Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood

There are two types of hardwood options: solid and engineered. Solid hardwood is the more traditional option; it is one solid plank of wood. Its thickness and uniform construction gives you the ability to refinish them multiple times. Engineered hardwood is made up of multiple layers that are pressed together cross-grained for increased stability. Because they are made of multiple layers, they can really inly be refinished once or twice.
