Whatever type of project you are working on, whether it be office, restaurant, retail, hotel or common area, chances are high end wood floors and wall cladding are desired by the client. Premium, gorgeous wood floors and wall cladding seem to be what everyone wants. But, did you know that not all wood flooring and wall cladding are made equal? You may be surprised at the options you have to bring your vision to fruition. You see, you can go with the traditional Solid Hardwood or newer Engineered Hardwood, but at the end of the day, moisture will make the decision.
But how do you decide between an Engineered Hardwood Flooring product or Solid Hardwood? This is where moisture comes into play.
If you have the freedom to choose, Solid Hardwood would probably be your preference. Just think about it, what’s in your grandmother’s 100-year-old house? What do DIYers hope to find under that shag carpet? Spoiler: It’s Solid Hardwood. It’s going to last the life of your project (and then some) with just the occasional refinishing.
