Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood

When it comes to choosing a style of hardwood, the most important thing to consider is whether you prefer solid or engineered hardwoods. Both flooring types feature different benefits, listed below.


Solid Hardwood

  • Design: The simple construction allows the natural characteristics of the planks to stand out and can help to add value to your home.
  • Durability: Solid hardwood has a long lifespan and is offered in various wood species and plank sizes. 
  • Value: Simple and enduring, your solid hardwood floors can be refinished to prolong their lifespan, and they will add value to your home.


Engineered Hardwood

  • Design: Engineered hardwood looks like natural hardwood, with the added benefit of dense layers and a top wood veneer. 
  • Durability: Engineered hardwood works well in most spaces, thanks to its protective top coat to its moisture-resistant center
  • Water-Resistance: The layered construction makes it better at handling humid conditions without warping.

Do You Offer Waterproof Hardwood?

We offer engineered hardwood flooring that is 100% waterproof. This hardwood flooring option is a favorite among busy households thanks to its rigid core and scratch-resistant finish. 


How It Works:

  • These engineered floor panels have an aluminum oxide finish that locks out moisture from spills, humidity, pet accidents, and more. 
  • Each plank features a rigid waterproof vinyl sublayer that prevents warping and swelling. 
  • These hardwood floors are also installed so that the seams are watertight, keeping spills from escaping between the floorboards and causing damage below.

Hardwood Installation

When it comes to where you can install hardwoods, keep in mind which type of hardwood you are installing and where you plan to install it. 


Solid hardwood should always be installed in dry, cool spaces, including:

  • Bedrooms
  • Living rooms
  • Office Spaces
  • Stairs
  • Hallways 

Engineered hardwoods can be installed in high-traffic and moisture-prone areas*, including:

  • Kitchens
  • Mudrooms
  • Finished Basements, and more!

*Keep in mind that waterproof flooring should only be used for these areas.
