Engineered hardwood flooring falls in the middle between laminated flooring and hardwood flooring in terms of durability and cost. Although each of these flooring has its own pro's and con's, it would not hurt to gain as much knowledge of both flooring types. In terms of stability, engineered flooring beats its "competitors" in terms of stability, moisture and humidity resistance. Such advantages make engineered flooring more frequently installed in the bellow-level areas. Due to constant involvement and development of the engineered flooring structure, house owners does not have to struggle with the flooring installation in their basements and laundry rooms.
Since top parts of the engineered floors are made from solid wood, it is almost impossible to distinguish engineered floors from more expensive types of flooring such as solid hardwood flooring. In addition, during the installation process, piles are placed on each other, but in the opposite direction, which gives such great stability.
Over all, if the homeowner does not have any plywood base subfloor (concrete for example), and still wants hardwood floor instead of laminate, engineered hardwood flooring is the way to go. (It is also great for plywood subfloor)
