Solid or engineered hardwood?

You'll make some decisions during this service, including whether to choose solid or engineered wood flooring. Each one has specific benefits, but it's crucial to compare based on your requirements for flooring. Consider these differences, pros, and cons.

  • Moisture concerns - Engineered materials stand up to dampness and humidity far better than solid ones. Both must be acclimated, but engineered hardwood flooring doesn't react as harshly to these
  • Lifespan - Solid wood is the winner if you're looking for the most extended lifespan. Engineered wood flooring can last up to 30 years, but solid wood lasts over 100 years with professional installation and regular care. Solid wood floors also add more excellent value to your home.
  • Installation - Both products offer excellent installation options. Both can be floated, but engineered ones are floated more often. We will share information on subflooring and moisture barriers when you choose your product.

Choose a fantastic pattern

The perfect pattern can give your wood floors an outstanding personality. You can get the same patterns with solid and engineered materials. Here are some you'll want to consider for your hardwood flooring:

  • Horizontal
  • Diagonal
  • Mixed width
  • Herringbone
  • Chevron
  • Checkerboard
  • Painted
  • 3D Parquet
