Engineered-vs-Solid-wood

Solid wood vs Engineered wood

Wood has always been the first love as a choice for the different wood coverings and flooring.

It is always a tough call to make a better choice between the solid wood and engineered wood as both of them are made from 100% real wood.

The main differences can help in getting a clear understanding and can work as a helping hand in making a wise decision.

Basic Technique:

Solid Hardwood is made of 100% a single piece of wood having ¾”thickness and 3.25” width.

Engineered Hardwood consists of 2 or more layers having 3/8” thickness and 5” width.

Installation:

Solid hardwood is nailed or stapled. It is never installed on a floating basis but always has excellent durability.

Engineered hardwood is nailed, stapled, clicked and glued.

Price:

Engineered hardwood is naturally cheaper than the solid hardwood when compared on the basis of the plank size, cost, and quality of lumber and glues.

Eco-Friendliness: 

Solid hardwood is 100% wood that is natural and eco-friendly for the flooring choice.

Engineered hardwood in which middle and bottom layers are made of solid wood, and are bonded by high-quality (high quality) non-toxic glues, are equal in their eco-friendly characteristics.
