Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood flooring is one of the top choices for beautiful and durable wooden flooring. This type of wood floor provides the aesthetics, quality, style and durability that solid hardwood does, at a lower price. Additionally, it is more resistant to temperature fluctuations and moisture. Engineered hardwoods will enhance your home’s design and also lasting value.

What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

Engineered hardwood flooring also known as EHF for short, is in fact made out of real wood. However, it is not one solid piece of wood.  Engineered wood flooring planks are manufactured in multiple layers of wood veneers stacked and glued together. 

The top "wear layer" consists of a thin, solid piece of hardwood. This top layer is what gives engineered wood floors the beautiful look of solid hardwood. Just like solid wood flooring, engineered hardwood is available in a variety of species. The most common being Oak, Red Oak, White Oak, Maple, and Hickory.

The inner core layer of engineered flooring or the sub-layers, typically consist of plywood. In order to maximize strength, the grain of each sub-layer runs at ninety degrees to its neighbor. This variation in direction not only increases the overall strength, it also enables the wood to remain stable during temperature and humidity changes. 

Most hardwood floor refinishing professionals can refinish engineered hardwood flooring much like solid hardwoods. Although, this refinishing can limited according to its surface depth. Engineered flooring typically ranges from 3/8” to 3/4” thick in comparison to solid hardwoods being 1/2” to 3/4“ thick.

Engineered hardwoods provide an excellent real-wood look and have very high durability. This type of wood flooring is usually always pre-finished wood planks. It is significant to also note that the cost of EHF is significantly lower than that of solid hardwood.

Benefits of Engineered Wood Flooring Include:

  • Suitability for most levels of your home, even below ground
  • Natural beauty and appearance
  • Easy care and maintenance
  • Ability to refinish the flooring one or more times, depending on top layer depth
  • Available in a wide range of styles, colors and finishes
