Engineered hardwood is hardwood that has been manufactured to be more adaptable to changing weather and moisture conditions. It is stable and more solid than regular hardwood, and it does not expand or shrink the same way during changes in temperature. This type of hardwood is made more durable by crafting several different layers of wood together.
Engineered hardwood is comprised of hardwood, with a center layer of plywood or HDF. Since the top layer of these floor boards is 100% authentic hardwood, and is available in almost every type of hardwood species, the boards have a more authentic look, displaying all of the true hardwood characteristics instead of using a photographic layer.
Solid hardwood offers less stability than engineered hardwood, which is mostly attributed to changing temperature and moisture conditions. In less than ideal conditions traditional style hardwood floors can swell, split, cup or warp. By usind engineered hardwood you can overcome these problems in your home because the multiple layers involved work to strengthen the boards and make them more resistant by using materials that stand up better to these atmospheric fluctuations.
The multiple layers resist twisting and buckling because they rely on each other to stabilize their position and in addition the glue layers are impervious to moisture. This makes engineered hardwood flooring a much more reliable choice not only for low-grade damper rooms, but also for installations above radiant heat sources.
