Solid Hardwood Flooring

Solid hardwood is milled from solid wood. This type of wood flooring can be sanded and refinished numerous times to maintain its natural beauty.

Solid hardwood flooring is generally not recommended in below-grade locations like bathrooms or basements due to the potential for damage from ground moisture.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring combines a thin-but-tough real hardwood surface with underlying multiple layers of plywood or fireboard. Its laminated layers make it remarkably strong and more resistant to moisture. For this reason, Engineered wood can be used in below, on, or above grade areas of your home

Engineered hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished for a longer lifespan.
