Got Hardwood? Taking a look at Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered Hardwood flooring Calgary
While natural hardwood planks remain a sound investment when renovating your Calgary home, there are many benefits to taking a look at engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwoods offer greater versatility in where they can be installed, how they can be installed and more importantly, how long they last under regular use.

Boldly Go Where Hardwoods Haven't Gone

Due to the layered construction of engineered hardwood flooring, you are not as limited with where to install it as you would be with solid hardwood. After consulting with your flooring specialists at Calgary Flooring Superstores to ensure you get the appropriate quality, you can install real hardwood in engineered form in the following circumstances:

  • Basements- unlike solid hardwoods that are extremely sensitive to moisture, engineered boards are more resistant to expansion and contraction. An added benefit is the profile is lower which may make a difference in the headroom.
  • Over radiant heat systems- this flooring transfers heat better than solid wood so with care in choosing your underlay, you can enjoy real wood with the benefits of radiant heat.
  • Renovations- save money on removal and disposal of old flooring by installing your engineered hardwood over existing, stable flooring material. With a wide range of thicknesses available, it's also easier to make transitions between different floor types than with solid wood.

Install your Engineered Hardwood Flooring YOUR Way!

Engineered woods offer four different methods of installation:

  • Floating floor with tongue and groove to click together.
  • Secure the engineered planks to the existing flooring with staples or nails.
  • Glue it down as you would a tile-type floor where nails or staples can't be used.
  • Adhere the boards to one another with glue to create a floating floor that is a solid unit.

With so many installation options, an experienced DIY homeowner can save a bundle by taking on the project themselves.

Erase the Ravages of Time

Even with the best of care, a growing Calgary family can cause wear and tear on real wood flooring. Unlike laminates, engineered hardwood flooring can be refinished and restored to look like new. With the heavier wear layers allowing for sanding away dents and scratches, your engineered flooring can easily last a lifetime.

With a wide range of styles and finishes, engineered hardwood flooring delivers real wood with many options. Stop in to visit or contact your flooring specialists of Calgary Flooring Superstores today to see for yourself!
