WHAT TO CONSIDER
Benefits of Engineered Wood Flooring
  • Real wood species
  • Increased durability using urethane aluminum oxide finish
  • Install over most subfloors on any level of your home
  • Superior dimensional stability compared to solid wood flooring
  • Resistant to seasonal expansion and contraction
  • Enhanced indoor air quality – reduced allergens and dust
  • Increases home value
Board Widths - Do you prefer the traditional narrow 3” strips which offer the illusion of more space or a wide plank – 5” to 7” – which could impart a more rustic look? Or you might choose a style that mixes three different widths. Of course, there is also parquet with its distinctive geometric design that is more suited to a formal space. What do you prefer?

Wood Species - Wood species vary in durability as well as grain patterns and color. Some of the most common species used in flooring are oak, maple, hickory, and cherry due to their hardness. Exotic woods like mahogany, acacia, and Brazilian cherry aren’t as durable, but are prized for their striking appearance. What appeals to you?

Color - Hardwoods run the gamut in color – from blond to black - depending on the species and the finish. What do you like? What would enhance your décor?

Texture - You can buy brand new wood that has been antiqued, adding timeworn character to your room. Perhaps you’d prefer distressed and hand-scraped wood that will disguise heavy use over the years and, again, give your floor an appealing timeworn appearance from the moment it’s installed. Yet many people want that shiny new modern look. What tone are you wanting to set?

Hardness – If you have a busy household with pets and kids, you might want to consider the hardest wood species possible. Hard species like red oak will withstand wear and tear, while softer species such as pine would tend to show scratches.

Finish – Manufacturers choose a finish to not only protect the wood’s surface, but to imbue the floor with color and luster. These factory-applied finishes make it possible for manufacturers to offer amazing warranties as finishes such as urethane aluminum oxide make your new floor stand up to decades of wear and tear.

Engineered hardwood is appropriate for any room in your home except, perhaps, for full baths and laundry rooms. Pet friendly? Moderately – keep pets’ nails trimmed to avoid scratching the floor, clean messes immediately, and lay a mat under water dishes to minimize spills which might cause moisture to pool on your wood floor. However, engineered hardwood is durable and with preventative care and proper maintenance you can keep your new floor looking good for years.
