Solid hardwood is made up of planks that are single, continuous pieces of solid wood. This type of floor can be sanded and refinished many times because of its thickness. These classic floors are more rustic and old-fashioned.
Engineered hardwood floors are a more durable variety of surface, consisting of several layers of wood with a solid wood veneer on top. An engineered wood floor will stand up to moisture and can be installed even in basements because of the way it’s affixed to the subfloor. Engineered hardwood will update your home and give you a modern look.
Stain new unfinished hardwood to match existing flooring in your home. Sand and Finish old hardwood to look like new. Choose your color and number of coats.
