Pros and Cons of Engineered Hardwood Flooring
If you’re looking for that classic look and feel, you may want to consider engineered hardwood flooring for your Santa Clarita home. When deciding whether engineered wood flooring is for you, here are the basics to keep in mind.
Engineered hardwood flooring is intended to reduce the moisture problems associated with conventional hardwood
Its layers block moisture and provide added stability to your floor
Engineered flooring will not swell or warp, making it very low maintenance
Choosing engineered flooring is considered more environmentally-friendly than traditional hardwood
Veneer is sliced rather than cut with a saw. This process produces no sawdust, which means that all of the tree’s wood can be used
Comparable to solid hardwood in terms of cost, engineered floors are still considerably more expensive than laminate, tile, and carpet
Veneers that are too thin will prevent sanding and refinishing opportunities that may double the lifetime of the floor
Some veneers are so thin and poorly made that they can prematurely warp or fade.
Core layers must still be fashioned from high-quality wood.
