Engineered Hardwood Design
Each plank of engineered hardwood is created with multiple ply layers of fiberboard and a top layer of solid hardwood. The number of layers can range, usually from about 3 to 12. The more layers a plank has, the more resilient it will be in the long run. Each plank is topped with a stain, finish, and wear layer that help to resist scratches and other damage.
Lifespan: Unlike laminate, engineered hardwood can be refinished one or two times in its lifetime to remove surface damage. This will greatly extend the life of your floor.
Durability: The layers that make up each plank offer durability and strength to each plank of engineered wood. The layered design also makes this style of floor better at resisting moisture damage than solid hardwood.
Cost: Engineered hardwood is more affordable than solid hardwood.
Installation: Most engineered wood floors are installed like laminate flooring. Each plank comes pre-finished, and sometimes only needs to be locked into place. This makes the installation process much simpler and faster than solid hardwood.
Options: There are tons of engineered wood flooring styles with different finishes and stains, so you’re sure to find that right style for your home or business.
