Installing new floors can breathe new life into your home or business, but selecting the right material can be challenging. Depending on the wood species, plank size, color, and grade you choose, your new floors can impart a feeling of classic elegance, sleek modernity, or welcoming warmth. Home and business owners aren’t limited to traditional hardwood; engineered hardwood flooring combines the benefits of hardwood with improved stability, affordability, and environmental sustainability. If you’re in the market for new floors, reach out to the team at Jason Brown Wood Floors for engineered hardwood flooring installation and take advantage of these benefits:
Greater Dimensional Stability
To understand all of the perks of engineered hardwood flooring, one needs to understand the basics of how the material is manufactured. Engineered hardwood is crafted by adding layers of hardwood to thick, stabilizing layers of either natural wood or plywood. While each manufacturer has its own method, most engineered hardwood products feature layers arranged with alternating grain orientations. This ensures greater stability in the face of humidity fluctuations.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring is More Sustainable
Because engineered hardwood flooring uses less wood than traditional hardwood, it is considered to be far more sustainable. Consumers can have flooring that uses rare or slow-growing wood species without using nearly as much of the rare wood as they would if using solid planks. This can help preserve natural materials and reduce deforestation.
Enjoy Flexibility in Installation
Traditional hardwood flooring is undeniably gorgeous, but it can be a bit tricky to install. Manufactured alternatives, on the other hand, can be installed in a greater range of conditions and circumstances. Engineered hardwood can be installed below or above grade, and some products can be installed above radiant heat systems. Tongue and groove planks are common, allowing for easy installation.
