When choosing wood floors, you'll encounter these two options: solid hardwood and engineered wood. Let's explore the differences between the two:
- Solid hardwood flooring: Crafted from a single piece of solid wood, this type of flooring offers unmatched authenticity and durability. Solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished numerous times, allowing you to restore its original beauty and extend its lifespan. It's important to note that solid hardwood is sensitive to moisture and should not be installed below ground level or in high-humidity areas.
- Engineered wood flooring: Engineered wood flooring is constructed using multiple layers of real wood veneer, bonded together with adhesives, and reinforced with a plywood or high-density fiberboard (HDF) core. This construction method gives engineered wood added stability and resistance to temperature and humidity fluctuations, so it's suitable for installation in basements and other areas where solid hardwood may not be ideal. Engineered hardwood also offers a wider range of installation options, including floating and glue-down methods.
