What is the difference between solid and engineered hardwood floors?

Choosing a hardwood floor isn’t the easiest decision to make as many homeowners want to have their floors everlasting and worthful for their homes. Changing them could be time-consuming and delay their satisfaction of their own homes. At Lynh’s Hardwood Flooring Services we are able to assist you in deciding which hardwood floors could suit your home the best and meet all your needs. Two types of hardwood floors are present for homeowners to decide on which one suits their preferences and needs.

Solid hardwood is a single and solid piece of wood. It is known for its authenticity, longevity, and durability. However, it is not recommended for installation in the basement due to damaging factors.

Engineered wood flooring, however, is constructed from multiple layers of wood with a hardwood top layer that is 100% natural. Engineered wood flooring is recommended for below grounds, for example, basements, where air and moisture problems could affect the floors.

Solid and engineered hardwood floors are suitable for areas in the house of homeowners like the kitchen and are often installed there. But at the end of the controversy, what matters the most is what you think! At Lynh’s Hardwood Flooring Services, we are more than happy to assist you whether if you have questions about your floors or if you have any concerns of any potential harmful factors that may enter your home.
