Which is Better: Solid or Engineered Hardwood?
Solid hardwood, which is the more traditional option, features a uniform construction, as the wood planks are made from single strips of wood. These planks are rather thick, so solid hardwood can be refinished multiple times. Engineered hardwood is made from multiple wood layers, so it is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. This means that engineered hardwood can be installed below, on, or above ground, and it can handle some levels of moisture and even floor-level heat.
Nonetheless, although engineered hardwood is more durable than solid hardwood, we do recommend installing it in areas with low to moderate levels of foot traffic and little moisture. Bedrooms and living rooms are therefore suitable places for hardwood.
