Hardwood flooring continues to be one of the most popular flooring options in home settings because it offers character and luxury that are simply unmatched. Carpet One of San Ramon is your neighborhood expert when it comes to hardwood, as we offer a wide selection of solid and engineered hardwoods in our San Ramon, CA showroom. Not sure what sets solid and engineered hardwood apart? Let us help!

Solid Hardwood

Solid hardwood is considered the more traditional hardwood option because it has certainly been around longer. Solid wood planks are made from a genuine strip of wood and nothing else. There is no special construction, nor are there any added materials. As a result, solid hardwood floors are strong and thick, so they can be refinished multiple times. In addition, solid hardwood usually has a tight and dense grain pattern that offers more natural character.

Engineered Hardwood

While solid hardwood features a uniform construction, engineered hardwood features a special construction. Engineered wood planks are made from three to seven layers of real wood that are cross-directly pressed together with a strip of real wood. The strips of wood are layered in different directions to counteract wood’s natural tendency to expand and contract. Consequently, engineered hardwood is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood. It can be installed above and below ground, and it can also handle humid conditions. Engineered hardwood, however, looks exactly like solid hardwood.
