Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
There are two different hardwood constructions available: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood flooring has a uniform construction, as the planks are made from a single piece of wood and nothing else. These planks are thick (usually ¾”), so they can be refinished multiple times without any issues. Engineered hardwood flooring, however, does not have a uniform construction. Engineered planks are made from different layers of real wood, and because they are layered in different directions, the planks are stronger and more stable than solid planks. As a result, engineered hardwood can be installed below, on, or above ground.
While solid hardwood is certainly the more traditional option, engineered hardwood, because of its extra durability, has quickly become a preferred choice in homes. Fortunately, we offer many engineered hardwood options as part of our wide selection.
In addition, we offer hardwood refinishing services. Refinishing involves sanding down the hardwood surface to remove any wear and tear. Then, we smooth the surface and apply new finish. What results is a hardwood floor that looks as good as new. Please click here to learn even more about hardwood refinishing.
As we mentioned before, solid hardwood can be refinished multiple times, but there are some engineered wood options that can handle 1-2 refinishings. As always, please work with one of our experts to see which hardwood type is right for your setting.
