What Is the Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?

When homeowners think about hardwood, they usually refer to solid hardwood. It is known as the time-tested durable solution that adds value to your home. Solid hardwood features a simple construction, and can be refinished to last a long time in your home.

Often when we introduce engineered hardwood to customers, they usually have never heard of it, or have mistaken it for laminate. Today, homeowners tend to lean more towards engineered hardwood floors for several reasons. Engineered hardwood is made with a modern construction which is 3 to 7 layers of wood veneers pressed together cross-grain with a piece of premium hardwood as the top layer. This construction features several benefits including being more stable than solid hardwood and they can resist the natural tendency of wood to expand or contract due to changes in weather. Just like solid hardwood, engineered hardwood can also be refinished.

We recommend engineered hardwood to many of our customers who are looking for a long-term flooring solution that is more than just good looking but is also functional and durable.
