Similarly, it is asked, what is the difference between prefinished and engineered hardwood?
Appearance – There is barely any difference in appearance between pre-finished solid and pre-finished engineered wood simply because the top wear layer of an engineered plank is made from the same material as a solid wood plank.
One may also ask, can prefinished engineered hardwood floors be refinished? ” The answer is generally “yes,” as long as the pre-finished (or site finished) floors are solid hardwood. If the flooring is engineered hardwood, the answer is usually “No.” Rather, there is pre-finished wood and there is engineered wood.
Herein, which is better solid hardwood or engineered hardwood?
Engineered wood is better than solid hardwood at dealing with moisture. Its plywood base is dimensionally stable, meaning that it warps and flexes less easily upon contact with moisture than solid wood.
What is a prefinished hardwood floor?
