Expansion is not a big deal

Says who? I have seen floors buckle down here in less than a year where it essentially ejected one board’s width of flooring.

Like waho6o9 showed, I forgot about the detail under each board.

Again, do not discount what your time is worth. A lot of people say, I have all the time in the world so I’m in no rush. There are also a lot of people with projects that never get finished. I’m thinking they are the same people.

JGM0658, engineered flooring does have its uses where solid hardwood is not recommended. It’s not just for saving money. I also have to say I have seen many engineered wood floors that look way better than solid wood. After all, some engineered floors have solid hardwood on top for the first 1/16-1/4”... there is no reason why it would look any different besides the finish and even that can be the same.
