Solid Hardwood

Solid Hardwood has been around the longest as such the most popular. Solid Hardwood is milled from 100% lumber making it a natural product. Due to the single component of solid hardwood it is susceptible to environmental conditions where climate must be controlled. Therefore this hardwood is not recommended for moist areas or buildings that are not heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer.

Hardwood Flooring: Engineered Hardwood

Engineered wood flooring is built up of layers of ply type wood. It consists of multiple layers sandwiched together with glue, with a layer of hardwood ontop. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood better stability, which reduces concerns associated with shrinking and expanding when temperature and humidity change, giving engineered the versatility of being installed below grade.
