Solid wood or Engineered?

Both engineered and solid wood floors are made using real wood, but each has different uses based on where you want to install it. Solid wood floors are made using one solid piece of wood. The thickness of the wood can vary, but generally ranges from 5/16” to 3/4”. Solid wood flooring can be used in any room that is above ground. One of the many benefits of solid wood flooring is that it can be sanded and refinished many times during its service life.

Engineered wood floors are manufactured using multiple layers of wood veneers. The layers that you can’t see can be of the same species, a composite material, or different species. The top layer, which is the only layer that is visible, uses high-quality wood. The grain of each layer runs in perpendicular directions, which makes it very dimentionally stable. This means that the wood will expand and contract less than solid wood floors during fluctuations in humidity and temperature. Engineered wood floors can be used in any room in a home, including those below ground.
