The Benefits of Engineered Hardwood
Tuesday, August 1, 2017
Are you looking for a flooring option that can provide you the look and feel of hardwood, but are not committed to traditional hardwood?
Have you heard about Engineered Hardwood?
Engineered hardwood is a specialized wood flooring that is not quite traditional hardwood flooring, but looks the part. Engineered hardwood floor has a real hardwood top which gives you the aesthetically pleasing look of hardwood. This hardwood top provides a durability strong enough to withstand the most active children and most loving dogs. Messes and claws would be challenged!
Now, you may ask what the difference is between traditional hardwood and engineered hardwood. The simple difference is that the while traditional hardwood flooring is solid hardwood, engineered hardwood is not. Depending on the engineered hardwood that is chosen, there is a different core on the inside.
If you’re looking for a flooring that is durable with the environment like; drastic changes in temperature, moisture issues and humidity...engineered hardwood is the way to go. While traditional hardwood flooring is definitely durable, engineered hardwood is better in turns of temperature and moisture issues. Because traditional hardwood is fully wood and susceptible to humidity and moisture like wood is, the engineered hardwood core makes it more durable to these changes.
If you’re not sold yet, maybe consider the environmental aspects that you would be supporting.
With traditional hardwood flooring planks, it tends to be cut with a saw. Cutting trees with a saw creates sawdust which is not usable with the flooring. With engineered hardwood flooring, it is typically sliced. By slicing the tree, most of the wood of the tree is used and cuts back on the wasted wood made from saws.
So let’s recap:
You get an aesthetically pleasing hardwood looking floor.
Has a good durability.
Withstands temperature changes better than hardwood flooring.
Better for the environment.
