About Hardwood Flooring

Universally appealing, hardwood flooring has been prized for centuries for its unique and enduring beauty. It’s easy to see why. Adding instant value to just about any home, hardwood is a striking addition that can be incorporated into many different decorating styles. Once properly installed and sealed, your hardwood floor can last for a lifetime (often, several!) That’s why hardwood has remained a steady favorite for generations of homeowners.

What Is the Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?

Generally, you’ll find two types of hardwood flooring offered up on today’s market: engineered hardwood and solid hardwood. Engineered hardwood is made from multiple layers of laminated wood, while solid hardwood consists of one single piece of wood.

While solid hardwood can be damaged by moisture, engineered hardwood is more structurally sound and can be used in finished basements and bathrooms. Engineered wood also tends to be more inexpensive.
