You might think choosing hardwood is just as simple as that. However, there are a few other things you’ll have to decide upon before installation can begin. For instance, you have the option of choosing either solid or engineered wood. As you might expect from the name, solid wood is just that, one solid piece of wood from top to bottom.
Engineered wood, on the other hand, has a veneer of hardwood on top, protected by a special wear layer and attached to a composite backing.Engineered wood is often the choice for homeowners looking to floor a below ground room, such as a basement. It is unaffected by humidity, moisture or temperature changes, so it’s a perfect wood floor product for areas such as this.
