How Durable Is Engineered Hardwood?

Engineered hardwood is made completely out of wood. The top layer is a veneer of the desired hardwood. Engineered hardwood is certainly more solid than traditional hardwood or laminate flooring. That being said, it is still made of wood which by nature can still scratch.

Engineered Hardwood Maintenance

Maintaining engineered hardwood floors is similar to maintaining traditional hardwood floors. Engineered hardwood floors are made of wood and do not fare well in damp or wet conditions. If you spill on your engineered hardwood floors, wipe it up as soon as possible. Like traditional hardwood, you can refinish your engineered hardwood floors to get rid of stains and scratches. That being said, engineered hardwood only has a veneer from 1.2mm – 5mm to work with. You should consult the manufacturer on if, when, and how you should refinish your engineered hardwood floors.

How Long Do Engineered Hardwood Floors Last?

Engineered hardwood floors last quite a long time. Between 20 and 30 years is how long they are expected to last. You can extend the lifetime of your engineered hardwood floors by keeping them clean, performing the required maintenance, and being gentle with them.
