engineered wood flooring vs. porcelain tiles

Engineered wood floors and tiles are both attractive and durable materials.
They all have their own advantages and disadvantages, which makes them suitable for very different applications.
Understanding the nature of engineered wood and tiles and their limitations will make the choice between them easier to make.
Engineered wood floors are made from three to five layers of hard wood skin glued together.
It is a natural wood product that should not be confused with laminate flooring, a synthetic product that looks like solid wood.
The veneer in the engineered wood floor is placed alternately, so the tendency of the wood to expand and shrink as the humidity changes is balanced between the layers, making the material more dimensional and stable than the solid hardwood floor.
There are many widths and finishes for the engineering floor.
Ceramic is a ceramic material that is harder and more dense than other types of ceramics.
All the tiles are made of clay, which is formed at high temperatures and then baked in the kiln to form a hard and wear-resistant material.
The tiles are fine-
Ceramic clay fired at a much higher temperature than other clay.
The finished product has a tougher, less porous surface than other ceramics.
Due to its dimensional stability, engineered wood flooring can be installed almost on any floor or even on a concrete Board, an unstable surface that is not suitable for solid hardwood flooring.
It is best to install the tiles on the flat plate because the movement and bending of the floor can cause the tiles to break or the grouting between the tiles to break.
Due to its greater weight, porcelain is more vulnerable to this damage than other types of tiles.
The tiles are very durable, and the hard surface is resistant to scratches and scratches.
Wooden floors are relatively easy to scratch, and the thin surface finish of some engineering flooring materials makes it difficult or impossible to repair.
If there are extra tiles on hand, the broken tiles are relatively easy to replace.
Ceramic tiles, especially porcelain, have good waterproof performance and are ideal for installation in wet areas of the home, while wooden floors are vulnerable to water damage.
