What is Engineered Flooring?
An engineered wood floor is constructed of layers of both hardwood and plywood, where solid hardwood is a solid piece of wood with no layers. To be considered an engineered wood floor the decorative layer must be real wood. Unlike laminate flooring, where the decorative layer is a print, engineered floors can only have a natural decorative top layer. There is real wood used in making a laminate floor. Wood chips are used in the core HDF material, but there is no real wood used in the decorative surface.
The decorative top layer of real wood can be any thickness. As a general rule, thicker top layers provide longer life and can be sanded more times. It’s also worth noting, that a thicker top layer can add to the cost.
Hardwood flooring is a great way to add timeless pizzazz to any room! What should you consider when making a choice between engineered and solid hardwood? Let’s learn about engineered hardwood:
