Solid hardwood is a traditional wood flooring option and is made from one solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Solid hardwood preforms best when installed above or on grade, and can even be sanded and refinished. Engineered hardwood floors are made of multiple real wood veneers that are pressed together cross-grain to generate greater stability in the plank itself.
