Engineered Hardwood Floors
Engineered hardwood floors are becoming a popular and viable option for flooring treatments for home and commercial spaces. Engineered hardwood is made of several layers of plywood or block and is appropriate for any floor. These layers are underneath a veneer top layer of hardwood. These layers create superior plank stability and better behavior in the presence of unstable excesses of dryness and moisture.
Due to its versatility and the sustainability of the trees used to make the planks, engineered hardwood floors are sure to become even more popular. It is an environmentally-conscious product, and it only uses 1 ½ mm – 6mm of hardwood, rather than 90mm deep when working with solid hardwood planks.

Like solid wood, engineered hardwood is available in many species, stains, and styles. High-quality, engineered hardwood flooring has a long lifespan of 25-30 years, and in some cases, up to 50 years.
Engineered hardwood floors have several installation methods including:
- Floating floor installation
- Glue down installation
- Nail down (like traditional hardwood) installation
There are engineered hardwood flooring options that come with a scratch-resistant finish. However, that does not mean scratches won’t occur. Textured finishes are often the best way to go for high people and pet traffic areas. Cleaning and maintenance of engineered hardwood flooring can be achieved with a broom, mop or a vacuum with a soft brush.
