The Many Benefits of Installing Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood flooring is a great option for those looking for the hardwood flooring look with even more versatility. Solid hardwood and engineered hardwood are both durable and look beautiful in almost every space.

Engineered hardwood have an enhanced stability, which makes it more versatile than solid hardwood flooring options. It is more resistant to everyday wear and tear, buckling, shrinking and rippling. The flooring installation is also easier because, unlike solid hardwood, engineered hardwood can be easily installed right over concrete in most conditions.

The difference between solid hardwood floors and engineered floors is that solid wood flooring is just that – solid. Solid hardwood is made from a single piece of thick hardwood. On the other hand, engineered hardwood is made of a core of either hardwood or plywood and topped with a layer of hardwood veneer. Because of its makeup, it can be easily used in high moisture areas of the home, including the basement.
