While solid wood planks are milled from one piece of timber, engineered wood planks comprise a plywood and hardwood layer. In particular, the base is manufactured with layers of plywood that are situated in different directions. Because of this composition, the flooring can tolerate moisture. The planks are also designed to click and lock together, so the floor floats above the subfloor. This man-made flooring is a good option for any room in the home. But before placing it in a bathroom, remember that the flooring resists moisture, not standing water.
The installation process takes two weeks if you opt to have your wood floors installed traditionally. It takes one week to install and finish the raw wood and one week for the new floor to acclimate to its surroundings. With its close-fitting planks and tight and well-sealed seams, this floor covering is ideal for kitchens. A hardwood floor can be expected to last at least 75 years. Unfinished and prefinished solid wood can be refinished often when worn, and engineered wood can be finished once or twice.
