Engineered hardwood flooring can be a great investment as it adds a natural, timeless appeal to your home, along with warmth and luxury. Engineered hardwood flooring is a great alternative to solid hardwood flooring as it has more dimensional strength, can be less costly, and it is very difficult to tell the difference between the two once they have been installed.
Engineered wood flooring is constructed in a way that it will provide better stability and resistance to variations in temperature and moisture. The best part is that it looks like solid wood flooring as the top layer is real, solid wood but it then has a plywood base construction underneath.
The top layer of hardwood creates the strength and stability of the flooring by allowing it to react to changes in temperature and humidity, meaning that it can be used with underfloor heating and in rooms that significantly change temperatures, such as conservatories and utility rooms.
As the top layer is real wood, engineered hardwood flooring can be found in a huge range of species, colors and finishes, just like solid wood flooring. Engineered hardwood flooring is solidly stable, this also means that it can be installed in different ways.
