Engineered flooring format was designed originally for 1st floor, on slab, concrete applications in 3 states Texas, California and Florida. Then engineered became a great choice for below grade basement applications. In some applications Engineered Exotic wide plank 5" or 5 1/4" specifically is NOT a good choice for dry climate markets like AZ & NV or any markets with 6 month heating seasons. Stability is relative as the environment the flooring goes into must have internal relative humidly over 40 % all 12 months.
