Hardwood flooring from Mississippi Pro Design in Pearl, MS

Which type of wood floors is ideal, engineered, or solid?

Choosing a hardwood floor covering begins the process of picking materials that suit your specific requirements and preferences. For instance, solid and engineered materials are both in the “wood floor” category, but they each offer different characteristics.

The characteristics you choose will depend on your needs, your household activity level, whether you have pets or children, and more. So today, we’d like to look further into how you can make the right choice for you. If you have further questions, we welcome your visit to discuss more detail.

Wood and wood-look flooring adds so much

If you’re looking for something with elegance and character, either wood or wood-look flooring will provide the results you want. The solid variety features excellent durability, lifespan, and integrity, while engineered materials offer many of the same, but other options as well.

With solid flooring, you’ll get a product that is wood, through and through. This gives excellent stability, endurance, and the option to choose your species, stain color, sealant, and finish type. It’s an excellent product for those who aren’t looking to purchase flooring again soon, possibly for the length of time you own your home.

Engineered flooring still allows you to choose species, stain, and finish, but the real wood veneer is attached to layers of plywood that offers excellent advantages. It can be placed in basements or other areas where dampness and humidity are present, without suffering damage, and it has a protective wear layer that aids in the extension of an already great lifespan.

Both of these materials can be refinished, although the solid variety can be refinished more times than engineered, which can extend its lifespan by many years. Both floors offer beauty, elegance, and timelessness.
