Installing Hard Wood Floors?

My husband and I want to install hard wood floors (not laminate) in two rooms of our house. We want to get oak. Is it better to get solid wood or engineered wood? (We have a concrete subfloor and live in a very humid environment.) And how much (approximately) will it cost per square foot including installation?

    What is a good type of timber flooring to use?

    I am building a new house which my family will live in, I am not sure what type of timber flooring to use.
    We are looking at engineered wood, of the mid-high price range, preferably a dark brown or red in colour, we do not have any pets or young children.
    If you could give me a few recommendations then that would be super!

      What does the thickness of a hardwood floor mean?

      We have to get our hardwood floors replaced. It turns out the builder on our house installed 1/16" hardwood floors, what I’m told is that is rather cheap flooring. We are getting it replaced with either 3/8" or 1/2", my question is this… What is the difference in thickness? What is the benefit to getting a thicker wood?

      We’re going with engineered wood because we have to glue it down to a concrete slab. Any other tips/info you can give would be great, looking for all advice I can get.

                  Thanks
                  The question is not in the price – some engineered wood is more expensive then real one.
                  I heard that engeneered wood will not warp or expand, doesn’t make gaps with time and has better insulation, and generaly easier to lay. Laminate is definitelly our of question.
