Engineered Hardwood Flooring
At Touchwood Flooring in Edmonton, we appreciate the beautiful options and flexibility an engineered hardwood floor can offer. Engineered hardwood flooring is still a hardwood – it is constructed of layers (using plywood or hardwoods) with a solid top layer of hardwood.
When to Choose an Engineered Hardwood Floor
Engineered hardwood flooring has become well liked and accepted as a great alternative to solid hardwood. It is now commonly sold in Alberta. Some of the reasons people choose engineered wood flooring:
- Recommended for wide planks due to better dimensional stability with an engineered floor.
- Textures, like wire brushed or hand scraped flooring, are only available as a pre-finished engineered hardwood.
- Best for installations where solid wood floors are not warrantied such as in-floor heating and basements.
- Engineered hardwood typically performs better than a solid wood floor in Edmonton’s dry climate (the hardwood species also makes a difference).
What to Consider Before Buying Engineered Hardwood
- Find out what the thickness is, of the not only the overall floor
Can You Refinish Engineered Hardwood?
Depending on the thickness of the wear layer, some engineered hardwood floors can be refinished a number of times, making them a long lasting, excellent option. It is important to do your research and ask questions as not all engineered wood flooring is created equal. Sawn engineered hardwood performs best in our climate and can be refinished.
