The Difference Between Solid & Engineered Hardwood

There are many different flooring options out there, but how many will continue to look fresh and appeal ten years down the line? That is something that you won’t have to worry about with hardwood flooring from our flooring store. Learn about our hardwood selection:

  • Solid hardwood is sold as one genuine piece of hardwood planks with the most natural appearance. Thicker in construction, solid wood is a sturdy flooring choice that can be given a satin, matte, or gloss finish, depending on your preferences. Solid hardwood can last a lifetime and is perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, and hallways with proper care.
  • Engineered hardwood is made from three or more layers of wood, with the final product being cross-directionally laminated and fused with a top layer of premium hardwood veneer. It is more resistant to moisture, water, and humidity than solid hardwood, which makes it perfect for below-grade installations where dampness is common. It is a great choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. 

Hardwood’s Many Benefits

Are you looking for reasons to invest in hardwood flooring in your home or business? Hardwood offers so many great benefits, including: 

  • Enhances the look and feel of your home by adding a timeless appeal.
  • Low maintenance and easy to keep clean.
  • Adds value to your home.
  • Solid and durable, meaning it can last for decades and is an excellent long-term investment.
  • Helps improve interior air quality.
  • Looks great with any decor style.
  • Comes in various appearances, colors, styles, stains, and species. 
  • Improves acoustics in your space.

Regular Hardwood Maintenance & Cleaning

It's essential to give it the attention it needs to maintain its brilliance. Sweep your floor and mop it regularly dry to eliminate dirt and debris. While our engineered hardwood alternatives offer some of the best moisture protection, liquid spills must be cleaned immediately to prevent seepage through the layers. Consider using a polish or specialty cleaner every few months to give your wood floors extra shine. We are always happy to propose products covered by the manufacturer's warranty for your new flooring.
