What type of wood flooring lasts the longest?

The type of wood flooring that lasts the longest is hardwood. Hardwood floors are strong and durable and can last even longer than a century when well-maintained. Solid hardwood flooring is usually made from maple, oak, and some exotic species like Brazilian walnut, mahogany, and teak. Other types of wood flooring, such as engineered wood, laminate, and bamboo, are more cost-effective but only last for a short time as hardwood.
