What is the difference between solid and engineered?
Answer: Solid is 3/4 inch thick solid piece of wood. Engineered is uses a cross ply method where every other layer runs. The engineered is a more stable product and is recommended for above or below grade. The solid can be sanded and finished up to 3 times and the engineered may or not be able to be sanded or refinished based on the wear layer. The pricing on first quality for both products is comparable.
