Hardwood Engineered flooring will lend that classic look of natural wood to any room in your home. This type of wood flooring is ultra-durable and can last anything from 20 to 100 years, and once installed it is hard to see the difference between an engineered wood floor and a solid wood floor.
Originally, hardwood engineered flooring was developed to be used only on the first floor of a home or in a basement, where it could be installed directly onto a concrete slab. Luckily this product has changed immensely over the past 20 years, due to various technological innovations, and can now be used almost anywhere in your home.
This flooring type is made from two, or more, layers of wood which are formed into a plank. These planks range in thickness from approximately 1 to 2 cm. The top layer, which is visible when the flooring is installed, is called the lamella and is connected to the core underneath. Hardwood engineered flooring is very stable due to the layering that is engineered below the top-layer. The layers below the top veneer are very important and can be comprised of up to 12 layers of plywood. Because of its stability and great aesthetic appeal, this type of flooring is a well-known product, universally.
Hardwood engineered flooring is more flexible and adaptable than solid wooden planks, which are heavy and require comparatively more maintenance. For renovation projects, one can install engineered wood flooring without having to remove door frames, since the strips can be trimmed to fit anywhere. Using engineered hardwood is more sustainable and it can be installed in areas where solid wood cannot be used since it is more water resistant than solid wood. This flooring option is easier to maintain and less expensive to install than solid wooden planks
