Solid wood floors are one solid piece of wood and are generally 3/4" thick. Because solid hardwood floors are more susceptible to moisture than engineered wood floors they should only be installed above grade over approved wooden subfloors. Solid wood floors can generally be recoated and refinished several times.
Engineered floors are produced by laminating several hardwood layers together to form the planks. Most engineered floors can be glued-down, stapled-down or floated over a variety of subfloors including wood, dry concrete slabs and some types of existing flooring. Engineered hardwood floors have cross-ply construction which reduces the expansion/contraction of planks caused by variations in humidity.
Today wood flooring is also offered in a variety of hardwood species that are not found in North America. These floors offer many unique and visually striking appearances that are distinctly different from the North American hardwoods.
Site finished floors require several days to install, stain and finish the flooring. Prefinished floors can be installed and completed the same day. Make sure you understand the features and benefits of both site finished and prefinished hardwood before making your selection.
