If you're wondering if engineered wood floors are made with natural wood, the answer is a resounding yes. While the backing layers are created using perpendicularly layered plywood, the veneer layer is made of natural, solid hardwood in your species' choice.
Engineered floors are created to last
The plywood used to create the backing layers of your engineered flooring is natural wood and creates a very versatile, stable foundation that attaches well during installation. The veneer is a piece of solid hardwood that comes in a wide variety of species options, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.
Oak is an excellent choice for busy homes, offering a hard surface that wears slowly over time. A protective wear layer is added for protection from scratches, scuffs, stains, and dampness.
Much like solid hardwood, engineered floors can be refinished once wear finally begins to show, but the number of times this can be accomplished depends on the original thickness of the actual wood layer. The thicker the veneer, the more times the flooring can be refinished, up to several times.
During the refinishing process, you have the option to change your stain color and finish type if you prefer. If you have more questions about these materials, be sure to visit us at your convenience.
