Floor Coverings International Western NC serving the greater Asheville & Hendersonville area carries a wide selection of engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwoods are a great flooring solution because they combine the look and feel of hardwood with an easy installation process. This flooring option is a superb choice for almost any room in your home or business including living rooms, dining rooms, waiting rooms, and bedrooms.
Engineered hardwood planks are made from multiple layers of solid hardwood and plywood. The number of layers can range from about 3 to 12, and the more layers a plank has, the more sturdy it will be. Each plank is finished off with a hardwood veneer. You can choose from a wide range of light and dark stains, as well as varying finishes including high gloss and matte.
Perks of Engineered Hardwood
Engineered hardwood flooring is a practical choice for high-traffic areas thanks to its durability. You can even refinish your hardwood floors once or twice during their lifetime. The layers underneath the solid wood finish provide durability and strength to make your investment last longer. This multi-layer design also makes engineered wood flooring resilient to light moisture in bathrooms or kitchens.
It’s a good idea to keep in mind that engineered hardwood can’t be refinished as many times as solid wood. Eventually, you will sand through the layer of solid hardwood and need to replace your flooring. If you plan on installing your floors somewhere that will see a large amount of scuffs or scratches, solid hardwood might be a better option for you.
