What's more durable:
solid or engineered hardwood?
Solid Hardwood: Solid hardwood is known for its endurance. Because it is solid through and through, it can be sanded and refinished multiple times during a lifetime. And solid construction holds up well over time. Solid hardwood durability mostly comes down to the wood species and wear-resistance of its protective finish. Harder woods such as Hickory and Oak are more dent resistant.
Engineered Hardwood: Depending on the thickness of its wear layer, Engineered wood can also be sanded and refinished several times throughout the life of the floor. If your durability concerns are around moisture, humidity or temperature, engineered is definitely the way to go. Its layered construction provides stability against environmental changes.
