Engineered wood flooring is constructed with layers of both solid and plywood. The solid wood veneer gives the natural beauty and look of a solid wood floor, while the plywood underneath is crisscrossed and compressed together to help prevent warping or bowing. Engineered flooring can be sanded again just like a solid floor but is a much more stable product and can be used in homes with underfloor heating.
Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic product fused together in a high pressure/heat press. This flooring is graded by the EPLF (European Producers of Laminate flooring) with an AC system (Abrasion Class) This is to help consumers make an informed choice when it comes to choosing a floor. The AC is determined by how well a floor will stand up to certain tests..for example, heat, scratches, moisture & scuff marks. The higher the Ac rating, the better quality the floor.
