In the hardwood flooring world, engineered hardwood has become more and more popular over the last few years as one of the preferred choices for hardwood flooring. Its growing popularity can be explained by the benefits of using this material over other hardwood flooring options. If you’re trying to decide on a flooring material for your next project, here’s why you should consider going with engineered hardwood flooring:
Flexible, Stylish Look
Homeowners choose hardwood flooring because it is stylish and timeless. It has natural lines and patterns that are pleasing to the eye. Engineered hardwood is still just that: hardwood. The main difference being that an engineered product is made up of substrate layers of plywood and is finished with a layer of real wood veneer. The option of having the look of solid hardwood at a fraction of the price can be within reach! Varieties of thickness of that top wood veneer layer vary, giving the customer a level of flexibility in price and quality, and the ability to refinish their engineered floors multiple times down the road. And engineered hardwood flooring can be designed to accommodate any look and can be used in nearly any room of the house. If you’re one of the many customers that love those wide boards, with lots of hand-scraping detail, we carry many options in engineered flooring that can meet your needs.
Easy to Repair
If your engineered hardwood floor does take damage, usually it will be in the form of scratches or dents, as is prone to happen with any flooring. Repairing this kind of damage is usually very easy. A simple buff and coat is usually all that is required to make your hardwood floor looking great again. If the damage is more severe, a professional hardwood flooring contractor can refinish the floor, sanding it down to remove the imperfections and applying a new coat of stain or finish.
Engineered hardwood flooring comes finished from the manufacturer, is usually made of substrate, and always has that real wood veneer top which is replenished faster than other forms of wood. Since the floor comes prefinished from the factory, you won’t have to deal with the unpleasant odors that come with having a new floor finished on-site. It is also environmentally friendly in the long term because its increased durability results in fewer chemicals being used to refinish the floor.
