Engineered wood flooring: Engineered hardwood flooring is composed of many layers of composite material with the grains of each layer running in different directions which results in a stable product. There is no set type of wood species for these layers; it can vary, or it can be same as well. The stability afforded in engineered hardwood flooring due to the layers also allows for less contracting or expansion with changes temperature and humidity levels. This makes engineered wood flooring a great option for below grade applications such as basement flooring. The top layer of hardwood is the high quality species wood, and depending the thickness of that top layer can be refinished but not as many times as solid wood.
