Engineered hardwood flooring blends the easy installation of laminate floors with the durability of real hardwood flooring. Engineered wood floors are available in as many styles as there are species of hardwood. Some of the most popular choices include oak, hickory, maple and bamboo.
This flooring choice has a thin layer of finished hardwood on top (called the lamella) with layers of unfinished hardwood underneath (called the core or substrate). The middle layer, laid crossways, adds extra strength.
Engineer hardwood flooring can be installed a number of ways: nail-down, glue-down, and floating. Engineered wood floors are well-suited for high traffic areas, such as living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms. It can even withstand areas with light moisture such as kitchens and bathrooms.
There are many styles of engineered hardwood flooring to choose from. Call Floor Coverings International so we can help you find an engineered hardwood floor, or any type of flooring, that’s just right for you. We even offer free in-home consultations.
