What is the difference between solid wood and engineered wood?
Solid wood flooring uses solid wood throughout the thickness of the plank. One benefit to solid wood flooring is that it can be sanded down and refinished. Solid wood floors can last from 30 to 100 years with appropriate care, depending on the type of wood. Engineered wood flooring looks very similar to solid wood flooring. The biggest difference is the underlying layers. Engineered wood flooring is made of thin layers of bonded hardwood or plywood. With appropriate maintenance, you can expect engineered wood flooring to last 20 to 40 years. Within Engineered Hardwood, we carry style options that include Rustic, Exotic and Traditional.
