The categories of choices are Engineered, Domestic, Exotic, Handscraped, and Stained, and all are not the same price, but close. You may be able to afford something exotic such as bamboo. It is not solid wood. It is a composite wood simulation with the wear resistant plastic surface that is barely distinguishable from solid wood. The same floor in solid wood could cost 3 to 5 times more per square foot. These materials run from $3 to $9 per square foot of coverage, before installation labor. When installed expertly, these are tough and beautiful floors that install more quickly and can more easily be repaired when damaged. For those of you who wince at synthetics, swallow your pride, fewer trees were cut and recycled materials are often used, so it can be “greener”.
