There are two types of hardwood you can choose from, which is a solid or engineered construction. Both types of hardwood have great features and benefits, just one may be better suited for your home than the other.
Solid hardwood flooring is seen as the traditional hardwood flooring option. It’s simple construction allows for the plank to show off the natural characteristics of hardwood wood. Solid hardwood features characteristics that no other flooring can replicate.
Engineered hardwood flooring features a modern construction that is attractive to homeowners. These planks are made up of 3 to 7 layers of real wood veneers and topped with a premium piece of hardwood as the surface. This layered construction allows the planks to be more stable and resist wood’s natural tendencies.
Where can you Install Hardwood?
Hardwood flooring is known for being durable and long lasting, but it needs to be installed in certain areas of your home to live out its intended lifecyle. For example, solid hardwood can only be installed in on and above ground rooms like bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms.
