Solid Hardwood vs Engineered Hardwood
When it comes to hardwood, there are two main options including solid and engineered. To many homeowners, solid hardwood is considered the original hardwood option. Solid hardwood features several benefits such as adding value to your home. Solid hardwood can be refinished to extend its life cycle. The number of times depends on how thick the tongue is on the side of the plank. Engineered hardwood features a more modern construction, made up of 3 to 7 layers of wood veneers and a top layer of premium hardwood. This construction makes engineered plank stable and able to resist wood’s natural tendency to expand and contract due to changes in weather. Engineered hardwood can also be refinished it just depends on the thickness of the top layer.

Solid hardwood can be installed in on and above level rooms around your home, and engineered hardwood can be installed on all levels of your home.
