Why should I get engineered wood flooring in my home?

Engineered wood flooring is a type of hardwood flooring that’s made of multiple layers of timber, stuck together with a layer of hardwood lamella. Engineered wood differs from solid wood as its material is more durable and stable, but appearance wise they both look the same. 

The flooring type is able to withstand moisture and high-temperature levels, that makes it an ideal long-lasting flooring solution for any home and family. Additionally, if you’re looking for a flooring solution that’s able to tolerate underfloor heating then engineered wood flooring is a great option for you.

Can be sanded and refinished

Engineered wood flooring can in fact be sanded, just not as much as solid wood flooring, but it depends on the thickness of the lamella top layer for how many times you can re-sand the flooring in its lifetime. Re-sanding and refinishing engineered wood flooring brings a new lease of life to the appearance of the floor, it’s a wonderful option if after a few years you feel like flooring is tired, this gives you the flexibility to change up the appearance of your floor for many years.
