When you're ready to buy hardwood flooring, we know you'll have questions. And the difference between solid and engineered wood is an essential part of what you need to know.
These woods are similar, yet different, with many benefits that will serve you well. In addition, both last a long time, so it's a worthy investment in any home.
Solid hardwood flooring
Solid hardwood is one of the most sought-after wood floors on the market, and many homeowners enjoy that they have a lifespan that can exceed 100 years.
But you'll also appreciate the ability to customize the look of your floors. Choose your favorite stain colors, surface textures, and formats for a look that's all your own.
You'll enjoy the durability as well, especially in areas that see a lot of traffic. And you can use a few runners and rugs to protect the surface of your hardwood flooring even more.
Engineered hardwood flooring
Engineered hardwood is also very durable, with a lifespan of about 30 years. However, unlike solid wood, this product has layers.
The bottom layers are plywood, laid perpendicular to one another. But the top layer is natural wood and available in varying thicknesses.
Like solid wood, you can customize the look of your floors in many ways. And it's the only hardwood product recommended for below-grade installation.
