For those homeowners that prefer the absolutely elegant look of solid hardwood flooring, but prefer benefits that are a bit more relaxed, engineered hardwood flooring makes an excellent alternative. You still get the appearance, style, and finish you really want to complement your decor, but you get tons of benefits that don’t fit the solid variety. You can even place the engineered flooring in basements, which makes it a great choice for homeowners who need to floor this space.
Engineered hardwood flooring is still, by all rights, a real wood floor covering. It actually uses a veneer of real wood just below the highly protective wear layer and on top of the core layer. Depending on the thickness of that wood veneer, your flooring can even be refinished, up to several times. You can choose whichever species of wood you like, along with the finish type as well, for a truly personalized look as a result.
This floor covering is extremely durable, giving you a good sturdy surface that stands up to a lot of daily wear and tear. At the same time, it’s easy to clean and maintain and can be placed in more spaces than solid wood flooring can. If there comes a time that your floors become damaged, you don’t have to replace all your flooring. You can simply replace the damaged board or boards, replace it with a new piece, and your floors will look brand new all over again.
Your engineered hardwood flooring in Baton Rouge must be fully acclimated prior to installation. The length of the acclimation period is something one of our associates will discuss with you when you visit us, but it helps to assure no mishaps or damages will occur after installation. Some areas of the country don’t need to acclimate engineered flooring, but when there is a great deal of humidity, it’s always best to take that safe route.
