Solid Vs. Engineered Hardwood Flooring
It’s an overwhelming process as it is when remodeling your home or simply replacing the existing flooring. What options do I have? What’s trending? What makes the most sense in my home? When thinking about hardwood flooring, I think about what is most important to me and the needs of my family.
Am I selling? Am I looking to make my home more practical and useful in my day to day tasks? Do I simply want a change………A solid hardwood floor offers multiple sanding for years to come, unfinished or prefinished, multiple species to choose from and an excellent way to add resale value to your home. An engineered hardwood, a prefinished product only, offers multiple plywood layers helping with the expansion and contraction, however having fewer species of wood to choose from the most common being Red oak, Hickory and Cherry. A prefinished hardwood will still have the resale value but not have the longevity that the solid hardwood would bring to the home. What is my perfect fit? It’s an important decision.
