Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
When choosing a new hardwood floor, you have two options: solid or engineered. Solid hardwood is considered the traditional hardwood option. It is a simple construction made from a single plank of wood with a finished, or unfinished, surface. Solid hardwood is a long-lasting option because you have the ability to refinish it a few times. Engineered hardwood is a modern option, and is made up of multiple real wood veneers pressed together and the grains are cross-directional to give the plank more stability. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered planks can only be refinished a handful of times depending on how thick the top layer is. The benefit of engineered hardwood is it resists changes in humidity and will not expand and contract as easily as solid hardwood.
