#1: Two kinds of hardwood
Solid hardwood flooring is one slice throughout the plank. Another type, engineered wood flooring, has one slice on top, with three or more layers underneath that are made of both genuine wood and other materials. They are placed in a crosswise manner, so that gives it more stability, as well as a better ability to handle water.
Construction is the only difference. That means engineered has a little more versatility in areas where it can be installed; for example, this one is okay for below-grade areas like basements.
#2: It is an investment
Any wood increases property values. We’re also told by real estate sales associates around the country that potential buyers will often pay more for a home with these floors.
