Solid or engineered hardwood flooring in Woodstock, GA from Cherokee Floor Covering

Solid and engineered wood

The differences between these two are in the construction. Solid is a solid, through and through, piece of wood. Because it is solid is can be sanded and refinished many, many times and can last for more than a lifetime. Solid is usually more expensive than engineered wood.

Engineered wood is made using several thin layers of wood, with a top layer that is made of the species wood desired. Engineered wood is suitable for below grade installations such as a basement, because it is not as vulnerable to moisture and how it is installed. Solid wood can only be used above or on grade level.

Cherokee Floor Covering has a broad selection of all types of species including domestic traditional's and exotic selections. Visit our showroom in Woodstock, GA and meet with one of our hardwood flooring experts to discuss you next flooring project.
