As you browse for the perfect wood flooring, you’ll find some very distinct differences, even among products of the same type. For instance, engineered and solid hardwood flooring is the same yet different, and we're going to tell you more about those differences in today's post.

Engineered or solid hardwood flooring?

One of the most significant differences between these two-floor coverings is the construction. Solid wood features a through-body wood makeup and engineered materials providing a layered construction for added stability and benefits.

Solid wood offers a fantastic lifespan that can easily surpass 100 years when professionally installed and properly maintained, so you're not likely ever to have to replace them. They also give you the ability to refinish the surface several times, depending on the thickness of the wood.

Engineered wood lasts about 30 years with the same quality installation and care and can also be refinished up to several times, depending on the thickness of the veneer. However, since the lifespan is shorter than solid wood, the products may have to be refinished more often, especially if installed in an area of extremely high traffic.
