A solid wood floor is just that – hardwood flooring made from one solid piece of lumber. But don’t let that fool you into thinking engineered wood isn’t real wood. It’s actually made from three to five layers of hardwood, stacked and bonded together under heat and pressure. Each type of wood floor has its advantages: Solid wood floors can be sanded and refinished over time, while engineered wood stands up in humid environments.
If you want to match an existing finish in your home, you may want to go with an unfinished wood floor product which will be stained to match. Keep in mind, however, that finishing the floor on site will add time to the installation process. Edwin Burton’s Flooring carries a wide range of high quality pre-finished choices for those who want to start using their room as soon as possible.
One of the more important factors in choosing the right type of wood is where the floor will be installed: on grade (ground level), above grade (second level or higher) or below grade (below ground level). Traditional solid hardwood is not recommended for below-grade installations because of moisture problems.
