Solid & Engineered hardwood flooring keeps winning the hearts of homeowners and renovation companies in Vancouver. With new technologies at hand, its appearance and quality of performance are only improving over the years. If you are still wondering why Engineered Hardwood floor is the number one choice among consumers, we will list just a few features of this fantastic type of flooring.
First of all, engineered hardwood floor is a 100% natural product made of nothing but wood. It consists of the top layer of solid wood and a few layers of wood and plywood glued together. So in case you are allergic to synthetic materials, engineered hardwood floor should certainly be on your list of flooring options.
Various in species, colours, finish, engineered hardwood floor is never considered to be boring or limited. It looks and feels identically to solid hardwood.
Due to the unique structure, engineered hardwood is known for its incomparable durability and high suitability. Let us take a closer look at what it really means.
Even being exposed to higher levels of heat and moisture, engineered hardwood floor demonstrates excellent stability. It does not shrink and expand dramatically (like hardwood does) with fluctuating temperature and moisture level.
Engineered hardwood floor can basically be installed in any area and on various sub floors, including over radiant floor heating, concrete floor, damp areas such as basements, etc. It is all just a matter of method of installation – nail down, glue down or floating glue-together method.
Depending on the thickness of the top layer (the top layer has to be at least 3mm thick), engineered hardwood floors can be refinished to refresh the look from a couple to a few times.
Engineered wood flooring is a worthy investment into your home that surely adds financial value and luxurious look.
