Enginered Flooring Basics

Engineered Hardwood flooring is real hardwood -- the word “engineered” just refers to the way in which it’s made.   And there are many benefits to choosing an engineered product over a solid product.


Engineered wood floors originally were designed for use in places where moisture could not be controlled, such as on a concrete slab. As opposed to a solid piece of wood, which will warp when exposed to moisture, engineered wood planks are composed of multiple layers of wood that are glued, pressed, heated, and then covered with a veneer of wood on top referred to as the "wear layer".

This process makes the flooring less susceptible to warping which occurs when the material expands & contracts. As more & more customers choose wide-plank products, this is a great benefit. Engineered floors with a thin veneer typically cannot be refinished, however, many modern engineered wood floors are made with a thicker veneer that makes refinishing possible.
