When it comes time to choosing a new floor for your home setting, hardwood flooring certainly seems to stand out from the other options. Hardwood simply has a natural character that cannot be replicated. As a result, hardwood flooring, as long as it’s treated correctly, can add long-lasting style, luxury, and even value to your home.
Is Solid or Engineered Hardwood Better?
Hardwood is available in two different types: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood, which is the more traditional option, has a rather uniform construction, as it is made from genuine strips of wood and nothing else. There is no special construction. Solid hardwood planks are therefore thick enough to handle multiple refinishing’s. Nowadays, most homeowners opt for engineered hardwood flooring because, unlike solid hardwood, it features a layered construction. With this construction, engineered hardwood is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. It can be installed below, on, or above ground, and the planks can handle some moisture and humidity without swelling.
Hardwood Flooring Maintenance
Nonetheless, although engineered hardwood does offer greater stability and support, it is recommend that you install hardwood in residential areas with low to moderate foot traffic and little moisture. And, after installation, hardwood needs to be properly maintained.
