What wood flooring is best for below grade?

Below Grade Flooring

In most regions of the country, your best option for below grade wood flooring is engineered hardwood. Because of its durability and adaptability to shifting moisture levels, engineered hardwood flooring is the optimum choice for basements or other floors that are concrete (or have fewer than 18 inches of ventilated space).

Most manufacturers do not recommend solid hardwood flooring installed directly onto a concrete subfloor.
