Solid vs engineered square | Carpet Your World

What's the difference between solid and engineered hardwood flooring?

Solid hardwood is more traditional. This features planks that are made from a single, solid piece of wood. It is usually 3/4-inch thick with an added wear layer that can be refinished multiple times, which means solid hardwood can last for decades. However, solid hardwood cannot be installed in basements and is more sensitive to moisture. It is costlier up front, too.

Engineered hardwood, on the other hand, is composed of several layers of hardwood atop a high-quality wood composite, such as plywood. Engineered hardwood costs less up front and can be installed anywhere. However, it is often only 1/2-inch to 3/8-inch thick and can typically only be refinished once before the entire floor will need to be replaced.
