What is engineered wood flooring?
Engineered wood flooring is the use of specially engineered boards to create a flooring for a particular space. An engineered board is simply a timber board consisting of multiple layers. The board is more stable than natural wood when used in flooring because it is not affected by changes in humidity which would naturally cause swelling or shrinkage in natural wood floors. This is because the layers making up the engineered boards are arranged such that the grains in the board run perpendicularly.
