5 Benefits of Engineered Hardwood Floors

Home Improvement

If the flooring in your house needs an update, or you’re building a new house, then you have many different options available to choose from. The type of flooring you choose will sometimes be influenced by what room of the house it’s being installed in, but usually it’s just determined by your own personal preferences. Engineered hardwood flooring in Rocky Point is a durable flooring option. Its strength and versatility broaden the number of rooms where you might be able to consider installing hardwood floors. The various finishes and colors add style and warmth to any room, and you’ll enjoy the benefits that only engineered hardwood floors can provide.


Sometimes engineered hardwood flooring can be confused with other flooring options such as laminate. They are, in fact, real hardwood floors, but they’re engineered to provide greater strength and durability. Solid hardwood floors are made from planks that are cut from a log in one solid piece. Engineered hardwoods are built with lots of pieces of hardwoods that are mechanically pressed together to create layers. These layers are then glued together, so the board is comprised entirely of hardwoods, but the difference is how they’re cut.


Because the engineered hardwood planks are mechanically pressed together, they are strong. The top layer is also manufactured with the finish on it. Because the protective coating is applied during the manufacturing process, it has a thick layer that will be durable for the life of the floor.


If you choose to install engineered hardwood floors in your home, the toughest part will be choosing the planks to use. There are an abundance of choices including the type of wood, the size of the plank, the color, and the finish. A wide variety of hardwoods are used to create flooring. You can easily find both domestic and foreign wood varieties. In addition, the planks are cut to varying sizes to help you achieve the look you want in your home. The beauty of engineered hardwoods is that they come pre-finished. When you install traditional hardwood floors in your home, you have to wait until they’re installed and sanded before you can apply a stain. It can be tricky to get just the right color of stain that you want because of how the wood might accept the color. The benefit of an engineered flooring system is that you get what you see. The planks will look the same in your house as they do on the sample that you choose from.


Wood is a natural material that contains various amounts of moisture. Regular hardwood floors have to be left at the job site for up to a couple of weeks in order to help the wood acclimate to the new surroundings. As the moisture content in the wood fluctuates, the wood flooring expands and shrinks. Once installed, extreme changes in temperature and humidity can cause unsightly gaps to appear in your flooring. Engineered hardwood isn’t as susceptible to the changes in moisture content. You save time on your installation not only because the finish is already included, but because you don’t have the same waiting time before you can get started.


Engineered hardwood floors are easy to maintain. You’ll enjoy a durable, high-quality finish, so all you need to worry about is regular dusting and mopping. Clean excessive spills up immediately and that will also help to prolong the beauty and lifespan of your new floors.

These are just some of the many benefits that come with installing engineered hardwood flooring in Rocky Point. You’ll be satisfied when you choose a flooring that is durable and will last for years to come.
