Hawa makes basic hardwood floors out of oak, maple, and birch. They also imports exotic woods mostly from South America. Varieties include Brazilian Cherry, Brazilian Teak, Santos Mahogany, Kempas, and Tigerwood. Solid floors are simply solid; engineered floors combine different types of wood. The engineered floors are more stable and easier to install because the wood on the underside attaches more easily to a sub-floor.
Distressed wood (oak) comes in different colors, like 'antique' and rosewood. (Distressed oak also is also available in solid or engineered form.) Birch floors also come in different colors: natural, butterscotch, and gunstock. All of the floors in Hawa's hardwood catalog are pre-finished.
