Treat yourself to hardwood with engineered wood flooring

Do you love the look and feel of natural wood? Engineered hardwood is an economical alternative to solid wood flooring. Plus, it’s easier to install than solid hardwood.

What is engineered wood flooring?

Engineered wood flooring is built with an engineered plywood base and topped with a thick, durable veneer of beautiful, premium hardwood.

The sweet perks of engineered wood flooring

Engineered wood flooring is better with moisture than solid hardwood.

Wood expands and contracts with humidity and temperature changes. The engineered base of this product generally offers much greater stability than traditional hardwood in settings where there are extreme temperature fluctuations or less humidity control.

Engineered wood flooring tends to be less expensive than solid hardwood (comparing wood to wood).

The up-front cost of engineered hardwood is more affordable than solid hardwood. However, solid hardwood will last longer than an engineered wood floor.

Engineered wood flooring can be laid in custom patterns.

Herringbone, chevron, and parquet patterns in varying shades of rich wood. What’s not to love about that?

Engineered wood flooring can be manufactured in wider boards.

Because engineered wood is a composite product, you can find stylish, wide boards without the cost of huge, older-growth trees. Wider boards mean a quicker install time and a trendy floor.

Things to know about engineered wood flooring

How long will engineered wood flooring last?

Well-maintained engineered wood floors may last for 20-30 years. Some super-quality, durable floors can last up to 50 years, if the top layer remains intact.

How is engineered wood flooring installed?

Engineered wood can be installed with these 4 methods: staple-down, glue-down, glue-together, and floating (click-and-lock). Glue- or staple-down will keep your engineered wood floor from sounding hollow.

Which rooms in my house are not suitable for engineered wood flooring?

We don’t recommend engineered wood in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and any other high-moisture areas (for example, some basements).

How do I take care of an engineered wood floor?

Wipe up any spills immediately. Sweep regularly and use a damp mop instead of a very wet one. Use a hardwood cleaner occasionally to spiff it up again.

Can I install heat underneath engineered wood flooring?

Yes, you can in some cases. Check with your flooring supplier to see if the floor you’re considering will work. Engineered wood transmits heat better than solid hardwood.

What factors are important when choosing an engineered wood floor?

The hardness of the top layer.

A harder, thicker top layer will stand up to dents and scratches longer.

The density of the wood

A slightly softer wood with a bold grain will reveal nicks and dents less quickly than dense woods with smaller grains.

The amount of gloss

Floors with high gloss will show more marks compared to those with small amounts of gloss.
