What is floating engineered flooring?

Understanding Floating Engineered Flooring

Floating engineered flooring is an ideal option for moist or hot climates where the climate may cause problems for solid hardwood floors. An engineered hardwood floor consists of a core of hardwood or plywood with a hardwood veneer glued to the top layer. Through this type of design the flooring has greater stability in areas where moisture or heat would cause problems providing fewer maintenance needs for the flooring. Engineered flooring is also usually less expensive than flooring constructed of solid hardwood.
