What Is Engineered Wood Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: September, 2021

refers to materials that have been modified to alter the way they function. It is attractive and adds value to a home.

Engineered wood flooring is made of several layers that include a hardwood veneer, a slice of a species of wood, plywood or fiberboard, and sometimes an additional layer. It is designed specifically to reduce moisture problems and offer a solution that is very low maintenance, cost effective, and higher quality than many laminate products.

Engineered wood flooring is an environmentally friendly product that is typically easier to install over concrete or wood subfloors than traditional hardwood is. It is often more expensive than tile and carpet options, but after you review the many benefits, you may find the cost to be a low lifetime one.

There are many different solutions available at Greatmats - all of which are high performing, top notch products that are among the best available anywhere. Of the numerous engineered wood flooring products, the following 5 represent some of the best and most popular:
