There are many reasons why you should choose engineered hardwood flooring over other flooring types. Mainly, when done right, engineered flooring is superior to other floor options. These are some of the main reasons why engineered flooring is superior and what exactly makes it so impressive.
Engineered for perfection
Solid hardwood flooring has always been a popular choice, but it’s not without its problems. Many times, solid hardwood has imperfections that can result in problems even a short amount of time after installation. However, engineered hardwood flooring is specially crafted to prevent these problems from occurring, which results in a higher-quality end product.
Can install in many places
One major benefit when you choose engineered hardwood flooring is that you can install it in more places than solid hardwood flooring. You can install engineered flooring on any level of your home, including the basement. Engineered hardwood is also perfect for installation in apartments and homes
More resistant to movement
Engineered hardwood flooring is specifically designed to be more resistant to movement after installation. Because of its core layers, it is more resistant to temperature and humidity changes. Solid hardwood doesn’t have any reinforcement, which means it expands and contracts easier as the temperature and humidity change. This results in damage such as cracking or cupping. But engineered hardwood flooring prevents this damage as it is less likely to move in the first place.
Can refinish many times
One of the biggest misconceptions about engineered hardwood flooring is that you can’t refinish it. However, you can actually refinish some engineered flooring as many times—or more—than solid hardwood. Depending on the wear layer thickness you choose, you can refinish your engineered flooring up to 7 times!
