Its durability and wide range of products make engineered hardwood one of the best flooring choices on the market. Unfortunately, many people still don’t understand what engineered wood flooring is, or what its advantages are.

The first thing to understand is that engineered hardwood is real wood, made up of a core of hardwood, plywood, or high density fiberboard that is built in layers and bound together, and a top layer of hardwood veneer that is available in almost any hardwood species. Since engineered wood flooring takes on the characteristics of the selected wood species, its properties can vary greatly from one type to the next.

Engineered hardwood has many benefits over laminate and traditional hardwood flooring. For example, engineered hardwood is:

  • Durable
  • Versatile
  • Affordable
  • Easy to install

Whether you’re looking for something with superior stability for a high-traffic area, or you need a specific finish to match your existing decor, engineered wood flooring can help you achieve the look and feel of hardwood at a fraction of the cost.

Because the quality and characteristics of engineered hardwood can vary so greatly, it is important that you check out the product in person.  To learn more about engineered wood flooring, come down to our Red Hook showroom!
