engineered hardwood floor. Wednesday , March 07th , 2018 - 06:55:06 AM
Okay, maybe that is a bit of an overstatement, but engineered hardwood floors definitely make installing hardwood floors a much more manageable situation that the experienced DIY person can handle. Staining and finishing are very detail oriented tasks that not everyone can pull off.
Having spent 25 years as a flooring contractor and the past 4 years as a retailer of both engineered and solid hardwood flooring, I have found that there are a lot of misconceptions about both types of floors.
Although natural hardwood floors have been around for a long time, modern engineered hardwood flooring has become a more popular option. The way engineered flooring is manufactured gives it characteristics that are not inherent in natural hardwoods. It is also much less expensive to install in your home, and it can even be used in places where moisture is a problem.
