Here are some facts you may want to consider as you browse this flooring line for options of your own.

Consider these facts about engineered hardwood flooring

Some homeowners ask if engineered wood is "real wood,” and we assure you that it is. It has a backing that consists of layers of plywood, laid perpendicularly, and topped with a veneer of natural wood. Just like solid wood, you can choose your favorite species, stain color, and finish, along with any particular installation patterns you prefer.

Engineered flooring is an excellent choice for any area that sees a lot of dampness, humidity, and temperature changes, such as basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. It performs well under these circumstances and gives you a lifespan that can reach 30 years with proper care and maintenance. But it also protects you just as well from daily wear, with a top wear layer that protects against stains, scratches, and fading.

Unlike solid wood, these floors can be floated with a tongue and groove system that creates stunning results. This means these materials can be installed quickly and easily, and you can walk on them as soon as the process is complete unless you are using site-finished materials. Prefinished materials come with the stain and finish already applied, so the installation is the last step.
