Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
A common question we hear from our customers is what the difference between solid hardwood and engineered hardwood is. Solid hardwood is just one piece of wood that has a finished surface, whereas engineered hardwood is multiple real-wood veneers cross-pressed together with a finished surface. Both feature benefits like solid hardwood can be refinished multiple times, and engineered hardwood has more stability. Neither is better than the other, but one might work better for your home than the other.
Durability of Hardwood
When regularly maintained, hardwood floors can last a long time and are very easy to clean. Remember, hardwood is not a waterproof option, so be sure to clean spills up right away to avoid water damage. Hardwood is also allergy friendly, because there is no place for dust or dirt to hide and harmful allergens to thrive.
