinct sections of the trunk of a tree, the heartwood and the sapwood layers.
- Heartwood – The inner, darker section of the tree that contains less moisture and retains most of its size upon drying. Heartwood is formed from the older sapwood and is the strongest part of the tree. Heartwood is not as susceptible to fungal decay.
- Sapwood – Contains a lot of moisture, shrinks when dried, and is somewhat susceptible to fungus. Sapwood is the outer, lighter colored wood that sap flows through. It’s often to referred to as the “working” part of the tree.
