Engineered hardwood flooring: Four FAQs

Engineered hardwood flooring: Four FAQs

If you’re new to the engineered wood flooring line, you will likely have many questions about the products and what they can do for you. The good news is that we have the answers you need.

Finding the answers you're looking for can yield better results for flooring that lasts longer and looks better as long as it's in place. Here are four commonly asked questions about engineered hardwood flooring and their answers.

1. Are engineered floors natural wood floors?
Yes, these floors are real hardwood flooring, featuring layers of plywood topped with a natural hardwood veneer. You can customize engineered hardwood floors with species, stain color, texture, and layout, just as you can with solid wood flooring.

2. What is the lifespan of engineered hardwood flooring?
Engineered hardwood floors can last 30 years with professional installation and regular care. Add surface protection with textured finishes, area rugs, and runners for a longer lifespan.

3. Can these floors be refinished?
We can refinish engineered hardwood the same as solid wood. However, the number of times depends on the thickness of the natural wood top layer.

4. Do engineered floors require acclimation?
Yes, engineered wood flooring needs acclimation before installation, the same as solid hardwood. The process lasts one to three days and helps guard against warping, buckling, and splitting after the installation.
