    Engineered vs Solid Wood

    Engineered wood flooring is often thinner than solid wood flooring. It is manufactured with a thin surface layer of hardwood and a core that’s more like plywood. Because engineered wood flooring is made from layers of wood which bonded together, it is more stable than solid wood and resistant to changes caused by extreme temperatures and humidity. Engineered flooring, at best, can only be sanded and refinished once or twice because its finish layer is very thin (from 3mm to 5mm). 

    Solid wood flooring is a traditional favorite. It usually is thicker than engineered wood flooring and is clearly cut from a single board of hardwood. Solid wood flooring has a tendency to warp, twist, expand, and contract with changes in moisture and temperature. On the flip side, solid flooring can be sanded and refinished multiple times.
