Why Engineered Hardwood Flooring?


 
Interior Design
Wood flooring can be difficult to install in any location with lots of moisture and humidity, like Rocky Point, New York. Rather than using traditional hard wood flooring however, there is a better option for those who still want the beautiful look of hardwood flooring but are worried about their wood floors in humidity and heat: Engineered Hardwood Flooring. Engineered Hardwood Flooring is a unique product, made up of slices of different types of wood with a top layer of hardwood. As the top layer is thin, sometimes 1 cm thin, the rest of the plank is made of hardwood, plywood, recycled wood fiber, or other wood products. Because of this, the planks are environmentally friendly, as well as less expensive, and more importantly, doesn’t expand or contract with humidity and weather changes. This also makes it possible to install in all floors of your home. With traditional wood, installing planks of traditional wood on the basement floor is impossible because of the increased humidity and chance of water damage. When choosing engineered hardwood flooring in Rocky Point, New York, or elsewhere, it’s important to think about what type of installation would be required for your home. Because engineered hardwood is easier to install than traditional hardwood flooring, there are a few options to choose from. You can choose to nail down engineered hardwood, if it will be placed over plywood. Another option is to glue down over plywood or concrete floor, and the last is to “float” the wood over the subfloor (whether concrete or plywood). Though all of these types of installation can technically be done by anyone, ask a professional before attempting to install flooring in your home. Floating the wood and gluing the wood is the easiest for those DIY professionals, but nailing down will need to be done by a professional, and especially one in your area that knows what will work best for your flooring and home. Though engineered hardwood flooring can be installed in any room of the home, including the basement floor or the second floor or above, steer clear of installing wood in rooms in the home that will expect moisture. A bathroom, a kitchen, or other rooms with continued moisture or humidity may make it difficult for you to keep your floors looking good. Though engineered hardwood is more moisture and humidity resistant, it isn’t as resistant as another type of flooring, like tile flooring, but still is able to be installed over heat sources, or over concrete subfloor. Now, what are the benefits of engineered hardwood vs. traditional hardwood? With traditional hardwood flooring, hardwood tends to warp with any heat, humidity or moisture. After a lot of time with heat or moisture applied to a hardwood, these floors can warp, split, or swell, which can lead to an expensive installation of new wood. With engineered hardwood, because of the layers of wood beneath the hardwood top, warping is prevented; engineered hardwood is extremely more stable than hardwood, but will still give you the beauty and feeling of a traditional hardwood floor. Another benefit of engineered hardwood is the price. While engineered hardwood can fall anywhere from $3 to $18 a square foot, many hardwoods can range from $8 to $20 a square foot. All in all, engineered hardwood is a great option for those worried about damaging their wood floors—engineered hardwood has a lot of great qualities and will provide a beautiful look for a home for years to come. For hardwood flooring in a humid area, look no further than engineered Hardwood Flooring for Rocky Point, New York homes. engineered hardwood flooring rocky point
