Did you know that engineered wood flooring has certain perks that solid hardwood cannot offer? Would you like to? Well, that’s the topic of our post today and we hope that you’re able to glean from it.

Engineered Wood Flooring Installation

Unlike solid hardwood flooring, engineered wood floors can be installed anywhere in any room of your home. Not only does it make a good choice for basement areas, where solid wood can never be placed, but the process is faster and less burdensome than solid wood installation.

Engineered wood floors are also a little more resistant to water than solid wood floors are. Since their top layer is real wood, there is still a certain amount of care and maintenance involved. However, the core and backing layers are not real wood and can therefore take a bit more abuse than real wood can.

Engineered Wood Can Be Refinished

One of the main perks to solid hardwood floors is that they can be refinished several times in their lifetime. Well, engineered wood can be refinished as well! The only difference is, with engineered hardwood, only the top layer (underneath the protective wear layer) is real wood.

For this reason, an engineered floor can only be refinished once or twice before it will need to be replaced. While not as hardy as solid wood, it will certainly last longer than some other materials.
