If you are browsing your options in hardwood flooring, you will come across both solid and engineered products that offer many excellent characteristics and benefits. But it can be essential to find out what the difference between the two is for the best match for your requirements, so read along to find out more in today’s post.

Hardwood flooring gives you options

The most noticeable difference between solid and engineered wood flooring is that solid products are all wood, through and through, while engineered materials feature a layered plywood backing with a veneer of natural wood attached to the top. However, both give you the appearance options you want and need, with some specific details between them.

  • Stain colors – You will have more color options with unfinished solid wood than with engineered materials. Prefinished woods are more limited but still have beautiful choices.
  • Finish types – Most of the same finish types are available in both products. Choose options such as distressed, vintage, or wire-brushed to hide scratches and scuffs.
  • Lifespan – With professionally installed materials that are well-maintained, solid wood can provide more than 100 years, while engineered wood provides an average of 30 years.
