Engineered Flooring is Real Wood – Really! Both engineered and solid wood floors are made using real wood. Solid hardwood floors are just that – solid wood. Each board of solid hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of hardwood that’s usually 3/4 of an inch thick. Because of its thickness, it can be sanded down and refinished several times. Engineered hardwood is made of a core of plywood with a layer of hardwood affixed to the top surface, usually 4mm thick. It’s more resistant to moisture and heat compared to solid.
