Solid vs. Engineered: Which Type of Hardwood Is Best For Me?

Many of our customers are surprised to see just how similar solid and engineered hardwood looks. With each floor plank hewn from a solid hunk of wood, solid hardwood has fantastic curb appeal. If correctly installed and cared for, will last for generations. More recently, engineered hardwood has become a major player on the flooring field. Engineered hardwood is crafted in multiple wooden layers, which are pressed together in cross-grains, resulting in a floor that’s denser, not to mention more affordable than solid hardwood. Here’s a closer look at each type and which one works best for you.



Solid hardwood is the original form of this flooring favorite, and each plank is comprised of a single, solid hunk of wood. Keep in mind that solid hardwood cannot be used below grade and requires a steady interior climate.

Some benefits of solid hardwood include:




Engineered hardwood, a newer innovation, is comprised of up to seven layers of wood and resin. It’s a denser alternative to solid hardwood that can manage heavier wear and moisture. It can be used below grade but isn’t conducive to sanding or refinishing.

Where Can My Hardwood Flooring Be Installed?

Hardwood flooring does best in quiet, dry spaces. It’s not recommended for the kitchen or bathroom since frequent spills, and heavy moisture and humidity can cause your planks to shrink or expand. Engineered hardwood, as mentioned previously, offers more flexibility. It can be used successfully in finished basements.
