Unlike solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is able to endure higher levels of moisture exposure. This means if you spill something or something leaks, your floor won't be affected if cleaned properly and efficiently. It is also scratch and stain resistant, making it perfect for use in kitchens. It is also able to be used with underfloor heating as it is able to withstand exposure to different temperatures without damaging. Because of this you can enjoy engineered flooring in rooms such as conservatories and basements.
