Engineered wood flooring is a popular flooring choice, despite being a relatively new and innovative development in the flooring world. Engineered flooring consists of a top layer of precious old-growth hardwood placed over a support layer of new-growth, high-density fibreboard. The construction and design of the support layer allow the flooring boards to be produced in an extra wide format while maintaining optimal structural stability. This provides greater value for the consumer and is a more environmentally sustainable choice.
While engineered wood flooring offers a magnitude of choice when it comes to style and design. Besides the ample variety of wood species, staining options, and finishes – there are other concrete benefits of choosing this type of flooring for your home or commercial space.

Aspects like durability and sustainability are also important to consider in order to ensure functionality while maintaining the overall aesthetics of your interior design Keep reading to discover four specific reasons why Engineered flooring is worth considering.
1. Achieve The No Bevel, ‘Finished On-Site’ Look
Engineered hardwood can be machine milled to provide a squared edge, no-bevel seamless look. Being able to achieve this look in a prefinished product takes away all the labour and costs associated with finishing your flooring on-site. This feature provides your foundation of your design with a modern and minimalistic look. Elevate the look of your basement renovation by installing trendy engineered matte hardwood floors or a beautiful wide plank engineered white oak floor.

Engineered wood flooring is often stronger and more resistant to contraction and expansion than solid wood options. Additionally, engineered flooring holds up well over a concrete subfloor and radiant heat flooring. The quality of installation also plays an important part in the durability of your engineered hardwood flooring. So, make sure you hire a certified flooring installation service to ensure that your new flooring is installed properly.

Engineered wood flooring uses the precious, old-growth wood for the top layer to provide a beautiful finish. This means less old-growth wood is needed, and the fibreboard’s support layer provides greater structural stability.
