Engineered Hardwood Flooring Myths


[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]It is a common myth that Engineered Hardwood Flooring is vastly inferior to solid hardwood flooring. The truth is, Engineered Hardwood flooring is often comparable, if not better than solid hardwood flooring! For whatever reason, there are a number of myths about engineered hardwood flooring that we should clear up:

Engineered Hardwood & Refinishing

It is a common myth that Engineered Hardwood Flooring cannot be refinished. This is a huge myth in the flooring industry. Quality engineered hardwood flooring can often be refinished sometimes as often as many times as solid hardwood flooring. The key is the quality of the engineered hardwood flooring you are looking at.

Engineered Hardwood & How it Looks

Another engineered hardwood myth is that it looks comparably worse than solid hardwood flooring. This is a huge myth because engineered hardwood is constructed by placing a section of solid hardwood or bamboo on top of substrate. This means that there is a layer of solid hardwood that is visible to anyone who sees your flooring, meaning that it will not look marginally different from any solid hardwood flooring. The quality of engineered hardwood floor will determine how it looks in comparison to solid hardwood.

Engineered Hardwood & Where to Lay It

One of the biggest things that is disappointing about solid hardwood flooring is that they cannot be laid below grade; meaning they cannot be laid in a basement. However, with engineered hardwood floors, you can lay them below grade. This means that engineered hardwood can be used in any location solid hardwood flooring can be used, but engineered hardwood can be used in a basement and solid hardwood cannot.

Choosing what type of flooring you want for your home or office can be difficult. However, it is important that you know that not everything you hear about engineered hardwood flooring is true. Be sure to ask a flooring expert about all of your flooring options.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”sidebar-9″][mk_blog_carousel count=”5″ cat=”12,13″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
