The difference between solid and engineered hardwood flooring?

Solid hardwood flooring and engineered wood floors are both “real” hardwood products, but there are some differences between them that you should be aware of if you're looking to purchase one of them for your home. We will consider these differences in today's post, so read along to learn about them.

Solid hardwood flooring and more

If you have ever experienced solid hardwood, then you know it is amazingly durable and offers some of the most beautiful appearance options available in flooring. It also can surpass more than 100 years of life with proper maintenance, and sometimes as much as 200 years.

Solid wood can be refinished several times, allowing you to choose a new stain color, finish, and more after removing years of abuse and wear. This is one of the reasons the floor covering lasts so long.

With engineered wood flooring, you get many of the same options, including choosing your species and stain color, and the floors can be refinished up to several times, depending on the thickness of the wood veneer. The veneer sits atop layers of plywood, which work to give these floors excellent stability and lifespan of about 30 years or more.
