Solid wood floors are just that, solid wooden planks. They can vary in thickness and can be installed above or on grade. They can also be sanded and refinished several times during their service span. All wood flooring has to be finished. This refers to a top layer or sealant that protect the floor from very day wear and tear.
Engineered wooden floors are also made from real wood. They are constructed from wood composite veneers which can even be from different wood types or species. Because the grains can counteract, this type of wooden flooring is less susceptible to fluctuations in humidity and temperature. Engineered floors cannot be re-sanded and re-finished as often as real hardwood floors. They can also be installed above or on grade as well as below grade.
You have no shortage of choices when it comes to different styles and colors. Some of the choices include nutmeg, ebony, red mahogany, walnut, birch, cherry, rosewood and oak. You can also use decorative borders to add an alluring and impressive accent to wooden floors.
