Solid hardwood flooring
is an excellent choice for most areas of your home. However, there are some spaces where solid wood floors should never be installed. One such space is any room below grade, or below ground level. Most often, this means basements are off-limits. The wood reacts to moisture, humidity, and temperature changes and can become warped, cracked, or split. The result is a flooring you’ll have no choice but to replace.
In situations that require flooring in spaces like this, you’ll want to find out more about engineered hardwood flooring. Still considered wood flooring, it is a single veneer of real wood placed carefully between a stable backing layer, and a protective top coat. While the backing provides stability in any installation location, the top coat helps to fend off scratches, scuffs, dings, and more.
