Engineered flooring is a layer of real hardwood laminated atop a stable plywood base. Engineered flooring can be installed as a floating floor or fixed to the subfloor with nailing or glueing down. It is well suited for over concrete sub-floors, below-grade rooms or overtop of existing linoleum/tile. It has the look of solid hardwood floor, but the engineering may resist gapping that real wood can be vulnerable to. Engineered flooring is known for its strength and durability. In our dry climate, wider plank natural hardwood is more susceptible to gapping over time. Engineered flooring is a popular choice to achieve this on-trend look and mitigate potential gapping.
