Understanding wood Flooring

Types of real wood flooring according to NWFA

Solid wood

flooring is made of one piece of wood from top to bottom and can be used in any room that is on or above ground.
One of the many benefits of solid wood flooring is it can be sanded and refinished many times.


wood floors are also made of real wood, but include multiple layers, with the
top layer made of high-quality wood.
Because engineered wood floors expand and contract less than solid wood
flooring, they are ideal for basement installations. While this type of
flooring can be sanded and refinished, it cannot be done as many times as solid wood flooring.


engineered wood flooring contains real wood on the wearable surface only. The
backing and core material may be made up of any type
of composite material.
