Engineered Wood Hardwood
Hard surface flooring comes in a variety of styles, from authentic white oak hardwood to resilient luxury vinyl that closely resembles real hardwood right down to the grain patterns. When there are many options available, it can occasionally feel overwhelming and a lot of questions pop up. What, for instance, are the differences between solid and manufactured hardwood?
Solid hardwood is a single piece of wood with no layers, as opposed to engineered wood floors, which are made of layers of both hardwood and plywood.
Adding hardwood flooring to a space is a terrific way to give it a classic flair. What factors should you take into account while choosing between engineered and solid hardwood? Learn more about engineered wood here:
- Engineered hardwood construction has durable, high-performance qualities.
- It is constructed with multi-layers of wood; each layer is positioned in a different direction. This construction prevents the engineered hardwood from warping and bowing the way a hardwood floor might in moist areas.
- Its advantage over solid hardwood is that the construction allows for installation in most grade levels of the home, including below ground with a protective moisture barrier installed.
- A hardwood veneer gives the natural wood beauty & look to the engineered floor just as a solid hardwood floor does.
- Engineered hardwood offers easy care and maintenance.
