    I was given this flooring from the unused portion of a conventions booth. I decided to go with painted concrete instead and now want to sell what i have but i dont know what type of wood it is or the correct price. Its 3/4" think, engineered, and comes in 4-8" widths and 24-72" lengths. It doesnt look like click lock.

    Looks like engineered. Depending on the species it can run a buck fitty to fifteen dollars a sf. However it is not boxed so a couple bucks on ebay.

    All I can say that it's an engineered flooring - obviously stained in dark brown with a wire brushed effect, on the bad site - the top layer of the planks is awfully little, so it's probably very cheap.

    I have the same question as the previous poster in terms of what type of wood floor i have. I am assuming it is either wood or engineered wood. The prior owner custom built the house so I can't imagine it would be laminate. You can see I pulled up a piece of trim to get a view of the side. This particular piece was cut down to just an inch or two width so you are viewing the middle grain of the board after being cut by the installer. There is also some type of cloth underneath you will see. Primary reason for the question I am considering radiant heating under this floor and know it works better with engineered vs pure wood. There are I- joists holding up this first floor.

    Thanks Tim,
    I posted a few more pics in case this changes anybodies mind. I looked at the old real estate listing for this house and it did say oak floors.

    Does look like oak. How old is the house?

    I agree with Tim. Most likely solid oak. Beautiful floor.
