Wood flooring comes in a couple of different forms. One is the pure wood flooring which is small planks of wood that are nailed to the subfloor. These are very permanent floors and can last for years. You can buy them new or used. The other is the laminate wood flooring which is a composite material with a wood laminate glued to the surface. It locks into the other floor boards. Laminates need to be used in areas where there will be little moisture since this will cause the surface to peel.
