ITEL Report state our floor is Acacia Hardwood, solid, prefinished flooring. The box of wood left over from the install states floor is walnut, our contractor says the floor is walnut, and the retail and wholesale flooring distributor say states the floor is walnut. The insurance company quoted our replacement floors at the Acacia Hardwood price without tax or shipping at $8.51 sq. ft.

Walnut flooring of like kind and quality is quoted by our contractor and the flooring distributor at $10.89 and $13.99 respectively. How can we determine what type of floor we have?
