Engineered hardwood can endure humidity, temperature changes, and potential moisture. It is extra stable because of its layered construction, which prevents it from warping and bowing. The core is made up of 5 to 7 layers of plywood, which are crisscrossed and bonded together. There is another layer of wood on the bottom. The top layer of hardwood comes in trendy styles and species like hickory, oak, maple. Engineered flooring is usually 3/8” to 3/4” thick. As a comparison, solid hardwood is 1/2" to 3/4" thick. There are many finishes available in matte, semi-gloss, and high-gloss, and multiple surface effects such as hand-scraped or wire-brushed.


Since engineered hardwood is moisture resistant, it can be placed in a basement as long as it is installed with a moisture barrier. This flooring, however, is not recommended for bathrooms since continuous moisture is expected. Engineered flooring can be laid over plywood, concrete, existing wood floors, or oriented strand board (OSB) subfloors. It can be sanded and refinished once or twice, especially if you have thick boards on your floor. With proper care and maintenance, the best-engineered hardwood floors can last a lifetime.
