Engineered hardwood flooring is a mix of multiple layers of wood veneers and a synthetic material that are laminated together to form each plank of flooring. This synthetic material serves as the bottom layer and is generally impervious to moisture. This resistance to moisture from below makes this an excellent choice for concrete subfloors and rooms that are below grade.
The disadvantage of laminate cabinetry and countertops is that they are layered. Over a brief time of just a few years, laminates can and most likely will de‐laminate (peel apart). As the humidity levels and temperature rise and fall through the cycle of bathing and showering, laminated wood is constantly expanding and contracting. These frequent changes greatly accelerates the separation of the laminate from the compress board subsurface which it is glued. Instead of getting 10 to 15 years or more of a perfect looking bathroom, a homeowner will likely experience warping and a bubbling up of the laminated vanity top or laminated vanity itself, leading to chips and cracks.
