Default Engineered Hardwood Floors over Solid Hardwood Floors

I recently bought my first home (1925) and pulled out all the carpets
to find 3/8" hardwood floors underneath. My floorers refused to sand
the downstairs floors because the boards were coming apart as they were
taking the staples and nails out form the carpet. They think it has
already been sanded and that there isn't enough to sand on the lip now.

I have had another floorer recommend that I put engineered hardwood
down over the orginal. Is there an advantage to this?

Yes, it is easy to install and looks good. OTOH, it is fairly easy to put a
good hardwood floor either over top of this or removed and replace it. That
is just my choice. Many other types of flooring can be used also.
