Engineered hardwood is a popular flooring choice because it provides the beautiful look and feel of hardwood with the added durability and an easier installation process. They work well in high-traffic areas and can withstand light moisture. For this reason, hardwoods are popular in kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, and more. The experts at Floor Coverings International Orange County NY outline the benefits of engineered hardwood below:
About Engineered Hardwood
Solid hardwood planks are cut from a solid piece of wood. Engineered planks are made up of several different layers of plywood and unfinished white wood. The top layer is typically a veneer of the desired hardwood. Engineered planks can be installed in all the popular hardwood species such as oak, maple, walnut, and more.
Benefits of Engineered Hardwood
- Unlike solid hardwood, it does not expand and contract with changes in humidity and temperature.
- Depending on the thickness of the wood installed, it can be sanded and refinished a few times to get rid of dents and scratches.
- Engineered hardwood is easier to install, so we’ll be in and out in no time!
- Like solid hardwood, you can pick between different wood species, plank widths, sheens, and textures.
