The lifespan you can expect to obtain from wood flooring depends on the specific product you choose. Both solid and engineered products are available, and they have attributes that create a separate range of lifespans, so follow along to find out more about them.

Engineered or solid hardwood flooring

Solid hardwood flooring is the longest-lasting material in this product line, providing you with lifespans that can easily exceed 100 years or more with professional installation and regular care. In addition, they offer a through-and-through wood composition with extensive options for personalization in almost every room.

Engineered wood floors are constructed differently than solid wood, with a backing made of perpendicularly laid plywood and topped with a veneer of natural solid wood in the species of your choice. These floors are perfect for below-grade or any other installation and can last for more than 30 years.

One of the reasons both materials last so long is that they can be refinished once the signs of wear begin to show. This service strips away years of damage and wear and allows you the opportunity to add a new stain color and finish, which can mimic your originals or create a whole new look to stay current or have something a little different.
