You can Choose Engineered Wood flooring Under Some Conditions
Why more and more people choose Engineered Wood Flooring? Most customers think that there are more colors and designs to choose. Unlike solid wood flooring and vinyl flooring, engineered wood flooring is made of top layer and HDF, and the top layer is real wood as appearance and protection. In fact, some areas, we can only use engineered wood flooring.
Some flooring cannot be used in high-moisture areas. Engineered wood flooring can handle the moisture because of its construction. The HDF makes the type of engineered hardwood flooring extremely resilient to surface impacts, and criss-cross construction results in greater stability that helps to prevent gaping, cupping or crowning of the flooring even when moisture levels are a little high.
When you are going to install engineered wood flooring, you can put them on the existing and also eliminate the cost if removing the old floor. Although it is highly recommended existing flooring be removed and new floor be installed directly over your subfloor.
Engineered wood flooring can be installed over a radiant heating system. Solid wood flooring will not stand up well to the temperature and moisture fluctuations that are inevitable with in-floor heating. Engineered wood flooring is stability to handle this condition. Generally speaking, high-quality engineered flooring can be the ideal selection.
