What is Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

Autumn Brown EmSmEngineered hardwood floors were introduced in the 1960s but have made vast improvements over the years. Engineered hardwood floors are simply a wood veneer skin of some wood species with a series of thin wood layers glued together to make a plywood board or sandwich. They are available to consumers in a variety of wood species with dozens of textures including smooth, hand scraped, wire brushed and more. Newly manufactured hardwood floors can have the look of a charming rustic Barnwood floor or a high end contemporary style.

Engineered hardwood floors have a lot of benefits that the old solid wood flooring does not. For instance, engineered hardwood is also manufactured with a factory finish that is stronger and longer lasting than any stain applied on a solid wood floor making it longer lasting and less maintenance. Engineered hardwood floors are ready to be walked on the day they are laid down. They are also able to be installed in areas solid wood floors cannot be such as basements or directly on a concrete slab.

Engineered hardwood floors are beautiful, durable and easily and quickly installed. ProSource carries a wide variety of hardwood floors from all the top manufacturers. There is an engineered hardwood floor for every home.
