Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring is constructed from real wood slats that are adhered together in layers at opposing directions to form a plank. The cross-grain configuration minimizes expansion and shrinking, allowing for a tighter fit while installing and less movement after installation is complete. The two main components of engineered hardwood flooring are the substrate, which can be multi-layered and is usually made with an inexpensive wood species, and the surface layer, which is usually a veneer of a higher quality wood species. Engineered hardwood flooring can vary in substrate construction, resulting in different stability levels, thicknesses, and applications.
