Along with traditional wood floors, we also have engineered hardwood flooring in Paradise Valley that will be perfect for your home or office!
What is engineered hardwood? Engineered hardwood is a type of flooring that is made up of many layers. The top layer is thin and is primarily for the look or desired appearance. The layers underneath are synthesized for durability. These layers can be made of plywood or other type of unfinished wood, something that is durable without regards to aesthetics. This means that you can have the appearance of whatever kind of wood you want while maximizing strength!
The Benefits of Engineered Hardwood Flooring?
While pure hardwood is a great type of flooring, it’s missing the versatility that’s crucial in certain floor plans. This leaves engineered hardwood as the only wood floor option for those areas. An engineered wood floor is versatile and can be placed over practically any subfloor material you have with ease. Some other advantages include:
- Engineered hardwood was initially developed for basements and other high-moisture areas. It’s designed to survive!
- They work great as a transition between two types of floor. You don’t need transition strips or other unsightly options.
- There are several ways of installation such as gluing and nailing available, depending on the overall wood thickness.
