Solid hardwood, as the name implies, is a solid slat of wood. Engineered wood flooring for a Kansas City home is a thin layer of a particular timber glued over a sheet of plywood.
Engineered wood floors offer the look and feel of timber flooring, but are much more affordable than solid hardwood. However, keep in mind that you will need consistent hardwood floor refinishing for any homes in Kansas City or surrounding areas
. A contractor can sand down solid wood floors far more often than engineered wood, so solid timber slats last longer over time. Our trained and knowledgeable flooring installers can help you decide if solid or engineered wood floors are right for your home.
