If you’re looking for an environmentally friendly option when it comes to flooring for your home or office, then look no further than engineered hardwood flooring.
Engineered hardwood is just as beautiful as natural hardwood, but its benefits don’t end there: It’s also more stable, durable and resistant to warping and buckling than natural wood. This means you’ll have to replace it less frequently.
When engineered hardwood planks are built, manufacturers use less of the tree per plank than solid hardwood. The outer layers of engineered hardwood are real hardwood, but the core consists of either plywood, medium-density fibreboard, high-density fibreboard, or recycled pieces of wood.
Manufacturers of engineered hardwood cut down fewer trees, and some even source their wood from managed forests. With these practices, they’re preserving woodlands.
