What is Hardwood Flooring?
Hardwood flooring is made from 100% hardwood, such as oak or maple. It’s then cut into boards and installed on your floor. Hardwood flooring is a popular choice for many homeowners because it’s beautiful and durable. It can also be refinished if it becomes scratched or damaged.
What is Engineered Wood Flooring?
Engineered wood flooring is made from a combination of hardwood and softwood. The top layer is 100% hardwood, while the bottom layer is plywood or HDF (high-density fiberboard). Engineered wood flooring is more stable than hardwood flooring, so it’s a good choice if you live in an area with high humidity, as it’s less likely to be damaged by water. Engineered wood flooring is nonporous, durable, and retains its luster longer.
Which Type of Flooring Should You Choose?
The type of flooring you choose should depend on your needs and preferences. Both have their own benefits and drawbacks. In general, you should make your decision based on the desired lifespan of your flooring and your budget. Engineered flooring has the aesthetic benefits of wood and is more affordable, but it doesn’t have the long-term durability of solid hardwood.
