Natural hardwood flooring can increase the value of your property and they often are designed to last the life of your home. However, you may want to consider where you plan to install your floors. This is where understanding the differences between solid hardwood and engineered hardwood comes in handy. Often our flooring experts hear our customers asking about the difference between solid and engineered hardwood.
Solid planks are just one piece of wood all the way through, whereas engineered hardwood planks are made with multiple layers of wood cross-pressed together.
Engineered planks are more moisture-resistant and durable when it comes to heavy foot traffic.
When installing your new hardwood floors, leave room for the wood to naturally expand and contract without warping. Depending on the room you are installing your floors in, speak with one of our professionals about which hardwood type would best fit your home.
