Like solid wood, engineered wood is available in many species, stains, and styles. Boards are composed of separate plywood layers that are bonded together to form an inner core. A thin layer of hardwood is bonded to the top of this core. Because of its engineered construction, the core is less likely than a solid wood core to contract, expand, or shift when exposed to fluctuations in temperature as well as moisture and humidity. Therefore, this floor covering can be installed in basements with a moisture barrier and over a concrete slab or radiant heating system. Generally, it’s not a good idea to install it in bathrooms. While not as long-lasting as solid wood, high-quality, engineered hardwood flooring has a long lifespan of 25 to 30 years.
