There are two main types of hardwood flooring, natural and engineered. Both types have their advantages, but which one you choose for your house depends on several factors. Invision Hardwood and Décor understands hardwood flooring and it is our goal to help you understand it as well.

Natural hardwood flooring is milled from solid lumber and works well in most rooms. However, it is susceptible to moisture and is not recommended in basements where moisture tends to be higher. This type of hardwood flooring can be sanded and refinished, increasing its longevity and renewing the look of your flooring as it ages. It is also durable and long-lasting. Lastly, natural hardwood flooring is available in various types of wood. This means that you will be able to select a type of wood that fits your design.

The key difference between natural and engineered hardwood flooring is that engineered hardwood is not milled from solid lumber. It may resemble typical hardwood, but it lacks this crucial step. Don’t let this discourage you. Engineered hardwood flooring is resistant to moisture which makes it a suitable choice for basements. Yes, you heard us right. You can install engineered hardwood flooring in your basement. In addition to this amazing feature, it can be sanded and refinished. It is also durable, long-lasting, and available in various types of wood.
