Understanding the distinction between solid wood and engineered wood floors

When selecting hardwood flooring, understanding the difference between solid and engineered options is crucial. Both have their distinct advantages and applications, fitting different needs and preferences.

  • Solid wood flooring: Solid hardwood flooring is milled from a single piece of timber, typically ranging from 18 to 20mm thick. It can be sanded and refinished several times over its lifetime. The natural depth and character of solid wood are unparalleled, offering a long-lasting floor that can endure for generations with proper care. However, solid wood is susceptible to changes in humidity and is not recommended for below-grade installations like basements.
  • Engineered wood flooring: Engineered wood flooring is constructed from multiple layers of plywood and a top layer of hardwood veneer. It's designed to reduce the expansion and contraction that natural wood undergoes with changes in humidity, making it suitable for various rooms, including those below grade or over concrete subfloors. While it can be refinished, the number of times is limited by the thickness of the top layer.

Benefits of hardwood floors

  • Enhancing your home with hardwood: Hardwood flooring is not just a purchase; it's an investment into the aesthetic and value of your home. Below are some compelling reasons to choose hardwood for your space:
  • Durability and longevity: Hardwood floors are renowned for their durability. With regular care, these floors can last a lifetime, resisting daily wear and tear and maintaining their elegant appearance.
