Benefits of Engineered Hardwood

Engineered floors have higher resistance to moisture than solid wood flooring. Which means you will notice less gapping in the winter months. Also, engineered flooring (excluding the newer click lock flooring) can be direct glued-down over (dry) concrete slabs above or below grade or stapled down over a wood subfloor. All this flexiility, not to mention quality engineered hardwood flooring has the same resale value as 3/4" solid wood flooring, if you ever decide to sell your home.

Engineered is also more renewable than solid wood flooring.  Since engineered floors are a thick veneer when they are cut from logs they produce a higher yield than solid hardwood.  Because of this engineered floors often cost less than solid.

Finally, because of their dimensional stability engineered floors are available in wider width planks than solid wood flooring.
