Both solid wood flooring and engineered wood flooring offer many benefits over other types of flooring options.
Solid Wood Vs. Engineered Wood
Need help deciding which type of flooring is best for your home and lifestyle? Learn about the benefits of both types of wood flooring.
Solid wood flooring, made entirely of real wood, provides a timeless and natural aesthetic that adds warmth and beauty to any space. It is durable and can be sanded and refinished multiple times, allowing for long-lasting use.
Engineered wood flooring offers the look of real wood but with enhanced stability and versatility. It consists of a top layer of real wood bonded to layers of plywood, which provides dimensional stability and resistance to moisture. Engineered wood flooring is ideal for areas where solid wood flooring may not work, such as humid basements . Both options are hypoallergenic, easy to maintain, and eco-friendly, making them an excellent flooring solution for any home.
