Popularity for engineered hardwoods continues to rise year after year in the hardwood flooring industry. This type of flooring supplies the same classic look of any traditional solid hardwood floor for less. Engineered hardwoods additional provide a number of benefits that set them apart from solid hardwoods.
One of the main benefits that engineered hardwood flooring offers is increased moisture resistance. We all know that moisture is the number one killer of all hardwood floors, as it can cause them to swell or contract over time, so having hardwood flooring that is more resistant to moisture is ideal. Standard solid wood floors are more likely to get damaged and distorted when they’re installed in more humid climates, such as basements or semi outdoor patios. Moisture resistant floors reduce maintenance costs and decrease the likelihood of having to replace or re-finish your hardwood floor due to high humidity levels.
An additional benefit that engineered hardwood floors provide include low installation costs, a longer life-span, and click-lock technology for easy installation. Most engineered hardwoods come with a prefinished coat of your choice that increases it sturdiness and makes it ready to install immediately. The finish of engineered hardwoods typically outlast that of solid hardwood floor finished on-site while coming with a 25 year finish wear layer warranty.
