Let's begin with a simple fact: There are two types of hardwood flooring systems on the market today: Engineered and solid wood. Each of these types has its own pro's and con's, and knowing the differences between the two can help you make the right selection.
We also carry about 335 options in engineered hardwood. Myrtle Beach consumers love this fact about Young Interiors; our huge selection. Our engineered line of wood flooring includes virtually any wood species you can think of, including the exotic species. Engineered wood flooring can be installed anywhere in the home or business, even below grade. These systems are normally stapled to the subfloor, but they can also be glued down or installed as floating floors in some cases.
The big difference between engineered and solid, aside from cost (engineered is less expensive) is installation locations. As mentioned above, solid wood can only be installed in areas where moisture, or even high humidity, will not be present. Because of its construction methods, engineered wood flooring does not have that issue, and can be installed anywhere.
