I'm sure that many homeowners out there watch one or another home improvement or home reno TV show, and one thing that most of these shows have in common is the installation of engineered wood flooring. But what exactly is engineered wood flooring?


What is Engineered Wood Flooring?

Engineered wood, as the name implies, is a type of wood flooring that is manufactured using a process of binding and fixing strands and veneers into wood planks. The reason that engineered wood flooring has become so popular in the last decade is the advancements made in the engineering process for this type of flooring, and its durability and attractiveness when installed in residential homes.


Until recently, the cost of laying a herringbone pattern was expensive, but with technological advancements in flooring, it was possible to produce this popular design at a cheaper cost.


Not your average laminate wood flooring, engineered wood follows stringent design specifications in order to meet local and international standards. An engineered floor is designed to withstand various applications, whether high-traffic in a home, or commercial applications in office buildings.
