What exactly is it?

Engineered wood flooring is basically wood flooring that is made from a top layer of real hardwood, and base layers of plywood which give it stability. You don’t actually see the base layers once it has been installed, so it looks exactly like solid wood flooring.  However, the base layers make it more dimensionally stable, meaning that it is far more versatile than solid wood flooring.
