Best Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Best Engineered Hardwood Flooring by Harper Floors
Engineered Hardwood flooring is constructed with authentic real wood veneer and manufactured core backing that creates stability, uniformity, and resistance to changes in temperature and humidity. This “engineered” core of our best engineered hardwood flooring allows for wider and longer planks while providing the flexibility of being able to install hardwood floors in areas where moisture may tend to creep up, like a basement.
More About Engineered Hardwood FlooringWhen shopping for Engineered Hardwood floors, the thickness of the wood veneer and finish type are key things to note. One unique advantage is the ability to repurpose your floors years later; the thicker the veneer, the higher the number of re-sands and re-finishes.
Regarding finish type – natural oil finishes focus on protecting yet enhancing the natural grain of the wood, while urethane and lacquer focus on durability and simple maintenance while enhancing wood texture and feel. In turn, natural oil finishes require re-coating every 3-5 years to maintain its luster and wear resistance.
Engineered wood floors are a great choice for basements and rooms with radiant heating systems because they're made from layers of wood, not just one solid piece. This reduces the risk that your floor will expand or contract when exposed to fluctuating temperatures/humidity levels!
The veneer layer is what you see when walking on one of our best engineered hardwood flooring. It’s the part that provides visual appeal and contributes greatly to its durability. The core layer of our best engineered hardwood flooring is made of “Multi-ply,” the more plys in this type may have less shrinkage and expansion over time because they're thicker than other types with fewer plies per square inch - so even though it costs more initially there is a good possibility it will eventually come back some savings through improved longevity!
Our best Engineered Hardwood flooring was created to preserve the authenticity of hardwood with added durability to accommodate busy lifestyles and withstand years of heavy traffic. Undoubtedly a worthwhile investment and a practical care routine – cleaning up spills, sweeping often, mopping with hardwood specific care products – will keep your floors protected and stunning for years to come.
