The difference between engineered and solid hardwood flooring lies beneath the surface. That means that regardless of which type you choose, you'll enjoy the classic beauty that has made hardwood a prized flooring material throughout the years. Floorz by Bill brings a large selection of the latest wood flooring styles to Trenton, Michigan. We offer three ways to shop: private showroom appointments, shop at home, and shop virtually.

Solid wood

You have a choice between unfinished and prefinished planks when you opt for solid hardwood flooring. Brands that are sanded, stained, and sealed in the factory rather than the home are usually backed by more extended finish warranties. But when bare planks are installed in the house, they are situated close together so the floor can be well sealed. This type of floor has a flush look. A floor constructed with prefinished planks has a beveled look. Greater customization is possible when you choose bare planks, plus it's easier to repair the damage that occurs in a small area.

Engineered wood

A tough sealant also protects factory-finished engineered wood. And if you choose this floor covering, your wood floor will have a beveled look. There are two significant differences between manufactured and solid wood: water tolerance and installation method. Engineered wood does not warp or buckle when it is exposed to moisture because of its makeup. Usually, nails are not used when engineered flooring is installed. Instead, this floor covering is designed for glue-down or floating floor installation. Floating floors are not attached to the subfloor.
