Solid hardwood flooring
Solid Hardwood flooring has been around from the earliest time and therefore it represents the most known type of hardwood floors, besides the Engineered Hardwood Flooring. Interestingly, solid hardwood boards are made solely of 100 percent solid wood, which makes them containing only a single-layer of hardwood. Fitting, on the other hand is very easy, as they are normally nailed to a subfloor platform. However, as solid hardwood is not as dimensionally stable as engineered hardwood is; it should only be applied in surroundings that are temperature controlled around all year.
Engineered hardwood flooring
Engineered Hardwood Flooring is also known as multi-layered hardwood flooring (as opposed to single layer hardwood flooring) is usually made of 3 to 5 layers of hardwood pasted together on a what is known as plywood base. It is superior to solid hardwood as it won’t enlarge or shrink over time and if wetted. It is intended for customers who need superior strength and resistant flooring, as an excellent choice for apartments, underground rooms and other commercial applications. Most often the flooring is fastened or floated onto concrete plain, an already existing floor, or in some cases a heated sub-floor.
