Solid Hardwood Flooring represents a luxurious and traditional method of homemaking. It has stood the test of time and if properly cared for, nothing beats its longevity. If you live in an area with relatively stable humidity and temperature levels, you may need to worry about your floors changing with the seasons. There are some advantages to the thickness of solid hardwood floors. Namely, it gives you the ability to refinish your floors again and again. Sometimes, people sand their floors down in order to remove scuffs and scratches. After you sand the floor down, you can then refinish it with different stains. Because solid hardwood floors are thicker and come in one whole piece of wood so you can sand and re-stain them multiple times. Usually, you can only re-finish engineered hardwood floors one or two times.
