Engineered vs. Solid: Which Type of Hardwood Works Best For Me?


When it comes to choosing the type of hardwood flooring for your project, consider the area of installation. Will there be high humidity or moisture on a daily basis? Will your hardwood floors require maintenance and annual care due to pets, kids, and high-traffic volume? If you answered yes to any of these, you may want to consider   or engineered hardwood flooring. However, solid hardwood can also have its benefits! Keep reading to learn more about these types of hardwood flooring and which style works best for you.

What is Solid Hardwood?


Solid hardwood is carved from solid wood and finished with a stain or left natural. In general, solid hardwood flooring is an interior designer’s dream for the following reasons:

  • Beauty: Solid hardwood offers a timeless look that never goes out of style

  • Money’s worth: While solid hardwood can be a costly expense upfront, it offers a large return on investment (ROI) upon installation.

  • New year, new look: Unlike engineered hardwood, solid hardwood can be refinished and re-stained, year after year!

Did you know? We also offer a waterproof selection of hardwood flooring!

What is Engineered Hardwood?


Engineered hardwood is a manufactured plank that offers much more flexibility. This dense and resilient flooring is made using multiple layers of hardwood and resin. Yes, you read that right - engineered hardwood is made from real wood. Some benefits of engineered hardwood include:

  • Engineered hardwood is water-resistant.

  • This plank is tough enough to handle stains, scratches, and heavy foot traffic.

  • Unlike solid hardwood, engineered hardwood can be installed below grade.

Can You Install My Hardwood Flooring?


Yes! When it comes to hardwood installation, we always recommend a professional installation process. Here at Alpine Carpet One, we offer both professional installation services for most of our flooring options, as well as specific warranty plans. Keep in mind the following for hardwood installations:

  • One should avoid hardwood flooring in the kitchen or bathroom. However, there are suitable selections for your specific design needs.

  • Solid hardwood performs its best in low-traffic, climate-controlled spaces.

If you happen to have pets or kids, we recommend opting for an engineered hardwood product.

We understand that hardwood flooring is a long-term investment. However, when combined with its extreme durability and timeless look, this flooring style will enhance your space for years to come.
