Engineered Wood Flooring Advantages

Engineered wood flooring is designed and constructed to provide better stability and resistance when moisture or heat may cause problems for solid wood floors. This type of flooring has a lot of advantages on any other flooring. Here is a detailed account of them:

  • Engineered wood flooring is generally less costly than solid hardwood flooring.

  • It is made with real wood species and looks like solid hardwood.

  • Engineered wood floors are comparatively more resistant to higher moisture levels than solid flooring. They are a better choice for installation over radiant heat sources, damp basements, and in areas not environmentally controlled all year long such as cottages or summer homes.

  • Engineered wood flooring can be installed on any grade level, whether the installation site is above, below or at ground level.

  • Engineered floors can be nailed, stapled or glued down, or floated over a wide variety of subfloors, including some types of existing flooring. These can be ceramic tiles and vinyl flooring, provided these floorings are tightly secured to the subfloor, and clean, flat and dry.

  • Engineered floors are a very easy and fast DIY installation option.

  • Engineered wood flooring is available in many different sizes, species and styles.

  • Some engineered wood floors have a very thick wear layer. These floors can be sanded and refinished as you would with a solid hardwood floor.
