Engineered Hardwood vs Solid Hardwood
Also known as the 'new' hardwood, engineered hardwood is an amazing alternative to solid hardwood. Taking the century-old idea of strip hardwood flooring and bonding it with a core layer of HDF or three or more layers of cross-plywood construction a and modern technology, manufacturers are able to create hardwood that is great for a number of reasons:
- Environmentally Friendly - You can get 30 TIMES more flooring from a single tree using engineered hardwood over solid hardwood,
- More Stable - Due to the product core and finishing process, engineered hardwood is stable enough to go in a bathroom or a basement. Plus engineered hardwood offers the consumer a number of installation choices depending on the subfloor, including nailing down, glue down or floating.
- Easier to Install - If you are looking to install the flooring yourself, choosing an engineered hardwood with a click joint makes installation much simpler - ask us which engineered hardwoods offer a click system - we'll be happy to help!
- More Design Options - Engineered hardwood is more stable, so you are able to create more desirable looks like long planks or wide-width planks without the gapping that would occur with solid hardwood.
