Is Solid or Engineered Hardwood Better?
You really want to focus on choosing between solid and engineered hardwood because it can be impacted by where you plan on installing the wood. We carry the latest trends in hardwood as well as traditional looks, so we’ll always have what you are looking for.
Solid hardwood is made of a simple construction. Due to this construction you can refinish solid hardwood floors. You can install solid hardwood in places like your bedroom or living room. Engineered hardwood is made of multiple layers and is dimensionally stable, and combats wood’s natural tendency to expand and contract due to changes in humidity. As always, keep any type of hardwood floor away from rooms with lots of moisture such as bathrooms and basements.
Where can Hardwood be Installed?
Hardwood flooring can be glued down, nailed down, or there are floating options as well. They are very easy to clean, but do require regular maintenance so they do not lose their luster. You can also refinish your hardwood floors to keep them looking newer longer.
They type of hardwood floor you choose can be determined by where you want to install it. Solid hardwood should be installed in places on of above level of your home such as bedrooms and living rooms. Engineered hardwood is more versatile in where it can be installed. It can go on all levels of your home and can also be installed in high traffic areas such as hallways and stairs.
