Hardwood flooring has long been loved by homeowners for its natural beauty and its ability to turn any room into a unique work of art.

Learn more about the characteristics and benefits of choosing hardwood flooring for your next project.


For centuries, hardwood flooring has been one of the most popular options for home flooring. It’s a versatile solution offering tons of style variation. Every individual plank of hardwood flooring is a unique piece of nature, prone to change over time with age and wear. This gives every room its own character and charm that will last for decades with the proper care.

Solid hardwood planks are each made from a single, solid piece of real wood. Engineered hardwood planks each consist of a thin slice of hardwood layered on top of another piece of high-quality wood composite, such as plywood. Engineered wood is less durable, but much more versatile. It can be installed on any grade, even in basements.

The durability of your hardwood (and therefore, its longevity) is determined largely by the thickness of each plank, in addition to other factors such as the wear layer and finish. Standard hardwood planks come in a few different thicknesses. A ½-inch or 3/8-inch thickness is common for engineered hardwood planks. Solid hardwood floors, on the other hand, are much thicker. This extra thickness allows for repeated hardwood floor refinishing, one of the chief benefits of solid hardwood over engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood can still be sanded down, but typically only once or twice throughout its lifespan.
