Making the switch to hardwood flooring

If you’ve never experienced hardwood flooring in your home, you’re likely to be very surprised at what’s available to you. Extensive durability, stunning options in appearance, and an amazing lifespan are just a few of the benefits that many homeowners are drawn to. However, that’s just the beginning.

These floors make sense in a variety of spaces, and you can choose from both solid and engineered hardwood floors so that no space is left out. Whereas solid wood cannot be installed below grade, for instance, engineered flooring can, and will serve your purposes well.

All the hardwood flooring information you need

Sometimes, narrowing down your hardwood flooring choices is as simple as finding out how solid hardwood differs from engineered flooring. Both offer extensive options for species selection, stain color, sealants, and finishes. However, engineered floors are limited in the number of stain colors and finishes available.

While solid hardwood features a through and through solid wood construction, engineered floors are created with a veneer of real wood attached to plies of plywood and topped with a protective wear layer. Both are extremely hard, durable, and long-lasting, with the ability to create a floor covering that will be with you for many years.

Both materials can be refinished, but the number of times engineered flooring can be refinished is completely dependent upon the thickness of the real wood veneer. After the refinishing process strips away layer after layer of damaged or worn wood, you can even choose a new stain color and a new finish at the time.
