The most important thing to know about the Hardwood Flooring we have for sale, is the difference between Solid Hardwood Flooring and Engineered Hardwood Flooring.
Here is a brief explanation of the two.
Solid is made of a single piece of wood and is suitable for installation on ground level or above. Do not put a solid hardwood in a basement or on concrete because of moisture issues that would most likely occur. Solid wood floors are ¾” thick and are made from a single piece of timber. They are thicker than an engineered floor, but they can be sanded and refinished through the years many times and will last for generations.
Engineered is a more versatile product suitable for anywhere in your home. Engineered is composed of a layer of wood that is put over a substrate that is either high density fiber (HDF) or of plywoods much that are run perpendicular to each other. Because of the new technology behind an engineered floor, they are now one of the toughest and most resilient flooring types on the market. Engineered wood floors are less susceptible to humidity levels and are designed to go over concrete because the moisture in the concrete does not affect the engineered product like it does a solid product.
