Engineered Hardwood- What is it?

Engineered Hardwood is a flooring product that continues to rise in popularity. But what is it and why is it a great flooring option?

Solid Hardwood Flooring

First, we should establish some definitions. When people refer to hardwood, it’s historically defined as a single piece of wood that’s milled down to 2”-5” wide planks. Solid hardwood floors are beloved thanks to their durability, staining options, look, and feel. It’s served as a great flooring option for centuries, but comes with its share of drawbacks. Water is the enemy of solid hardwood flooring and makes it a less than ideal choice for a bathroom or washroom. Another downside of solid hardwood flooring is cost; it’s the most expensive real wood flooring option. If water and budget are minor concerns for your project, Solid Hardwood is a great choice that will last decades. At Legacy Flooring Co., we carry two series of Solid Hardwood, Burgess Plank and Cloudland Oak.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Decades ago, the flooring industry created Engineered Hardwood to provide a more affordable option that retains all the desirable qualities of solid hardwood while minimizing its shortcomings. Engineered Hardwood is made of multiple layers of high quality plywood with a hardwood veneer on top. Compared to Solid Hardwood, it’s more water-resistant and usually at a lower price point. It can be sanded and stained 1-2 times depending on thickness. Engineered hardwood comes in wider plank options than most solid hardwoods, up to 9” wide. Flooring trends continue to favor wide planks which look stunning in the popular open floor plan concepts. It’s a great choice for those looking for affordable hardwood flooring that performs exceptionally well. At Legacy Flooring Co., we have two series of Engineered Hardwood, Crawford Oak and Turkey Creek.
