Solid vs engineered hardwood flooring

 
Let’s clear up some confusion. There are two kinds, and both are made of genuine wood. The only difference is in the construction. Rather than one slice of solid timber all the way through, engineering is constructed with a big slice of wood on top with at least three (preferably more) layers of wood combined with resins. The layers are placed in a crisscross position which gives it more stability and an increased ability to handle water and moisture.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Because engineered wood handles humidity better, it doesn't shrink or expand to adjust to the weather, so no acclimation is necessary.

All hardwood flooring increases home value.

Whether solid or engineered, your property values will see an increase equal to 70 to 80 percent of your purchase price of either the solid or engineered version.

We’re also told by real estate sales associates around the country that buyers will sometimes pay as much as 2.5% more of the selling price for a home with wood floors.

Moreover, wood floors add to the visual appeal, making the home sell faster.

Both can be refinished

 
Solid woods can be sanded and refinished around six times. Thickness does matter when it comes to engineered. The overall thickness ranges from ⅝-inch to ¾-inch. The thicker the better and the more often it can be sanded.
 

Easy to care for

 
Whether it’s solid or engineered, all you need to do is vacuum regularly without beater bars (rotating brushes.) Polish periodically; makesure the floor is completely dry, so the liquid doesn’t get between the boards. Wipe spills immediately and use protective pads on furniture feet when moving to avoid scratching.
