Engineered hardwood


Have you considered engineered hardwood flooring?

Engineered hardwood flooring can be a solution to a wide variety of flooring requirements. It’s an excellent choice for below-grade placement where the wood-look is desired, but it’s just as perfect for every room in your home. With a wealth of characteristics and benefits, you’re going to want to find out more about this floor covering, so read along.

Engineered hardwood has excellent benefits

One of the most popular uses of engineered hardwood is below-grade placement. As a natural hardwood floor covering, it adds the beneficial characteristics of resistance to dampness, humidity, and temperature changes, giving you stable hardwood flooring for all your basement areas. At the same time, it's an excellent option for kitchens, foyers, and other spaces that might experience those same damp conditions without fear of water damage.

These floors are much like solid hardwood, in that you can choose your species of choice, as well as a beautiful stain color and the perfect finish. A species can extend the floor’s lifespan, especially when you choose one that matches your home's traffic levels, while an excellent finish can even work to hide wear like scratches and scuffs. Stain protects your flooring but is most evident in the way it matches your existing décor flawlessly.

These floors are constructed in layers that include a natural wood veneer situated on top of plywood layers perpendicular to one another. This method creates excellent stability that works well over various subfloors and existing floor coverings. They can even be installed as a floating floor, without the use of nails or adhesives.

Engineered floors can be refinished, but the number of times this is possible is dependent on the thickness of the natural wood layer. If you need more information on the refinishing procedure, be sure to speak with your flooring professional. We are standing by to answer all your questions.
