If you are considering engineered hardwood for the floors in your home, you will find it an excellent material for various reasons, including outstanding durability and lifespan. But you might also wonder if it's made with natural wood, and that's a question we’ll be answering in today’s post.
Engineered wood flooring is natural wood
Engineered flooring is indeed natural wood flooring, but the construction is a bit different than solid wood. With solid materials, the wood runs through and through as one whole piece. At the same time, engineered flooring features a veneer of natural wood attached to a backing constructed most often of plywood and sometimes fiberboard.
As a part of the hardwood family, you'll get many of the same features with engineered products that you would with solid. For instance, you can choose your species, stain color, and finish type for a personalized appearance that perfectly matches your décor requirements.
Also, just like solid wood, engineered materials can be refinished, up to several times, depending on the thickness of the natural wood veneer. Overall, you can experience about 30 years of lifespan with this floor covering, especially with proper care and maintenance over time.
