Solid Hardwood and Engineered Hardwood – What’s the Difference?

There are two types of hardwood flooring: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood is constructed differently than typical hardwood flooring because it has several layers of wood. Each layer runs in different directions and includes a top layer of finished hardwood. Typically, engineered hardwood allows for at least one sand and refinish out of the product, and the amount of sanding allotted depends solely on the thickness of the boards or the ‘wear layer.’ Where solid hardwood can be sanded and refinished multiple times. Both solid and engineered hardwoods have a substantial variety of wood species, colors, lengths, thicknesses, and finishes.

Furthermore, the options are vast depending on the look or lifestyle you are going for. Engineered hardwood allows the ability to go with a wider plank hardwood because it is more dimensionally stable than traditional hardwood. A common misconception about engineered hardwood is that it is not a ‘real hardwood’ floor; this is somewhat misleading. Furthermore, this is because some looks are not favorable for a solid hardwood format because of the decreased dimensional stability of a solid hardwood. Therefore, engineered hardwood is an excellent choice for below and on-grade applications.
