Solid Versus Engineered Hardwood Flooring
While wood surfaces come in many different colors, textures, and styles, there are two main types: solid and engineered hardwood flooring. It is important to understand the difference between these two in order to make the best choice for your home.
Every solid hardwood flooring plank is made from a single piece of slumber. They are pure wood from top to bottom. This means that they are typically a bit thicker than other products. Thanks to this extra thickness, solid planks can be sanded and re-finished more times than other wood surfaces, extending their already long lifetime.
Engineered hardwood flooring planks are composed of several different layers of wood. These layers are bonded together under extreme heat and pressure to ensure the plank lasts. The core benefits of this type of wood product are that they are typically more affordable and they are less susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity.
