Engineered Wood Flooring
Engineered hardwood flooring delivers the same beauty of natural hardwood flooring but with greater versatility. The top layer of the material is solid hardwood while the base layers are designed to give the material greater stability and resistance to moisture. The result is a flooring that can be refinished just like solid hardwood but can be installed in basements and humid climates where hardwood flooring is not recommended.
With the popularity of engineered hardwood flooring, you’ve also got a wide range of options. You’ll find your favorite domestic hardwoods as well as many imported and exotic woods that can give your home or office unique beauty that will set it apart.
