What is engineered wood? -  Engineered wood is a thin layer of solid wood glued to several layers of pressed composite materials. Solid wood, is a "solid plank of wood" and engineered wood, is pressed layers with a thin solid wood top.

What are the benefits of engineered wood over solid wood?  - Well mostly the expense. As you are getting less of the natural material and lot more of the man made material, it works out a lot cheaper. Also the installation process is less labour intensive, so you will also save money on installation with its nice and easy click into place system. No nails, no glue just click away.

Engineered wood may not be o'naturale but certainly looks it! Don't forget you have a real solid wood top, so no one will ever know it's not the real deal.

Like solid wood, engineered wood doesn't work well with water, so it's not recommended in bathrooms and all water spillages must be cleaned up straight away. Any water left to settle or absorb could damage the appearance, also causing expansions which could cause your floor to pop and un-click.

To sum it up, engineered wood gives you the stunning solid wood look at a cheaper price, with hassle free installation. Just make sure your floors are nice and level before installing your new floor, as click systems need a solid level base, to stay clicked in place.
