In contrast to both types of solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is composed of multiple base layers of plywood, positioned in different directions, and a top layer of hardwood. Because of its construction, this floor covering can be installed in a basement, bathroom, or other moisture-prone space. Like solid wood, engineered wood is durable and ideal for areas that receive heavy foot traffic.
While it takes one day to install prefinished and engineered wood floors, it takes one week to install and sand, stain, and seal an unfinished wood floor. Then one week is needed for the new floor to acclimate to its surroundings. Solid wood is nailed to a wood subfloor. Engineered wood is designed to connect to form a floor that floats above the subfloor. It can be installed over some existing flooring.
