Solid vs. engineered wood flooring

When considering hardwood flooring for your home, you might wonder whether solid or engineered hardwood flooring is best. We’re here to discuss a few of the differences between the two to allow you to choose.

The truth is your requirements will dictate which is best for your home. Let's find out how they differ to find out which is right for you.

Which hardwood is best for you?

Solid wood floors
are probably most well-known, offering timeless appearances, exceptional durability, and a lifespan that can exceed 100 years or more with proper maintenance. It’s a perfect choice for many spaces throughout your home but never an option for below-grade rooms. 

Engineered wood floors are a great alternate wood flooring options in these areas as they withstand dampness, moisture, humidity, and temperature changes that solid wood cannot. What’s more, they are constructed to offer the same beautiful appearances and much of the durability as their solid wood counterpart.

Both materials offer the option for refinishing, which means years of damage and wear can be stripped away and refinished for a beautiful new appearance. The process adds decades of life to each material, meaning you're likely never to have to replace these floors once they are in place.
