Advantages & Disadvantages
The primary benefits of engineered hardwood flooring are that it is stable, moisture resistant, and cost-effective. The multi-layered composition of engineered hardwood flooring gives it greater stability and less intensive upkeep than solid hardwood floors. Its unique construction also means that engineered hardwood flooring is resilient against moisture, and it will not swell or warp in humid conditions. Engineered hardwood flooring is also less expensive than solid hardwood floors, making it an excellent choice for a hardwood flooring project on a budget.
However, one drawback of the composition of engineered hardwood floors is that the layer of wood veneer can be quite thin. With an especially thin wood veneer layer, it is not recommended that you have engineered hardwood floors re-sanded or refinished more than a few times.
We have access to a wide range of colors, styles, and species of engineered hardwood, so you’ll surely find a product that suits both your project’s needs and your personal aesthetic. Our partnerships with nationally-recognized manufacturers allow us to provide the best quality products and top brands at budget-friendly prices.
