Engineered Hardwood vs Hardwood

Engineered flooring is comprised of real wood, but its design features more stability than hardwood flooring. The flooring is built with between 3 and 12 multiple layers of wood and laminate which are glued together under great pressure and heat to form the lightweight planks. Typical engineered wood flooring will have a bottom layer specially treated to resist moisture and a high-density fiberboard as the inner core. The top layer will mostly feature a veneer of real wood and based on the thickness of the veneer; the engineered flooring can be refinished or sanded to extend its useful life.

Solid hardwood flooring, on the other hand, is made of solid wood which has been milled straight from a tree. Unlike engineered flooring, it comprises of the same product or a homogenous product from top to bottom. Depending on the specific type of wood used to make the flooring, resistance to moisture will vary, but the fact remains that they can be easily destroyed if moisture is allowed access. This is, however, not the case with engineered flooring since the laminate at the bottom helps to keep away all the moisture.

Types, Benefits and Applications

It’s a dead ringer for hardwood flooring, easy to install and less prone to moisture damage.

It has now become a darling to most homeowners and real estate developers who desire versatility, longevity and lasting aesthetics for their floors. So loved are the floors that they account for 30% of all the wood flooring sold in Canada and the United States today. They are available in a dozen of wood species, allowing homeowners the flexibility to effect a plethora of designs as far as their flooring is concerned.

Types, Benefits and Applications

Ease of installation
Engineered wood flooring is easy to work and quick to lay, thus making them perfect for both DIY enthusiasts and professional floor installers. No special skills or expertise are required, and if you can follow simple instructions contained in the manufacturer’s manual, then you don’t have to hire an installer to fix the floors for you. With the versatility of engineered wood flooring, they can be installed in any place where you would install solid wood floors, and especially in areas where solid wood floors would not be ideal. Some of these places include-:

In the basement
Moisture is number one enemy of basement floors, and when solid wood is installed, it will be just a matter of time before the moisture causes extensive damage to the floor. Since engineered wood flooring has multiple layers with a laminate on the top, its tendency to expand and contract due to effects of moisture is greatly reduced and this makes it very ideal for installation in the basement. During remodeling projects, the doorways and stairways would be ideal targets for the engineered wood flooring because of their thinness compared to hardwood flooring. They allow for high-quality finishes in great styles and texture which add to the overall quality and value of any remodeling project.

In kitchen and bathrooms
Engineering flooring is superior in handling moisture swings compared to solid wood flooring, and this is what makes it ideal for installation in the kitchen and bathroom environments. However, a lot of caution is needed when the same flooring is to be used in a busy bathroom with lots of drips and wet towels, as well as excessive steam from the showers. A combination of such would compromise the integrity of the boards, and they may sooner or later get damaged. However, for a normal kitchen or bathroom environment, they will always work great as far as limiting moisture damage on the floors is considered.

Tips From Engineered Hardwood Installers

Flooring and Expansion

Other than the great looks of an authentic wooden floor, this is arguably one of the greatest attractions of this type of flooring. We all know that wooden floors do get affected by environmental factors such heat and moisture. They can expand or contract, usually interfering with the configuration of the entire floor. But due to the ingenious construction of the engineered wood, the flooring will never contract or expand like the hardwood flooring.

This feature makes it possible for use in places where wooden floors would never be recommended such as in the kitchen or bathroom environments. In such areas, temperatures and moisture levels fluctuate considerably, but with engineered wood flooring installed, the fluctuations will not amount to much as far as the stability of the floors is concerned.

Natural Look With Real Wood

One of the outstanding features of engineered wood flooring is that they look just like real hardwood. When you install them, you get that authentic look with additional benefits of engineering in the structure and at a relatively affordable cost compared to real hardwood flooring. Besides, they are available in different designs and colors and will complement the aesthetics of just any interior space where they are installed.

The composition of engineered wood flooring features layers upon layers of plywood bonded together under great pressure and finished off with a solid wood laminate at the top layer. This configuration makes the boards extremely tough and with the ability to withstand heavy foot traffic in both commercial and residential environments.
