Engineered products feature a veneer of real wood on top of several layers of plied wood that creates the beauty and elegance this line is known for, while also adding many other functional benefits. For instance, this is an excellent option for below-grade spaces, as it performs better in humid areas where dampness and temperature variance are much more prevalent. Adding engineered materials is a great way to maintain the continuity of your home’s wood floors without compromising the integrity in certain areas.
Both products can be refinished to strip away years of wear and make your floors look like new again. Solid hardwood can be refinished several times throughout its lifespan, and engineered products can be refinished as well, with the number of times that is possible, dependent on the thickness of the real wood veneer.
