How Hard is my Floor?

This list allows you to compare your wood floor relative to other wood speciecs. Pay close attention to both Red Oak & White Oak on this scale (I have set them in bold font) as they are the most common floors we service. Also, they are often viewed as the median of comparison between species. The higher the JANKA score coresponds to a more dense (durable) wood composition.
