Hardwood Flooring Options
Hardwood flooring is available in solid and engineered constructions. Solid hardwood is considered the more traditional option because it features a simple, time-tested construction. Solid planks, in fact, are made from real strips of wood and nothing else. Engineered hardwood, however, features a special layered construction, so engineered planks are more dimensionally stable than solid planks.
Hardwood is best-suited for bedrooms, living rooms, and other areas without significant foot traffic and moisture. In these settings, hardwood can usually last decades, as long as you keep the floor maintained. Cleaning your hardwood floor is simple, but it does require regular maintenance. If you choose a solid hardwood option, you can refinish it to look new and last for years.
