Mississauga Engineered Hardwood Flooring Offers Perks You Need To Know About

Engineered hardwood flooring is an innovative flooring product comprised of layers of wood which are bonded together using adhesives. As a result, it is an incredibly beautiful and hardwearing product, which is difficult to distinguish from hardwood and can be installed virtually anywhere. If you are considering engineered hardwood in Mississauga, there are a number of perks you need to know about.

Engineered Hardwood Is Incredibly Durable

One of the greatest advantages of engineered hardwood flooring is its durability. Although engineered hardwood is susceptible to scratching and denting because the top layer is made of hardwood, overall, it stands up extremely well to daily wear and tear. While many people view small scratches and dents as added character, if you are bothered by imperfections, engineered hardwood can be sanded and refinished several times, much like hardwood. Depending on which wood species you choose, engineered hardwood may also be scratch and dent resistant. For example, because oak, maple, and hickory are all harder woods, they tend to resist scratches, dents, and signs of wear, making them a durable option.

Engineered Hardwood Is Moisture Resistant

Unlike traditional hardwood, engineered hardwood in Mississauga is moisture resistant, which means it does not buckle or warp when exposed to dampness or humidity. As long as it is installed with a proper subfloor with a moisture barrier, engineered hardwood can withstand conditions which most floors cannot tolerate.

Engineered Hardwood Can Be Installed Practically Anywhere

Because it is moisture resistant, engineered hardwood can be installed virtually anywhere, including basements and kitchens. It is a carefree solution for a variety of spaces since you do not need to worry about it warping or buckling. It is a popular choice for below grade installations which are often impacted by humidity and temperature changes as well as over concrete slab or radiant heating systems.

Engineered Hardwood Is Available In Wide Planks

One of the biggest trends in flooring right now is wide planks and mixed-width flooring. Engineered hardwood is available in a wide range of plank sizes, including planks as large as 7 ½ inches. Thus, whether your style is modern or contemporary, you can achieve your desired look with engineered hardwood flooring.

Engineered Hardwood Can Be Installed In Several Ways

Engineered hardwood flooring can be installed in several different ways and is incredibly easy to install. The float method is ideal for customers who opt to do the installation themselves because it is easy to install over a subfloor provided that it is dry and even and necessitates very little materials such as glue and nails. The glue or staple methods are best left to the professionals, as they tend to be more challenging than the float method.
