Solid hardwood: Timeless beauty and durability


Solid hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of wood and offers a classic, timeless beauty that can enhance any room in your home. Here are some key advantages of solid hardwood:

  1. Durability: Solid hardwood floors are incredibly durable and can last for generations with proper care and maintenance. They can be sanded and refinished multiple times, allowing you to refresh their appearance as needed.

  2. Natural Variation: Because solid hardwood is made from natural wood, each plank will have its own unique grain pattern and color variation, adding character and warmth to your home.

  3. Value: Solid hardwood floors are considered a valuable investment that can increase the resale value of your home. They are a desirable feature for homebuyers and can give your home a competitive edge in the real estate market.

Engineered hardwood: Versatility and stability


Engineered hardwood flooring is constructed from multiple layers of wood with a top layer of real hardwood veneer. Here are some benefits of engineered hardwood:

  1. Stability: Engineered hardwood is more resistant to moisture and temperature fluctuations than solid hardwood, making it suitable for installation in areas with high humidity or below-grade spaces like basements.

  2. Versatility: Engineered hardwood can be installed in a variety of settings, including over concrete subfloors and in rooms with radiant heating systems. Its versatility makes it a popular choice for modern homes with open floor plans.

  3. Cost-Effective: Engineered hardwood is often more affordable than solid hardwood, making it a budget-friendly option for homeowners who want the look of hardwood floors without breaking the bank.
