Facts and Misconceptions about Engineered Hardwood Floors

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Engineered hardwood flooring is a popular alternative to solid hardwood. The difference between the two is that a plank of solid hardwood is one cut of wood all the way through. A plank of engineered hardwood is a cut of solid wood on top of a compacted layer of composite wood. In this way, you can sometimes get the look of hardwood at a more affordable price. Engineered hardwood can even be used in locations that solid hardwood can’t, such as the basement.

The Benefits of Engineered Wood Flooring

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

Wood floors add a certain aesthetic appeal to your home that other flooring options simply cannot compete with. But sometimes hardwood flooring can be a little too pricey for the cost-conscious homeowner. If only there was a cheaper and equally appealing alternative…

Wait, there is!

An engineered hardwood floor is the perfect cost-effective and durable alternative to natural hardwood flooring. Engineered wood flooring is a combination of real finished wood on top of non-finished plywood. The additional layer of plywood (laid in a cross-way pattern) provides additional support and durability.

Choices include:

•      Hickory

•      Oak

•      Bamboo

•      Maple

•      And much, much more!

With so many choices available, it is easy to find an engineered hardwood floor to match your existing décor.

Other Advantages of Engineered Hardwood Flooring:

•      Pre-Finished: It has already been sanded and sealed, reducing installation time and cost (not to mention mess).

•      Easily Sanded: Unlike laminate flooring, engineered hardwood can be sanded to repair scratches or stains.

•      Withstands Moistures: Unlike traditional hardwood, engineered hardwood can be installed in areas of moderate moisture.

•      Easy Installation: Engineered hardwood can be nailed down, glued down, or used as a floating floor.

So if you are considering hardwood flooring for your home, but you do not want to deal with the expensive and often messy installation process, give engineered hardwood a look. You might be surprised at just how much you love it!
