Solid vs. engineered hardwood flooring
Solid hardwood is more traditional. With solid hardwood, planks are made from a single, solid piece of real wood. It tends to be thicker at ¾-inch with an added wear layer that allows it to be refinished multiple times.
Engineered hardwood, on the other hand, is made of thin slices of hardwood that are layered atop some type of high-quality wood composite, such as plywood. Engineered hardwood is more budget-friendly and can be installed in basements while solid hardwood should only be used above grade. It is also usually around ½-inch thick and can only be refinished once, meaning the entire floor will need to be replaced if it becomes too worn or damaged.
There are many different hardwood styles and textures to choose from. Hover over each image to learn more about some of our popular looks.

No! If you have pets, there's no reason you can't also have hardwood flooring. However, be aware that hardwood flooring is not water-resistant, and it is prone to scratching. Fortunately, scratching usually only damages the top layer of the hardwood, which can be addressed. Simply keep your pets' nails trimmed and clean up any accidents right away and there's no reason you can't enjoy beautiful hardwood flooring for many years to come!
You can, but you'll need to be attentive to messes and spills. Hardwood is not water-resistant, and liquid spills can cause damage. As long as you establish a vigilant care routine for your hardwood, it will stay in great shape!
There are a couple of things to consider when choosing between solid and engineered hardwood. First, there's price. Solid hardwood is more expensive; however, it often lasts longer and typically increases the value of your home. Engineered hardwood is more affordable, although you may need to be prepared to replace it. Then, there's versatility. Engineered hardwood is more versatile, better withstanding moisture and temperature changes. Solid hardwood is much more sensitive and cannot be installed in some areas, such as basements. Ultimately, you must decide what is best for your needs and your budget.
If you do, you'll need to be cautious. Since moisture often damages hardwood, you'll need to dry your flooring right away. Alternatively, you can dry mop your flooring or spot clean any messes with a damp cloth. Just make sure you dry afterwards!
