What’s the difference?
Solid hardwood floors are exactly what they sound like – solid pieces of wood, milled from a single piece of lumber, into plank flooring.
Engineered wood flooring is constructed in layers. Depending on the manufacturer, it has a core of either solid wood layers or plywood layers, and has a final layer of solid wood attached to the top, known as its “wear layer.”
Solid hardwood is usually a once in a lifetime buy.
Solid hardwood flooring can be site finished to your own personal preference, making it the most customizable flooring choice there is. And you can change the appearance as many times as you like, until there’s no more floor to sand down.
With Engineered wood flooring there are many custom looks that are achieved with solid floors and there are no refinishing costs. However these floors cannot be sanded.
