Hardwood floors are great anytime

Whether you’re looking for brand new flooring for a new home, or you’re doing an extensive remodel on an existing one, hardwood is a great choice. Of course, there are two main types of wood floors from which to choose: Engineered wood or solid wood. Both are great materials, but it’s likely one is a better choice for your home than the other is. You can even use both types in the same home, just keep reading to find out how.

Engineered hardwood floors

Engineered wood features a veneer of real solid wood situated between a protective wear layer on the top,and a composite backing material as a foundation. The wear layer keeps the wood layer protected from scratches and scuffs,as well as pet nails, high heels and everyday wear and tear. The backing helps give the floor a durable, sturdy feel and keeps the wood itself from reacting to changes in temperature, humidity and moisture.

Engineered flooring is perfect for any room that is below grade, such as basements. Since solid wood cannot be installed in those rooms, this is the perfect alternative.

Solid hardwood floors

For any on or above grade room, solid wood is a perfect candidate. You’ll be able to choose the particular species of wood, the finish, and the stain color. Even more choices are available here if you have your floors finished on site, instead of purchasing prefinished wood.

Your choices in those areas will depend upon several things, including the level of traffic in the rooms you’re looking to have floored. Be sure to discuss this with your flooring professional.

Solid wood is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a long lifespan. It can be refinished several times, depending upon the thickness of the wood, and with each refinishing, your floor will be brought back to a like new look all over again.
