Engineered hardwood flooring also offers species, stain, and finish options, but you have fewer than with solid wood. The real wood comes in veneer form and is attached to layers of plywood that form the backing layer. A wear layer is placed on top to protect against wear and water spots, making it very durable as well.
The biggest difference between these two materials is that engineered flooring can be installed below grade without worrying about dampness, humidity, or temperature changes. No expansion gaps are necessary, and you even have a degree of water resistance if messes are cleaned up quickly. You can even refinish engineered wood flooring, just as you can with solid wood, but the number of times this is possible is dependent upon the thickness of the real wood veneer.
