Engineered Hardwood flooring is real wood from top to bottom that’s normally made using multiple wood veneers or slats of wood glued together at opposing directions. The word “engineered” just refers to the way in which it’s made. There are many benefits to choosing an engineered product over a solid product.

Advantages of Engineered hardwoods
Engineered hardwoods are made of several layers, or ‘plies’ that are glued together in a cross-grain construction. This type of construction is far stronger than a single piece of solid wood; and it’s also more structurally sound–it won’t buckle, gap, cup or twist
Engineered hardwood floors can be installed where solid hardwood floors cannot. You can install engineered hardwood below grade and direct to concrete which you can’t do with solid hardwood floors. It’s so versatile, you can even install it on walls!
The top face is crafted from the finest veneers that provide the most uniform color and the most resistance to seasonal expansion.
Engineered is more dimensionally stable and less likely to warp with seasonal change
