Wet Engineered Wood FLoor
Wood floors, or anything that looks like wood floors, are wildly popular in home decorating.
Engineered wood floors are nice, higher end floors where the body of the flooring piece is a plywood or layered wood with a veneered wood layer on the top of the piece.
In a water damage, the water can go over the floor and under the floor. The water is absorbed from beneath and through all the spaces between the individual pieces.
Often the floor will need replaced.
The floor pictured also had a vapor barrier mat beneath it. The water in this case ran over the floor and down onto the mat. The water did not get below the mat to any large degree however.
Usually engineered floors are glued down with a honey type glue, and are difficult to remove.
