Benefits Of Using White Shanty’s Engineered Wood Vs. Solid Wood
Expansion & Contraction:
The distinct construction of engineered wood forms a rigid structure that does not gap, buckle, or respond to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Solid wood fluctuates a lot, and is mostly used for ground level rooms and above, while engineered wood can be installed on any level, including below ground.
Resistance To Moisture
Compared to solid wood, engineered wood has superior resistance to moisture, which makes them more ideal for use in higher or lower than standard humidity levels.
Engineered wood is constructed in such a way that it has enhanced stability and slightly more resistance to daily wear and tear and buckling.
Rigid core engineered wood is waterproof and a thick wear layer makes it scratch-resistant.
Engineered wood is dimensionally more stable compared to solid wood.
Choosing engineered wood over solid wood helps to conserve expensively priced timber. For every 1 square foot of ¾ inch thick solid wood, you can manufacture around 4 times that amount into engineered wood by utilizing organic materials.
