What is Engineered Wood?

Also known as composite wood or man-made wood, engineered wood is a composite material of scrap lumber and wood byproducts that are bound together with adhesives. Unlike solid hardwood, in which each plan is a single solid piece, engineered wood is layered. Engineered wood possesses the properties of solid, natural wood, but comes a more affordable cost. In fact, when it comes to moisture, engineered wood warps and flexes less than solid wood. While there are fewer wood species to choose from when using engineered wood (commonly red oak, hickory, and Brazilian Cherry), this man-made product. Engineered wood is typically used to manufacture kitchen cabinets, countertops, floors, and more.
