There are many advantages of having an engineered wood floor, the most noteworthy one is that it can be fitted straightaway. Usually, this type of flooring is more time-consuming as there is more work needed, this floor requires a multi-ply and a cross-laid backing, with a top layer of a specific design. Also, this type of floor is dimensionally stable, and it can be installed in areas where solid wood is not compatible. Another benefit of this floor is that it is better value for money as the wood finish is only used on the top layer. This technique is used to give the floor an expensive look but at a fraction of the cost. For example, if you want an oak finish, the only layer that is oak is the top one, and the lower layers are made of an inexpensive wood such as pine.
