The engineered wood flooring is a flooring made of a base of real wood, plywood (Cherry Veneer ) and a cladding bonded to the base . This is the plating that gives the appearance to the floor and which are found in some species. The engineered flooring is designed to provide greater stability, particularly where moisture or heat pose problems for the hardwood floor.
The instability of hardwood flooring is usually caused by heat and humidity. In adverse conditions, the hardwood flooring can warp, swell or crack. The engineered flooring solves these problems with its multilayer boards that counteract the effect of torsion to stay flat and intact. The properties of engineered flooring make the best choice for installation near sources of heating, on concrete or damp environment. Plating or the top layer is usually a thickness of 3.5 mm or more upon request.
If we compare the appearance of hardwood raw floors, engineered flooring retains its natural beauty. The top layer is made of the same hardwood found in the floor of raw wood. This look is available in maple, white oak and red oak. The wood veneer gives the appearance of hardwood floors by what they are both natural wood. The various appearances are the result of different ways with which the wood was sawn. The same finish as solid wood floors are offered.
