If you are choosing brand new flooring or replacing your current floor covers, you might just want to consider engineered hardwood flooring as an option. Wood floors are a timeless and impressive addition to any residential or commercial interior. Instead of solely looking at your solid hardwood options, we think you could be just as satisfied with engineered hardwood flooring. The following are a few reasons why you may want to give engineered hardwood flooring a closer look.
A big reason why homeowners and property owners are intrigued by engineered hardwood flooring is because of the reputation for being highly durable. Engineered hardwood boards are made with layers of top-quality plywood and a hardwood upper layer. Despite the process not requiring as much solid lumber to produce a floorboard, the manufacturing process results in a strong and sturdy product. This human-made material is also moisture, rot, and pest-resistant.
Many manufacturers also take the scrap pieces of wood that come from sawing and refining solid wood boards to produce the engineered wood. This makes engineered hardwood a rather sustainable flooring material, which is an important consideration for many environmentally-conscious buyers.
Just because engineered wood is human-made doesn’t mean it will lack that “natural beauty” look. Engineered hardwood flooring comes in various types. With so many options, you’re certain to find a style that suits your aesthetic vision. With today’s top-of-the-line boards and a professional installation, it can be difficult to distinguish engineered wood floors from its natural wood counterpart.
Able to Refinish
Many people know that restaining and refinishing their solid hardwood floors is expected in the course of care. What many folks tend not to realize is you can do the same to some types of engineered hardwood. This all depends on how thick the upper hardwood layer of the board is made. After sanding, your newly refinished engineered hardwood flooring can totally transform a room’s appearance. If done correctly, this won’t damage your floorboards’ integrity, so your floors stay sturdy and moisture-resistant.
