Hardwood flooring is used as either aesthetic or structural flooring. Hardwood planks are milled from timbers like Tasmanian oak, Vic ash, Blackbutt, and spotted gums. Initially, solid hardwood floors were used to support building beams known as joists. As concrete became the prime construction material, the aesthetic use of hardwood floorboards became more popular. Hardwood flooring boards are the most durable and have a long life span. They deliver a stylish look on a residential or commercial floor.
