There are solid and engineered constructions. Solid is, as it sounds, one thickness throughout the floor. Engineered is layered. At the top is a slice of authentic wood; that gives it the knots, grains, and beautiful undertones we've all come to expect.
Underneath are at least three layers of genuine wood combined with a little resin. Every layer is placed in a crosswise position, giving the floor more stability and an increased ability to handle water. Other things to know: Thickness determines how many times solid or engineered floors can be sanded and refinished. The ideal thickness for solid is ¾-inch and it can be sanded up to five or six times. Engineered ranges from ⅝ to ½ and can be sanded up to five times.
