High-Quality Engineered Hardwood Flooring Can Stand the Test  of Time

Did you know that high-quality engineered hardwood flooring can last for years and years, and look as beautiful as it did the day it was installed? Some consumers are mistaken when they automatically assume that since engineered wood flooring is not the same as solid hardwood flooring, it will not last as long. It is true that solid hardwood, if properly maintained can last for centuries, but engineered wood flooring can last for decades if it, too, is correctly maintained. The two big differences between the two is: Installation techniques and cost.

At Wholesale Flooring & Granite in Baton Rouge, LA, we know hardwood flooring, and we have more than 290 different engineered hardwood flooring options available to our customers. These flooring systems come from companies such as Mohawk, Bella Cera, Anderson Flooring, and Harris Wood, to name only a few. These are top-name brands and this is important as we will see in a moment.
The engineered hardwood flooring that we sell can be installed in a variety of ways that include: Nail down, glue down, staple down, and floating. This means that you can install engineered hardwood over virtually any type of sub-floor, including concrete. And because it resist moisture much better than solid wood, it can be installed below grade.

Quality engineered wood flooring can be refinished just like solid wood flooring. This is something most consumers do not know. The number of times engineered wood flooring can be refinished depends upon the mill thickness of the veneer surface. The thicker it is, the more times you can sand it down and refinish it. This is one reason why engineered hardwood can last so long!

And, of course, you cannot discuss wood flooring without addressing cost. It is simply a fact that engineered hardwood flooring is less expensive than solid wood flooring.
