Engineered hardwood flooring gives your Denver home the beauty of wood with the eco-friendly features and budget-friendly prices of a laminate.
Few things are able to add an element of natural beauty to the style of a home like wood floors. No matter the size or stain, wood floors are a popular choice for all types of homeowners. For those of us who love the appearance of wood floors but are looking for a more reasonable price and more durability, engineered hardwood flooring from Floor Coverings International can be a great choice for your Denver, North Carolina home.
Engineered hardwood flooring has many benefits over solid plank hardwood flooring, one of the most notable being that they are able to be placed in rooms that would not be a good choice for solid hardwoods. Basement flooring, for example, is not a good place for hardwoods due to the fact that moisture can often seep up through the concrete foundation. While solid plank hardwood would warp and bend, engineered hardwood has a more moisture-resistant backing that enables it to withstand this moisture, allowing you to bring the warmth of the outdoors into a chilly basement space.
In addition to basement flooring, another benefit of engineered hardwood flooring is its affordability and sustainability. Solid plank hardwood flooring uses much more wood than engineered flooring since engineered hardwood flooring is a thinner plank of solid wood that is overlaid on top of a durable, moisture-resistant compressed wood mix, usually made of high-quality plywood. Engineered hardwood flooring can even be sanded down and refinished, although not as many times as solid plank hardwood.
