What is engineered hardwood?
Engineered hardwood is a type of flooring material that is made up of several layers of wood. The top layer is a thin veneer of hardwood, while the underlying layers are made up of plywood or high-density fiberboard (HDF).The layers are bonded together with an adhesive and then pressed under heat and pressure to create a solid, stable and durable plank.
Engineered hardwood is popular because it offers the look and feel of solid hardwood flooring, but is often more affordable and more resistant to moisture and temperature changes.
It can also be sanded and refinished a few times, depending on the thickness of the top veneer layer, which makes it a good long-term investment. Additionally, engineered hardwood is available in a wide variety of wood species, colors, and finishes, so it can be customized to match the style and decor of any room.
