ASH HARDWOOD FLOORING

Create a romantic ambiance with the attractive and assertive look of Ash hardwood flooring. Ash has a similar grain pattern and colour to White Oak, and looks especially alike when stained a darker colour, but is generally lighter with lustrous creamy white sapwood to brown heartwood. Ash hardwood’s uniform-yet-interesting grain pattern warms any room with the appearance of subtle texture and detail. The coarse graining also hides scuffs well, making it a good choice for homes with young children and pets. While many clients like the natural characteristics of Ash hardwood flooring, some prefer to choose a premium grade or stain for less colour variation.
Because of its hardness and strength, Ash hardwood is very versatile and is among the easiest to work with of any hardwood species. In addition to flooring, Ash hardwood is used in the making of anything from furniture to guitars to sporting goods like baseball bats. It was also once the preferred wood for making tennis racquets.

Ash Hardwood Hardness Rating

Ash hardwood has a Janka hardness rating of 1320, making it the third hardest domestic hardwood species and actually harder than Red Oak. It is only slightly softer than White Oak and not as hard as Maple, Hickory, Brazilian Cherry and Brazilian Walnut.

Ash Hardwood Countries of Origin

There are roughly 50 species of Ash on Earth, and while some are native to Europe, Asia, and even northern Africa, the species most used for domestic hardwood production generally come from the eastern United States and Canada. Metro Hardwood Floors carries White and European Ash hardwood flooring in a wide variety of widths and pre-finishes, and as either solid or engineered.
