Engineered hardwood flooring for every home

Engineered hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for every room in your home, with options that fit your needs and preferences. Whether you need stunning beauty, outstanding durability, or exceptional lifespans, these floors offer characteristics you can use for years. Consider how these products fit your needs for a better flooring decision for your upcoming remodel of any size.

Comparing solid and engineered wood floors

In this flooring line, you have two primary products to choose from, and one may better fit your needs than the other. Engineered wood flooring is a great solid wood alternative in spaces that experience dampness and humidity. Solid wood offers a lifespan surpassing 100 years, as opposed to the 30-year lifespan of engineered wood. Engineered materials have a backing made of plywood layers, while solid wood is natural wood, through and through. In many cases, engineered wood floors offer a faster installation, with floating floor options that work well in various settings. Solid wood provides a more permanent solution for areas where the flooring will likely stay the same.

Site or pre-finished flooring?

Pre-finished engineered wood floors have many advantages, including the fact that they arrive finished. In addition, they have stain color, sealant, and finish already applied, and these surfaces can sometimes be more durable than site-finished equivalents. For instance, if you choose pre-finished materials, refinishing the surfaces for the first time will take extensive sanding. Site-finished wood flooring means sanding, staining, sealing, and finishing all happen in your home and require much more time and preparation. However, you'll have extended options for stain colors and finish types, especially if you choose textured features like hand-scraped or distressed. We'll discuss even more engineered hardwood flooring options once you select some specific features for your remodel.
