Engineered wood flooring, which looks like solid wood, is composed of thin layers of wood of different thicknesses glued together. The top layer is a veneer, which gives the flooring its color and pleasing appearance. Engineered flooring is the best product for use over concrete, because it resists moisture better than a solid floor. Engineered flooring is generally less costly than a solid wood floor. Composed of a bottom layer, a fiberboard/plywood core, a veneer layer and a tough melamine top layer, is a good choice for a home. The cross grain technology used in engineered wood floors makes it 70% more stable as well as minimizes tension in wood thereby making it more resistant to shrinkage, gapping and warping. Engineered flooring can be re-stained and re-sanded several times. Badly damaged planks are replaceable. Top quality engineered flooring can sometimes be refinished, if the veneer is thick enough. Engineered flooring is preferable to carpet in homes in which people with allergies live, because it’s much easier and quicker to clean thoroughly than any type of carpeting. Special cleaners for hardwood are available
