3 Reasons Why Engineered Hardwood Flooring is the New Floor Covering Superstar

The inexorable march of time brings with it many technological advances in almost every field of human endeavor. And the world of flooring is no different.

We've come a long way from compressed dirt floors or primitively carved stone blocks. These days, modern science, coupled with advances in manufacturing, have brought us many new and exciting options to choose from in the realm of flooring. I'd like to tell you more about one of them, and why I think it's so great. Here are the top three reasons why engineered hardwood flooring is fast becoming the preferred floor covering option:

1. Easy to Install

Due to their ingenious "click lock" system of installation, just about anyone with even the barest modicum of DIY ability, can install engineered hardwood flooring.

This is especially appealing to people who are working within a tight budget and would benefit from saving on the cost of paying a team of floor installation experts. By not paying for an expensive installation service, you can free up that money to be used for other remodeling projects that might otherwise have been outside your budget.

When you consider the already economical price of installing the flooring yourself, the savings really begin to add up!

2. They are Eco Friendly

As time marches on, it has brought with it more than just advances in technology and manufacturing; it has brought the increasing realization that our choices affect the world, and the future, in very real ways.

Because engineered hardwood floors efficiently use wood resources and take less water to make, they are considered a green product. This is also coupled with the fact that factories that produce engineered hardwood flooring use less CO2 than they do for other flooring options.

For these reasons, engineered hardwood is considered one of the greenest flooring options on the market today.

3. They're Versatile

Engineered hardwood floors can be installed in a wider variety of environments. They can be installed below, above, or even on a grade. They also may be installed by gluing or simply left floating.

This versatility opens up the option of a wood floor in rooms where it might not otherwise be possible.

There are many reasons why engineered hardwood floors offer huge advantages over other floor covering choices and these are just three of them that strike me most. I could go on about their durability, moisture resistance, and ease of maintenance, but I will save that for another time.
