Solid or Engineered Hardwood Flooring?

Wood flooring has always been one of the most sought after floor coverings on the market, and for many good reasons. It has an incredibly long life span, is durable and stable, and can be refinished several times. Still, solid wood is simply not the best answer for your spaces in some instances. We are going to talk a little more about that, and what you can do to get around it, as you continue reading.

Wholesale Flooring & Granite knows a thing or two about floor coverings. With hardwood flooring being one of our specialties, it only makes sense that we would also offer engineered hardwood flooring as well. We also know it can be a confusing situation. Trying to figure out which is best for your home, or if it works better in some rooms than others, can leave you a little confused. All you have to do is visit us at our Baton Rouge, LA showroom, and we’ll help you sort out all the details.

Deciding Upon Engineered Flooring

We’ll just cut to the chase and tell you, if you have below grade spaces and still want wood floors, you’re going to want to buy engineered hardwood flooring. The reason behind this is the fact that solid wood simply does not work in these spaces. Engineered hardwood flooring doesn’t react in the same way that solid wood does, in that it doesn’t expand or contract when exposed to moisture, humidity, or changes in temperature. In basement areas, for instance, you’ll have much better luck with engineered hardwood flooring in Baton Rouge than with solid wood.

Engineered flooring certainly isn’t sub-par flooring by any means. In fact, its construction makes it very stable, and it performs well in just about any room of your home. You can still choose the species you’d like, along with a stain color and finish style that matches your décor. It can even be a great extension of the solid wood flooring that already exists in your home, as you can match that look very closely.
