Is there a difference between solid and engineered hardwood flooring?

If you need excellent wood flooring for your home, you've probably considered both engineered and solid hardwood flooring. But there are some differences between the two that might make one a better choice in your home than the other, and that?s what we?re going to consider in today?s blog post.

Taking your wood flooring requirements into consideration

Your flooring requirements will heavily determine the best materials for your home, and if hard is your flooring of choice, there are two specific types you should know about. Both solid and engineered wood are excellent choices, especially if you know which will serve you best.

Solid wood provides a through and through wood surface that is durable, stunning to look at, and offers a lifespan that can surpass more than 100 years. It's an excellent choice for living rooms, bedrooms, and even hallways, especially if a harder species is chosen for increased durability.

Engineered wood is layered plywood, topped with genuine hardwood veneer and a wear layer for added protection. These options are perfect for below-grade placement, where solid hardwood cannot be installed, and they stand up better in areas of high humidity and temperature changes.
