Many homeowners choose to install engineered wood flooring over wood flooring and hardwood laminate flooring. It is higher quality flooring than laminate yet cheaper than authentic wood floors.

Installing engineered wood flooring will add value to your home in the future. Laminate hardwood flooring is more of a “sunken cost” as far as flooring is concerned. You will not be able to get your money back as easily as it’s not seen as being as highly valued in the real estate market.

Engineered flooring is real hardwood veneer glued securely onto the HDF layer. This gives it the exact look that you would receive from a 100% hard wood floor on the surface. It has a genuine piece of hardwood on the top layer, not a photographic layer of hardwood as it is with laminate flooring. Therefore, you get the real wood look.

Hardwood Flooring vs. Engineered Flooring

Authentic wood is still considered the best kind of flooring to buy, but it is also the most expensive. Engineered floors will not last quite as long as true hardwood floors because refinishing engineered flooring can eventually be an issue. Engineered hardwood flooring has an authentic hardwood flooring layer that is glued to the HDF layer. That hardwood layer is fractions on an inch in thickness! Therefore, it is only possible to sand and refinish engineered wood floors one to three times, depending on the brand of flooring. Naturally, this shortens the overall life of the hardwood flooring. You should plan on refinishing your hardwood floors every 5 to 7 years.

Installing engineered flooring is cheaper than installing true hardwood floor and it does have real wood on the surface! It’s an extremely popular choice for many homeowners because it allows people to enjoy the beauty of seeing authentic wood and save money, too!
