The term, hardwood flooring, encompasses both the solid variety as well as engineered flooring. While the solid option features a material that goes through and through, engineered flooring has one veneer of wood situated between a backing layer and a protective wear layer. Both are excellent floor coverings and have stark similarities and differences.
Solid hardwood flooring is extremely durable, standing up to a great deal of wear and tear, especially with proper maintenance. It comes in a variety of species, which is the most important aspect of choosing your solid flooring. It also offers a variety of stain color and finish options that help to truly personalize your look. Finishes such as wire brushed, hand scraped, or distressed finished even help to hide signs of wear, like scuffs and scratches. This particular floor covering can never be used in below-grade spaces, and it must be acclimated before installation can begin.
Engineered hardwood flooring is a perfect material for use in places where hardwood won’t work, such as those below grade spaces just mentioned. Since only a veneer of real wood is used, it still offers the option of species, stain color, and finish options, but isn’t as long-lived as the solid variety. It’s also a great option if you prefer a flooring that allows you to change it out after a couple of decades.
