When you tell the contractor to install hardwood flooring, you have to choose between two options that can most likely work best for your interior. Whether solid wood or engineered wood, these two floorings relatively don’t differ in how they’ll look in your interior, for both would still give you the classic and warm appeal.
Solid planks or plywood is the usual material that comes to mind when you say hardwood flooring. This flooring type is most effective to install on grade and above grade but less likely in basements or any other foundations due to the ground moisture. On the other hand, engineered wood is a modified type of solid wood with a wood veneer layer over plywood, most preferably to be installed on concrete slabs.
