What’s the Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood Floors?

Solid hardwood flooring is considered the original hardwood flooring option. With a simple construction, the natural characteristics of the wood stand out.


Solid hardwood flooring has limits to where you can install it. Compared to engineered hardwood, solid hardwood can quickly become damaged if not used correctly. It doesn’t manage moisture well. We recommend installing these planks in a bedroom or living room: dry, quiet spaces without much traffic. Solid hardwood flooring can even be refinished to extend its life in your home.


Engineered hardwood flooring is built in multiple layers of pressed, wooden veneers. These layers are still 100% natural wood, but their unique construction prevents your planks from expanding or contracting in humidity. A denser product, engineered hardwood can go on all levels of your home, including finished basements. These planks are perfect for households that have active families or pets.


Where Can I Install Hardwood Flooring?

You can install hardwood flooring in various places depending on your chosen type.


Hardwood floors are exceptionally durable and can manage busier spaces. However, you should only install solid hardwood in dry, above-grade climate-controlled areas with low humidity.


Engineered hardwood can manage these elements better, and you can install it in basements, kitchens, mudrooms, and more. Waterproof hardwood flooring is the most versatile, and you can even put it in bathrooms for a beautiful spa-like setting.


Protecting Hardwood Floors From Humidity

Choosing hardwood flooring should ideally balance your functional needs, along with careful attention to the relative humidity levels within your home.


Humidity is no friend to your hardwood floors, but that shouldn't stop you from having a floor you love. Careful attention to the products you choose will go a long way in ensuring healthy hardwood floors.


For instance, engineered hardwood flooring is better equipped to manage humid climates: these products are less likely to shrink or expand when the temperature shifts dramatically. Helpful tools like humidifiers and fans, along with keeping your indoor temperature the same throughout the seasons, can help maintain a consistent interior climate. Our experts can guide you towards products best suited for your home and habits.
