Engineered hardwood flooring in a Sachse, TX home

Engineered vs. solid hardwood flooring

You may choose between solid and engineered wood flooring as you get ready to remodel your flooring. One product may work better for you, but how would you know?

Learning more about the characteristics of each product is essential, and we can help. Here are some facts as you prepare for your remodel.

Solid hardwood flooring

Solid hardwood is a single piece that's natural wood, through and through, with no separable layers. As a result, it's durable and the most long-lasting of the two products.

With professional installation, solid floors or hardwood for kitchens, can last more than 100 years. In addition, they offer a variety of species, grades, finishes, and formats to give you the results you want and need.

Engineered wood flooring

Instead of a single material, engineered products feature a layered plywood backing with a layer of natural wood on top. These products stand up better to dampness, humidity, and spills than solid wood and offer many benefits.

You'll appreciate the quick and easy installation that comes with this product choice, especially if you pick prefinished materials. In addition, they're easy to clean, making engineered hardwood flooring an excellent choice for every room.

A bit about floor refinishing

You’ll find that both solid and engineered flooring are candidates for refinishing once wear is visible. However, we can only refinish engineered materials until the natural wood veneer is an eighth-inch thick.
