Three Things about Engineered Flooring

Difference between Engineered Wood vs Solid Hardwood

Engineered wood is a layered product consisting of effective but thin hardwood chips and high-quality plywood. Most engineered hardwood floors are pre-finished. Sanding is one of the biggest differences between solid wood flooring and engineered hardwood flooring. Manufactured wood flooring can only be polished once or twice.

Engineered wood is better at handling moisture than solid wood. Its plywood base is dimensionally stable, which means it is less susceptible to deformation and bending when in contact with moisture than solid wood. The plywood fibers are distributed horizontally, and their structure is much more stable than parallel solid wood fibers.

The Style of Hardwood

Engineered hardwood can provide a variety of styles for your house furniture.

Today, popular trees that can be used to make furniture or floors mainly include hickory, oak, and maple. Take flooring as an example. Common hardwood floors mainly include walnut engineered wood flooring, pecan hardwood flooring and maple engineered flooring. Engineered hardwood can be made into a variety of matte, semi-gloss and high-gloss finishes.

In order to increase the visual interest of the floor, engineered hardwood has various surface effects, such as scratching by hand to give it an old look.

In fact, no matter whether your home style is classic or modern, it is not difficult to find the most suitable hardwood floor. Installing engineering hardwood floors can ensure that it is a beautiful, eye-catching and durable surface product.

The thickness of homebase engineered wood flooring ranges from 3/8 inch to 1/2 inch. The standard width is 3 1/4 inches, and the board size starts from 5 inches wide.

How Long Will Engineered Wood Floor Last?

The thickness of the veneer laid on the floor, the quality of the floor and the degree of maintenance of the floor determine the service life of the floor. Under normal circumstances, engineered hardwood can be used for life. There are many design options for engineered hardwood, such as gloss and different styles.

Thanks to the innovative manufacturing technology, engineered hardwood can be installed in any room in the home, including basements and bathrooms.

In order to maintain a better foot feel and a longer service life, the three-layer solid wood composite floor has a thicker hardwood surface, and the quality varies greatly. Generally, it is better to renovate once more than 10 years. The refurbishment frequency of solid wood composite floor should not be too high, and the service life can exceed 30 years. If there are small scratches on the engineered hardwood, you can use wax repair tools or cotton swabs and some alcohol to repair.

Laminate flooring is not as thick as engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood contains a layer of solid wood, while laminate flooring is covered with a wear-resistant layer that looks like a wooden surface. The disadvantage of parquet engineered wood flooring is that its abrasion resistance is not as high as that of high gloss laminate flooring.
