Engineered wood products have plys (layers) of real wood that run perpendicular to one another. These perpendicular running plys help slow down the natural expansion and contraction of wood in hot/humid climates. Solid wood is one solid piece of wood, made from one particular species (for example oak, maple, or hickory). It is typically 3/4 of an inch thick but can be as thin as 5/16 of an inch. Solid wood floors can be sanded and refinished a few times by a professional sander and refinisher. Engineered hardwoods provide stronger and more durable surface finishes than solid wood floors. This is because they typically use a combination of both aluminum oxide and polyurethane.

he main difference is that ceramic tile absorbs water at a higher retention rate then porcelain tile. This means that ceramic is more like to crack which is why porcelain is rated for heavy traffic, commercial, and exterior applications. When ceramic tile chips you will see the red clay backing. Many of the porcelain tiles use through body coloring technology where the color goes all the way through the tile.

Thin set is used for bathrooms, smaller tiles, and larger grout joints. Mortar set is a more expensive installation method then thin set.
