Benefits of Engineered Hardwood Floors
Engineered hardwood flooring is a great flooring solution. It provides the look and feel of hardwood with additional benefits that solid hardwood floors don’t offer. Some of these benefits include easy installation and the ability to be installed below grade, such as in basements. Engineered hardwood floors are constructed using a layered composition made of a composite of different wood materials and adhesives with the top layer being a real hardwood veneer. This layered construction prevents the natural tendency solid wood has of warping when exposed to moisture. The variable climates of floors below grade as a result of more frequent changes in humidity and temperature are not suitable for solid hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood makes it possible to install hardwood flooring in these areas. This flooring option is a superb choice for almost any room in your Avon home, including living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms.
Scratches and blemishes are fixable with sanding and refinishing, making engineered hardwood flooring practical for high-traffic areas. However, engineered woods can usually only be refinished one or two times before they need to be replaced. The layers underneath the solid wood veneer provide durability and strength to make your investment last a long time.
