Engineered floors is actually the more common type of floors. Engineered floors is constructed by gluing together a number of wood plies, with a real hardwood veneer layer glued on top. The plywood underneath the real hardwood veneer is referred to as the core board. As with regular wood floors, the wood is treated with a varnish to protect and beautify the wood.
Advantages of Engineered Floors:
(1) More durable. Engineered floors is available in a range of thicknesses and types, ranging from 3-12 plies and 9mm-22mm in thickness. Because the top layer, also known as a veneer strip or wear layer, ranging from 0.6mm-6mm, is attached to stronger and less expensive under plies, this type of floors is actually more durable than solid hardwood floors.
(2) Stronger construction. Because of the construction process, engineered floors is less prone to water damage and warping than solid hardwood floors, making it a better choice for areas of high moisture. With engineered wood, additional underlayment is unnecessary, although you may still want to have one just for the additional structural stability or height concerns.
Drawbacks of Engineered Floors:
The drawback of an engineered floors is the veneer strip can be relatively thin, making the floor susceptible to damage and refinishing the floor once or twice on average before the floor has to be taken out and replaced.
