Engineered Hardwood Flooring

 

Why Choose Engineered Hardwood Flooring From Diverse Flooring?

 
Engineered Hardwood is a great alternative to solid hardwood and laminate flooring. Engineered wood floors were initially brought into the market to be used on the first floor of a home built on a concrete slab, or the basement. While basements are still optimal areas to use engineered hardwood, the technology has evolved a great deal over the last two decades and engineered hardwood flooring is now acceptable to use in just about any room!

Pros of Engineered Hardwood

 

Versatile

Engineered floors can be glued to a wood subfloor or concrete slab. This allows this type of flooring to be an optimal choice for basements. Modern technology allows for engineered hardwood to now be used in any room on any floor.

Easy To Maintain

Engineered hardwood floors can be easily cleaned with either a recommended wood floor cleaner or a vacuum cleaner.

Real Hardwood

Engineered Hardwood is still hardwood, which can be an important “must-have” on a homebuyer’s checklist. Having hardwood in your home can also add to your home’s value.

Long-lasting

When properly cared for, engineered floors can last an extremely long time in your home.

Things To Consider About Engineered Floors

Engineered or Solid Hardwood?

When choosing a hardwood floor, the most important decision is whether to invest in an engineered hardwood option or a solid hardwood option. Engineered flooring’s construction allows it to be installed anywhere in the house, from the top floor to the basement.

Moisture Levels

Hardwoods can naturally retain and give off moisture. Though engineered hardwood is more resistant to expansion and contraction due to its cross-ply construction, it is still a wood product. It is best kept in rooms with 35-55% relative humidity.

Photosensitivity

Both engineered and solid hardwood can be susceptible to photosensitivity, or the wood changing colour due to UV light from the sun. To help avoid this, consider periodically moving around furniture and area rugs to avoid patchy discolouration.
