Engineered Hardwood Flooring is a fantastic alternative to solid hardwood flooring as it has more dimensional strength, it can be less costly, and once it's installed, it is very difficult to distinguish between the two.
As the top layer is real wood, engineered hardwood flooring can be found in a wide range of species, colours and finishes, just like solid wood flooring
Engineered wood flooring provides better stability and resistance to variations in temperature and moisture. It looks like solid wood flooring as the top layer is real, solid wood but it has a plywood base construction underneath. The top layer of hardwood runs perpendicular to the plywood base, which 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 in temperature such as utility rooms.
