Engineered Hardwood Flooring–an Overview

Hardwood flooring is one of the more beautiful and long lasting types of floors for your home or office. Hardwood floors add richness, elegance, and style to anyenvironment. Well installed and maintained hardwood floor is the foundation that the décor of a room is based on and sets the mood of tone of the environment.

Engineered hardwood flooring is composed of three to ten layers, called plies that are glued together. This layered construction makes wood flooring stronger than solid wood. Engineered wood floors allow homeowners to use hardwood flooring in areas of the home that they would never have considered in the past.

Most boards come with a factory finish that will outlast one applied in your home on solid wood, and they’ll be ready for use as soon as they are installed. Engineered hardwood flooring is also a problem-solver, allowing you to use them where solid wood flooring can’t go. Places in your home such as basement or directly on concrete slabs are generally not suited for solid hardwood flooring. Another great feature about engineered hardwood flooring is homeowners with little to no experience can install it themselves, saving a ton of money and getting great results after a weekend of work.
