You need to answer some questions to be sure you make the right selection. Are you choosing solid or engineered wood? These hardwood
types have different thickness requirements.
What’s the climate like in the room in which you plan to install? Solid hardwood expands with humidity or shrinks in the dry and cold; this flooring can cup, crown, or gap if you don't plan accordingly.
How long do you plan to live in the home? Your priorities will be different if the purchase is a spruce up to sell, or if you’re planning to pass the home to other family generations. There are three main thicknesses for solid: ⅝ or ¾ or ⅞-inch, with the most common being ¾-inch.
