How to choose engineered wood flooring?

- Nov 15, 2019-

Engineered wood flooring is composed of two or more layers of wood in the form of a plank and it has a real wood veneer on the top. The thickness of the real wood could be from 1/4″ to 5/8″, even 3/4″. Under the veneer are many layers of wood which are glued together to form a base which is a plywood-sandwich type.

The prices of engineered wood flooring are very different. First, the price depends on the type of wood you choose. If you can, choose quality hardwood like cherry, beech or maple because they will last longer and they don’t show dents like oak. On the other hand oak engineered wood flooring is the most common one and it’s much cheaper then cheery or maple. 

Second, the price depends on the thickness of the top veneer. Thickness could be 2MM to 6mm, while most veneer thickness is in 4-5mm. The thicker the top real wood veneer is the higher the price is.

Besides, the prices depend on the type. There are 3-layer flooring as well as multi-layer wood flooring. Generally speaking, muti-layer flooring is more expensive than 3-layer because multi-layer flooring is more durable and stable.

 It is better to ask for a well-experienced specialist in engineered flooring who can advice you the best choose according to your budget preference and usage .
