Hardwood flooring is not only extremely
durable, timelessly beautiful, and one of the longest-lasting materials on the
market today, but it is also one of the most sought-after floor coverings. Both
solid and engineered wood flooring are available, and today, we will focus on
the engineered variety. Follow along to find out more about what makes this an
outstanding floor covering for many areas throughout your home.
One of the best things about engineered
wood flooring is that it is a perfect alternative to solid hardwood in
below-grade spaces. In these areas, fluctuating temperatures, dampness, and
humidity are often frequent environmental factors, and engineered flooring
stands up well to all these things. But they are just as worthy of inclusion in
many other rooms in your home as well.
If you have pets or children, then you know
that minor accidents and mishaps can happen at any time. Engineered materials are
excellent protection against spills, scratches, scuffs, and other forms of
daily wear. The wear layer, available in various thicknesses, offers this
protection that lasts for up to thirty years or more with proper maintenance.
You have many options that help you to
personalize these floors to your specific décor and interior design. Choose
your species, stain color, and finish, to not only match your interior but to
withstand trend changes as they come in the future. You can even have these
floors refinished up to several times, depending on the natural wood veneer's
thickness. If you'd like to see these materials for yourself, be sure to visit
