Solid wood that receives finishing treatments in the factory tends to have a longer finish warranty than wood sealed in the home. That's because on-site installers do not have access to powerful factory sealers. Prefinished solid wood floors have a beveled look. As with other types of wood flooring, underlayment is placed on the subfloor. This padding provides thermal and sound insulation.
Engineered wood can be installed in the basement and other moisture-prone spaces. This type of flooring has a plywood base and hardwood surface. Plywood layers are placed in different directions, which makes the flooring resistant to warping when wet. This man-made flooring offers the same look as solid wood flooring. It, too, can be refinished, but probably only once since the layer of hardwood is thin.
