Unlike solid hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood flooring is made up of multiple pieces, consisting of 3 – 12 thin layers of wood. Each wood layer is placed in a different direction and is bonded together using heat and pressure to create a very strong and durable piece of wood, preventing the hardwood floor from warping in environments with a lot of moisture and high humidity levels.
In contrast, solid wood flooring consists of single slabs of wood—making it more likely to shrink, expand, and warp than engineered wood flooring. This type of flooring is ideal for environments with low moisture and humidity.
Although solid wood floors are a great fit for some homes, others require a more sturdy, engineered flooring.

Dog nails and high heel shoes can scratch the surface of hardwood floors, water can leave marks and cause rotting, and general aging can wear the wood down.
