About engineered flooring


Here’s what you need to know about engineered flooring

With engineered flooring, you get an excellent combination of benefits, appearances, and options all with the great look of real wood. That's because the flooring features a veneer of real wood, in the species of your choice, layered between a stable backing layer and a protective wear layer.

Deciding on the best options for your own home is easy when you enlist the help of a local engineered flooring retailer. There, you’ll get all the information and assistance you need to make sure you choose the very best for your specific requirements.

There’s no reason to steer clear of engineered flooring

Engineered flooring looks just like solid hardwood flooring and acts much the same as well. For instance, you can choose the perfect species, have it stained in the color you prefer, and you can even refinish the materials, depending on the thickness of the real wood veneer.

Unlike the solid variety, however, engineered flooring works perfectly well in below-grade spaces such as basements. Since it doesn't react in the same way as the solid material, you'll find it a much stabler flooring under damp circumstances where temperature changes are always happening.

Additional benefits include no need for expansion gaps in most spaces and excellent durability that includes resistance to stains, scratches, scuffs, and daily wear. It's perfect for homes where children and pets live, as well as households that are highly traveled.

In general, engineered flooring is easier to install than solid hardwood, but should still be left to a professional from your local engineered flooring store. Our installers are trained, experienced, courteous professionals who will work hard to make sure the installation of your new flooring lives up to your specifications and preferences.
