Engineered hardwood flooring offers a variety of different characteristics and benefits than its solid counterpart. One of the biggest differences is that engineered flooring can be installed in below-grade spaces and even some bathrooms, with the proper water-resistant finish. But as you look deeper into this floor covering, you’ll discover even more benefits, specifically about both finished and unfinished varieties.
