Solid or Engineered Wood Flooring?
Both options will hold up well over time with proper maintenance. Solid hardwood is actually wood and can be sanded/refinished several times allowing you to change the look of your room. It is vulnerable to humidity fluctuation so it’s not recommended for basements. Engineered hardwood has a real wood veneer that is glued to layers of wood underneath. This product provides long term stability and can be used in basements. It can only be sanded/refinished one or two times due to the veneer thickness.
