Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between solid wood floors and engineered wood floors?
Solid Wood flooring is just that… a solid piece of wood from top to bottom. The wood plank has tongue and groove sides and can come pre-finished or unfinished. One of the many benefits of solid wood is that it can be sanded and refinished many times. Solid Wood floors will react to the presence of moisture more so than engineered wood. In colder weather when the heat is on, moisture leaves the wood causing the floor to contract. In the summer when the humidity is higher, the wood can expand. Too much moisture can cause the wood to cup or buckle. Because of this fact, it is important to maintain the proper humidity level in your home in order to protect your solid hardwood floor. Because of the moisture issue, Solid Wood flooring cannot be installed below grade (such as basements).
Engineered Wood flooring is made of real wood. It is manufactured using multiple layers of wood veneers with each layer running perpendicular to the other resulting in a flooring product that is dimensionally stable and more durable than Solid Wood. Because of its construction, Engineered flooring will expand and contract less than solid wood flooring when humidity and temperature levels fluctuate. Therefore, Engineered Wood flooring can be installed below or above grade. An asset of some Engineered Woods is an aluminum oxide finish which results in a hard protective finish. Note, a flooring professional should be consulted when considering sanding and finishing an Engineered Floor.
