Not all hardwood flooring has the same level of strength, so be sure to explain precisely how and where you plan to install and ask about the Janka Scale, a rating system to determine the hardness of the wood. Consider thickness for both solid and engineered because that determines the number of times the wood can be sanded. The ideal thickness for solid is ¾-inch, and it can be sanded up to six times. Engineered has a range from ⅝ -inch to ½-inch, and thicker is better; depending on that number, it can be sanded up to five times.
