Three Reasons Why Engineered Hardwood Flooring is Baton Rouge's Floor of Choice

Picking out the right flooring material for your home is more than just deciding what looks best, as important as that is. You also have to consider the durability, environmental conditions where the flooring will live, how much work you want to put into maintaining it and, of course, the price of the flooring in question.

That's why we at Wholesale Flooring & Granite, would like to draw your attention to engineered hardwood flooring. While it's already an extremely popular choice of flooring material here in Baton Rouge, we know there are still a few of you out there, who might not be aware of the benefits of this incredibly versatile flooring material. Here's what all the hubbub is about!

Moisture Resistance

It can get pretty muggy here in Baton Rouge, and all that extra moisture can really do a number on traditional hardwood floors. While engineered hardwood flooring isn't completely immune to the problems that affect traditional hardwood, it does offer vastly superior resistance to moisture, when compared to its solid counterpart.

This means you won't have to worry so much about buckling, warping, or separating due to moisture, like you do with carpeting or solid hardwood.


Unfortunately, money is always one of the chief things you need to consider when setting out to buy new flooring. For many, solid hardwood flooring is the ideal, but its price is considerably less so. Luckily, people who want the timeless elegant look of hardwood flooring, but lack the budget, have options.

Engineered hardwood flooring's durable wear coatings protect the layer of genuine hardwood veneer that gives the appearance of hardwood, without the sticker shock that comes with it. Even flooring experts have to take their time and really take a good look, if they are to stand a chance of telling the difference between engineered and solid hardwood. In many cases, they can't.


Engineered hardwood is exactly that: Engineered. This means it is built from the ground up, and this process allows manufacturers to build in some pretty serious protections, to help keep your floors looking great for years to come. Coatings made from advanced materials protect the finish of your floor, and help it withstand the rigors of heavy foot traffic, in ways that traditional hardwood can only dream of. This means you'll get a long service life and very little hassle, when it comes to maintaining your floors.
