Solid or Engineered
Solid hardwood is exactly as its name indicates – the flooring plank is made up entirely of solid hardwood. Usually consisting of a hardwood species like oak, maple, or walnut, solid hardwood’s major advantage is that it can be sanded and polished several times over its lifespan, which can last 100 years or more.
Less expensive engineered hardwood is made from a thin layer of hardwood surface bonded on top of a quality plywood layer. It looks similar to solid hardwood on its surface, but typically can only be sanded and polished once, maybe twice, in its lifetime due to the thin, top surface layer of hardwood. Its construction does lend itself to better stability in living areas that are subject to wide changes in temperature and humidity. Engineered hardwoods typically last 25 to 30 years.
