So what makes engineered SPECIAL?
Compared to standard hardwood, there’s not a lot of difference really. Engineered floors are basically all wood, but the structure of the plank is layered with plywood topped with the veneer of the wood of your choice making it more durable and long-lasting compared to other flooring products.
Because of the layers, you can use engineered in areas where you can’t use hardwood planks, specifically in areas that are prone to moisture.
And THAT makes a huge difference. Homeowners being able to put wood anywhere in your home, including in areas that are prone to rot. This benefit you can only get from engineered floors.
Among other reasons
You probably know by now the characteristics of engineered floor solutions. Because it is pure wood, it has the look, the feel and will have all of the other characteristics of hardwood floors. In some cases, you may opt not to refinish your floors, depending on how thick the wood veneer top is.
Engineered planks from closeout sales will most likely have very thin veneer tops giving you little wood to work with and refinishing those types will only reveal the layered whitewood below the veneer.
Short Term and Long Term Savings
Another huge advantage of using engineered solutions for your floor is the cost. When you are only using the top veneer of expensive wood, you’ll get a much better price than using solid hardwood planks. You’ll be doing the environment a favor and as well as your pocket.
Engineered floors can be a long term investment. If you are planning to buy a house it is best to spend some extra cash in getting good quality engineered flooring.
Though you can save a lot by getting thin veneer planks, you will find yourself needing to refinish the floors in 10 years or so and because of the thin veneer. You may actually end up replacing the entire floor. This can pretty much eat up the money you saved in the first place!
