What is Engineered Hardwood?

When you shop with us, you’ll find a wide range of hardwood selections to choose from, including solid and engineered hardwood flooring options. Expansion and contraction can be an issue for homes in our region, but we can help you find a new floor that can counteract that natural tendency.


Solid hardwood floors feature characteristics that cannot be replicated by any other flooring option. It features a simple but time-tested construction that is usually three-fourths” thick. The thickness of the plank plays critical roles in your home including being a sound insulator. Solid hardwood’s simple construction lets you refinish to increase its lifecycle. When it comes to refinishing solid hardwood, you can only go as far as the tongue on the edge of the plank. Solid hardwood floors add value to your home because of its unmatched characteristics. Solid hardwood floors need to be installed in dry and cool areas of your home such as your bedroom, living room, or home office. Installation options include nail down and tongue and groove.


Engineered hardwood flooring is constructed with a modern design. These planks feature three to seven layers that are pressed together cross-grain generating a stable plank. Due to this layered construction, engineered hardwood is more stable. It can resist hardwood’s natural tendency to react to changes in moisture and humidity. The modern construction of engineered hardwood allows you to install it in more places around your home than solid hardwood. It is still not recommended for rooms like bathrooms and laundry rooms because it is still a wood product. Engineered hardwood floors can be installed in your home in unusual ways including floating floors, nail down, and tongue and groove.



Hardwood Flooring Installation

Hardwood flooring can be tedious to install so it’s no wonder that most homeowners opt for a professional installation. Since the average homeowners aren’t as handy with nails, hammers, and sanders, professional installation assures a seamless result. A professional installation means you won’t ever face the prospect of losing out on warranty coverage or having your new floor show wear before its time. Our onsite team of professional flooring installers can help you realize your hardwood flooring dreams with minimal inconvenience.
