Engineered wood floors are layered. At the top are a slice of genuine timber with all the knots, wormholes, grains, and beautiful undertones. Underneath are at least three layers (but preferably more) of genuine wood combined with a little resin and placed in a crosswise position.
This gives it stability and an increased ability to handle wood. No acclimation is necessary and it can be installed in any house grade level, including the basement. Thickness ranges from ⅝ to ¾ inch. Thicker is better and depending upon that it can be sanded and refinished once to four times.
The finish is the clear top coating that protects the floor. Many floors come prefinished, but if you need to choose, there are water and oil-based ones, as well as polyurethane. A stain is not the same as the finish. A stain adds color, but you can also leave the wood its natural hue.
