The Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood

Nowadays, not only do you get to choose what species of hardwood flooring you want in your home and what size plank and style, but you also have the option of installing either solid or engineered hardwood floors. While traditional hardwood flooring is composed of solid wood throughout, engineered hardwood is designed with cross-cut planks to create a more stable surface. Even though engineered hardwood is typically more expensive than solid, its durability makes up for the price difference, and it expands and contracts better with humidity changes.

Both choices come with options in the following botanical tree species:

  • Acacia
  • Hickory
  • Maple
  • Oak
  • Elm
  • Pine
  • Birch
  • Mahogany
  • Walnut
  • Ash

Hardwood Flooring Maintenance

One massive advantage of having hardwood floors is the easy upkeep. You only need to frequently sweep and vacuum your hardwood floors to keep them in pristine condition. To retain their brand new look for years down the road, it is recommended that hardwood floors be mopped with a warranty-certified cleaner and a wet mop.

Keep in mind that when marks occur on the surface of your hardwood floors, you should check your floor's warranty for the best cleaning techniques to smooth them over to ensure that you don't damage your hardwood finishing.
