What makes solid hardwood different from engineered hardwood floors? The difference is that solid wood floors are crafted from a single piece of timber, while engineered hardwoods are constructed using multiple layers of different woods.  Solid hardwood gets it’s classically beautiful look and durability from this construction.

Advantages & Disadvantages

One main advantage of solid hardwood flooring is that it can be cleaned very easily. Solid hardwood can also be sanded and refinished multiple times, so you can expect to keep your investment for many years even if minor scuffs or scrapes should appear.

There are a number of different style options when you choose a wood floor including the species and stain. Solid hardwood flooring comes in common species such as oak and maple, and also in more exotic forms such as Brazilian cherry. You can even customize your stain and finish so you can be sure that you’ll find an option that meets your needs at Floor Coverings International.

However, solid hardwood is susceptible to heat and moisture damage. It can contract or expand depending on the temperature and humidity conditions of your home or office. Most installers compensate for this by leaving a small bit of space between the flooring and the wall during installation. If you are planning on installing hardwood in your basement or someplace that is very humid, you may want to consider engineered hardwood flooring instead. Be sure to choose a trusted installer or company such as Floor Coverings International Citrus Heights to install your solid wood floors to minimize the chance of damage due to improper installation.
