Hardwood flooring is an investment into your home not just because of the initial cost but because of the value it provides your home. A benefit of installing hardwood in your home includes how simple they are to clean. Cleaning your hardwood floors regularly may seem like a chore but will keep them looking newer for longer. Hardwood floors are also an allergy friendly option.

Solid vs Engineered Hardwood

When it comes to choosing hardwood for your home, there are two main types including solid and engineered planks. Solid hardwood is the more traditional option, and its construction is a simple plank of wood. Its thickness and uniform construction gives you the ability to refinish them. They continue to be a popular flooring option because of their unique beauty and value adding characteristics.

Engineered hardwood is made up of multiple layers that are pressed together cross-grained for increased stability. These planks are made from 100% wood materials, but because of its construction it is more durable compared to solid hardwood. Engineered planks are resistant to moisture and can handle a lot of foot traffic, making them a great option for households with children or pets.

Where Can You Install Hardwood?

Before you choose the type of hardwood you want, you will want to make sure you can install it in that space. For example, solid hardwood performs best on the first and second level of your home. Those rooms can include living rooms, offices, and bedrooms. Since engineered hardwood features a layered construction, it can be installed on all levels of your home. That includes finished basements, kitchens, hallways and more.
