Both solid and engineered hardwood floors are both real wood flooring products. The differences between the two might not be readily evident so that you might wonder what the difference is between the two. We'll take a look, in this post, at those differences and how one might be better for you than the others. Read along to gain more insight into the products.
Hardwood floors have so much to offer
Solid hardwood is a rich, elegant, and timeless addition to any home, featuring solid wood from top to bottom. Choose your species, stain color, sealant, and finish to create a floor covering that can reach a lifespan of more than 100 years with proper care and maintenance.
Engineered floors have a veneer of real wood, and you can pick your species of choice, along with stain and finish types, just like you can with solid products. However, engineered materials perform better in areas that are damp and humid, with fluctuating temperature changes.
The most significant difference between the two is that engineered flooring can be installed below grade, and solid flooring cannot. Engineered floors also offer a faster installation, with a floating floor option available.
