Engineered Wood vs Solid Wood Flooring

If you are going to install hardwood flooring, many consider engineered wood a better choice than solid hardwood flooring, especially in conditions of varying temperature and humidity. Engineered wood is less susceptible to dimensional alteration, buckling and warping.

Engineered wood floors are made of a multi–ply plank construction that is designed to allow for expansion without affecting its structural stability. It comprises an inner core of softwood plywood or hardwood, or even high density fiberboard with a glued on top layer of veneer. The layers are bonded under heat and pressure to form a homogenous cross section. The stacking of layers is designed to prevent the inherent tendency of hardwood to expand, contract, cup or warp under diverse environmental conditions.

Engineered hardwood floors are still real wood flooring. Many confuse engineered wood with floors that are made to look like wood such as laminate or vinyl. This is not the case. Your engineered wood flooring will still look as beautiful as solid hardwood, in fact, it just might perform better in your home.
