What is the Difference Between Engineered Hardwood Flooring and Traditional Hardwood?
Engineered hardwood is comprised of three to five layers of wood compressed together using heat and pressure. It exists so people in humid climates can still enjoy all the benefits of hardwood without it deteriorating over time due to the humidity in their area.
It comes in three types for different building levels, the reason being that humidity in a building varies depending on the level of each floor. Below grade is for basements or sunken rooms. On grade is for ground-level rooms. Above grade is for second-floor or higher rooms. These levels and the engineering of the wood prevent the expansion and contraction that hardwood normally sees in humid areas.
Unlike traditional hardwood, engineered hardwood can also be installed over concrete, which is a relief for hardwood-loving homeowners with concrete floors who are looking to renovate!
An added plus, engineered hardwood can be given a handscraped finish if you want your floors to look like they have been around for a long time. This basically changes the texture of the wood and makes damage to your floors less noticeable. Want to get started on your engineered hardwood flooring?
