SOLID & ENGINEERED WOOD
Solid Wood flooring is comprised of 100% wood and no other material. Each board is made from a piece of solid wood which is cut down to size, and can vary in cut-style, which affects the appearance in terms grain and grade. Solid wood flooring is seen as a great way to give your home a warm, rustic and comforting feel.
Many people are misled by the word 'engineered' and therefore believe that it is a man made type of flooring. However, engineered hardwood flooring is made up of multiple layers of wood. The surface of the flooring plank contains a layer of 100% real hardwood and the rest of the plank is made up of base layers that vary, but are usually made up of plywoods, HDF or even finger jointed wood. Engineered hardwood flooring is extremely popular due to being more stable, versatile, durable than solid wood floors.
