ENGINEERED HARDWOOD FLOORING
Engineered wood floors are real wood floors that are manufactured using multiple layers of different wood veneers. The grain of each layer runs in different directions, which makes it very stable. This means that the wood will expand and contract less than solid wood flooring during fluctuations in humidity and temperature.
Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid hardwood flooring is made of planks milled from a single piece of lumber. The thickness of solid wood flooring can vary, but usually ranges from 5/16” to 3/4”. Within the category of Solid Flooring are two subcategories: Unfinished and Pre-finished.
Many consumers get confused and call this type of flooring Laminate Wood Flooring, but the visual face of the floorboards are not real wood. It is actually a high quality photograph of a wood bonded to a melamine center core. Several layers of a protective finish are applied over it making it very durable.
