How Does Engineered Hardwood Stand Up To Humidity?

No matter the quality, even the best quality hardwoods expand and contract as the humidity level changes or the moisture content changes in the concrete slab.

When solid hardwood expands, it expands across the grain, which has the effect of making the plank wider. If the plank expands too much, the expansion will cause the floor to change shape. This is known as cupping. When this occurs, your floor will need repair or replacement depending on the extent of the damage. When solid wood contracts, it will contract across the grain as well. With contraction, the plank becomes narrower. This will cause gapping in the floor between the boards.

Engineered wood is 700% more dimensionally stable than solid wood, according to the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), because it consists of multi-layer construction.

In engineered hardwood floors, each layer’s grain is laid at a 90-degree angle to the layer above or below it, canceling out the expansion factor, and creating a more stable product. Because of the way engineered hardwood is manufactured, it will stand up to high humidly and tropical climates without the worries of issues that you would have with solid hardwood.
