Some homeowners may think that engineered wood flooring is not really hardwood flooring. This not true. Yes, there are differences between solid wood flooring and engineered, but these differences are what makes engineered wood flooring better in many ways.
When you shop with us, you will find that we have many species of wood to choose from. The surfaces of our engineered hardwood flooring are made of these same woods. We have, for example, red oak, rustic pecan, birch, elm, cherry, and many, many more. The surfaces of our flooring systems are NOT images glued onto core materials. No. The surface is a veneer of the actual wood that you select. This means you are truly getting a hardwood floor that will last for years, and can even be refinished later on if needed.
Engineered hardwood flooring is moisture resistant
One of the many benefits that you get with engineered wood flooring is that it resists moisture and the problems that come from moisture. Solid hardwood flooring is not moisture resistant, and that means that it cannot be installed below grade, or in areas where moisture is present. Those who want to renovate rooms in the basement, for instance, will want to use engineered wood flooring if they want to avoid the big problems one gets with solid wood flooring installed below grade.
Engineered hardwood flooring is affordable
Lastly, when compared to solid wood flooring, engineered wood flooring is much less expensive. In fact, we carry a large inventory of low-priced wood flooring that falls within the budget of most homeowners.
