Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood
Most commonly a lot of confusion stems from customers not knowing the difference between solid and engineered hardwood. Solid hardwood is just one piece of wood that has a finished surface, whereas engineered hardwood is multiple real-wood veneers cross-pressed together with a finished surface. Both feature special benefits that can enhance the functionality of your home. Neither is better than the other, but one might work better for your home than the other.
When regularly maintained, hardwood floors can last a long time and are very easy to clean. Remember, hardwood is not a water proof option, so be sure to clean spills up right away to avoid water damage. Hardwood is also allergy friendly, because there is no place for dust or dirt to hide and harmful allergens to thrive.
