As you learn more about your flooring options, you'll see a difference between solid and engineered hardwood flooring. That leaves you with more questions about when to use each specific wood to ensure the best results for your home.

The good news is that your product choice will depend on your needs and preferences, and some products will work best in specific spaces. Learning more about these facts and requirements can give you the best results throughout your home.

A few important facts about solid and engineered wood flooring

It's important to know that solid wood doesn't handle humidity, moisture, and spillage without some repercussions. We can make some additions that help, but engineered wood floors perform better in these spaces.

Engineered materials have a layered construction, with plywood pieces laid perpendicularly to achieve more stability, especially under pressure. A natural wood veneer is attached to the top but isn't thick enough to cause warping, splitting, or buckling.

Faster installations are always a plus when installing hardwood materials, especially with prefinished options. With prefinished pieces, in-home sanding, staining, and finishing aren’t necessary, significantly speeding the process.

While solid wood floors offer a floating installation and prefinished options, engineered wood flooring offers a quick and easy installation. When you need great flooring fast, this is a huge advantage.
