Quality engineered hardwood has three to twelve ply layers. They are layered crosswise before being glued, and then pressed together. The inner layers are made of hardwood, soft plywood, or a combination of the two. Along the edges a tongue-and-groove fastening system is incorporated. A thick hardwood veneer is glued and pressed onto the core’s top surface. Almost all wood species are available as engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood is resistant to slightly higher or lower levels of moisture than solid hardwood. It can be used in regions having lower or higher relative humidity levels, or in damp basements.
