Engineered wood flooring in a Baton Rouge, LA home

Should you choose engineered hardwood or luxury vinyl flooring?

Many homeowners prefer the wood-look appearance in a more affordable material, which both engineered hardwood and luxury vinyl flooring offer. Today, we're going to discuss which one might be best for your home based on various factors, so read along now to find out more about these products.

Hardwood flooring and wood-look materials

Luxury vinyl easily mimics the appearance of natural solid hardwood flooring, from the beautiful grain patterns and colors to the species selection and finish type. As a result, your guests may think they are walking on natural wood floors.

If you need an option that is 100%, waterproof luxury vinyl is best but engineered wood floors are natural hardwood flooring. Their construction is layered and doesn't include a through-body solid wood profile, but the top layer is natural wood and can be treated as such.

Engineered materials are an excellent alternative to solid wood in below-grade spaces and offer additional protection against daily wear, even though it only has about 30 years, compared to the extensive lifespan of solid wood. However, you can refinish these materials, extending the floor's lifespan and keeping them looking beautiful, even after decades of use.
