Many of my customers ask whether solid hardwood or engineered hardwood flooring is better, and which is less expensive. Of course the answer is "it depends." It depends on many factors including your subfloor, condition of your sub-floor and what factors are important to you (e.g. ability to sand and refinish, height of floor (relative to other surfaces and/or cabinets and doors), cost, type of wood. There is no "one size fits all" answer.
