Hardwood is one of our many options of hard surface flooring (https://www.whittcarpetonesalem.com/hard-surface-flooring). Often our customers get confused about how to choose between solid wood flooring and engineered. Depending on the needs of your home, one might be better than the other. Solid planks are a single piece of premium hardwood usually ¾” thick, while engineered planks are constructed by laminating layers of composite wood together with a hardwood veneer at the surface. Solid hardwood floors are better for dry, cool areas of your home such as bedrooms and living rooms due to woods porous nature. Engineered planks, however, are great for those moisture prone rooms in your home that solid wood is not. This is because they are constructed to counteract and stabilize wood’s tendency to swell and shrink in changing moisture conditions.
Due to the porous nature of hardwood flooring, it will expand and contract in relation to the moisture level in the room, making solid hardwood not a suitable option for rooms like bathrooms and basements. To ensure you get the most out of what you paid, it is important that hardwood floors are properly installed and maintained to boost your floors longevity. Flooring specialists can guide you through the process of selecting the correct hardwood floor or hardwood floor alternative for your space, including using a hygrometer to monitor humidity levels to see if hardwood flooring is suitable for your desired room.
