Hardwood floors in a kitchen.

Solid vs. Engineered Hardwood Flooring

When it comes to hardwood flooring, there are two main options: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. While they may look the same, the two have some significant differences. Here are some key points to remember when choosing between solid and engineered hardwood:

Solid Hardwood Flooring

  • Made entirely from one wood species in a single wood plank.
  • Can be refinished multiple times over the years.
  • More susceptible to expansion and contraction due to changes in humidity and moisture. 
  • Ideal for hallways, bedrooms, living rooms, and dining rooms. 
  • Can last a lifetime if it is properly cared for. 

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

  • Made from several layers of wood, with a top layer of hardwood veneer.
  • Can be refinished, but typically fewer times than solid hardwood.
  • More durable and less prone to expansion and contraction when in contact with moisture or humidity than solid hardwood.
  • Ideal for spaces where dampness is common, like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. 

Why Should I Choose Hardwood Flooring For My Home?

Hardwood flooring has been a staple in homes for centuries. There are so many advantages to choosing hardwood for your home. Here are just a few reasons why California homeowners prefer hardwood flooring from our selection of the best brands in the industry:

  • Durability: Hardwood floors are incredibly durable and can last for many years with proper maintenance. They are resistant to scratches, dents, and other types of damage that can occur with different types of flooring.
  • Timeless Beauty: Hardwood floors are classic and never go out of style. They add warmth, character, and elegance to any room in your home. With a wide variety of wood species, colors, and finishes to choose from, you're sure to find the perfect hardwood floor to match your personal style and home decor.
  • Improved Air Quality: Unlike carpeting, which can trap allergens and dust, hardwood floors are easy to clean and don't hold onto dirt and debris. This can improve the air quality in your home and make it a healthier environment for you and your family.
  • Increased Home Value: Hardwood flooring is an investment in your home. It adds value and appeal to your property, making it more attractive to potential buyers should you decide to sell your home in the future.
  • Versatility: Hardwood floors can be installed in any room in your home, from bedrooms to living rooms to kitchens. They can also be stained or finished in various ways to achieve the perfect look for your space.

Maintaining Your Hardwood Floors

Maintaining hardwood floors is essential to ensure that they remain beautiful and durable for years to come. Here are some tips for maintaining hardwood floors:

  • Regular Cleaning: Regular sweeping or vacuuming is necessary to remove dirt, dust, and debris that can scratch the surface of hardwood floors. Use a soft-bristled brush attachment to avoid damaging the floors.
  • Mopping: A damp mop or microfiber cloth can help remove stubborn dirt and grime. Avoid using excess water or harsh cleaners, which can damage the hardwood floors.
  • Protect from Scratches: Protect hardwood floors from scratches using furniture pads under chair legs and furniture. Avoid wearing high heels or dragging heavy objects across the floors.
  • Prevent Water Damage: Hardwood floors are sensitive to water damage, so cleaning up spills immediately is essential. Avoid wet mopping or using steam cleaners, as excessive moisture can cause the wood to warp or cup.
  • Refinishing: Hardwood floors may become scratched or dull over time, requiring refinishing. Refinishing involves sanding down the surface of the hardwood floors and applying a new finish.
