Solid Hardwood vs Engineered Hardwood
What is the difference between solid and engineered wood floors? Both are made from the same materials, but their constructions differ greatly. Engineered hardwood features a special layered construction made from multiple real wood veneers with a premium piece of hardwood on the surface. Engineered hardwood can be installed on every level of your home, but you should still avoid areas with high moisture. Since engineered hardwood is made with a modern construction, it is stable and can handle everyday life in your home and frequent foot traffic. Solid hardwood features a simple, single plank construction. Solid hardwood has unmatched characteristics that allows it to add value to your home. Solid hardwood should be limited to only being installed in, on, and above levels rooms of your home.
Where Can Hardwood Be Installed?
Engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home, including finished basements with moisture control. When properly cared for, hardwood can last for years in your home. Cleaning your hardwood floor is simple, but it does require regular maintenance. Engineered hardwood can be refinished but the amount of times depends on how thick the top layer of the plank is. Solid hardwood is best installed in places like bedrooms and living rooms. Solid hardwood can be refinished up to the point where the tongue is on the side of the plank.
