Hardwood flooring is a timeless material that many homeowners choose, as it is still one of the most popular flooring materials on the market today. It not only adds an elegance to any room, it never goes out of style, even if you decide to change your décor. It’s one of the few materials with a life span that can climb to one hundred years or more, with ease. If you haven’t yet considered this option for your own floors, perhaps it’s time to check it out in more detail.

The first thing you should know when considering this floor covering is that there are two main types from which to choose: Solid or engineered. As you might assume, solid wood is one piece of wood throughout, while engineered wood places a veneer of real wood between a composite backing material and a protective wear layer.
Engineered wood is an excellent choice for any below grade room, such as a basement. It doesn’t react to temperature changes, moisture or humidity in the way that solid wood sometimes can.
Since solid wood can’t be placed in areas that are below grade, homeowners sometimes choose engineered for their basements, for continuity throughout the home.
