Engineered Wood Flooring for Staten Island & New Jersey that’s as Versatile as it is Beautiful

Engineered Wood is a Gorgeous Flooring Option that Can Boldly Go Where Solid Hardwood Cannot

Engineered wood flooring is for Staten Island & New Jersey homeowners who want hardwood floors in places that aren’t suited for hardwood floors. If you’ve never done a wood flooring project, that might not make much sense. So we’ll explain.

Solid hardwood floors are one solid piece of wood all the way through. As such, solid hardwood shouldn’t be installed in certain areas or situations. Things like concrete, radiant heat, and below-grade sites are the worst enemies of solid hardwood because they either dry it out or infuse it with moisture. Either way, you’ll run into BIG problems like gaps, buckling, and warping.

This is where engineered wood flooring saves the day.

Obstacles, areas, and conditions that pose problems for solid hardwood flooring are the exact situations engineered wood flooring was created for. Engineered flooring has a surface made of hardwood and several layers of plywood underneath. Unlike solid hardwood, this plywood base can easily handle expansion and contraction, thereby preventing damage to the hardwood surface.

This hardwood-plywood hybrid design allows engineered wood floors to boldly go where solid hardwood floors should NEVER go. In basements. Over radiant heat. On top of concrete. Engineered wood flooring can handle them all. This means that, yes, you can have beautiful wood flooring in the places you didn’t think possible.

Real Hardwood In All The Right Places

Engineered wood flooring’s gorgeous appearance is due to its top layer of real hardwood veneer. As such, engineered wood flooring comes in ALL the latest colors, trends, species, grades, and plank widths you would find with its solid hardwood flooring counterpart.

Whatever kind of flooring style or finish you want to grace your Staten Island & New Jersey home, with engineered wood flooring, the sky is the limit! Want rustic hand-scraped hickory? Wire-brushed walnut? Distressed oak? Smooth maple? They’re all possible. Literally anything solid hardwood can do, engineered wood can do (some might even say it does it better)… and not even the most-trained eye can tell the difference!

A Modern Engineering Marvel

Engineered wood flooring is more than meets the eye. Under that beautiful hardwood are ultra-durable layers of moisture-resistant plywood. While hardwood fibers run parallel, plywood fibers run crosswise, making it dimensionally stable, and allowing it to better handle expansion and contraction. The plywood layers prevent damage to the hardwood veneer.

The upshot is that engineered wood flooring can be installed in all the areas solid hardwood floors can’t – below-grade areas, over concrete, on top of radiant heat, and so on. The truth, though, is that engineered wood flooring is also an excellent option in areas where you CAN install solid hardwood floors. Engineered wood flooring is as versatile as it is beautiful.

Cost-Efficient Installation

Material-wise, engineered wood is slightly less expensive than solid hardwood. The real price difference is in the installation.

Solid hardwood floors must be nailed or stapled to a subfloor – period. Engineered wood flooring, however, can be installed via glue, nails, or the floating-floor method. These various installation methods can allow you to save serious dollars.

Floating-floor installation is ultra-popular because of how quick, easy, and cost-efficient it is. Instead of directly attaching to the subfloor, the planks interlock with each other and “float” on top of the subfloor, createing a tight fit that can better handle expansion & contraction than “fixed-floor” installation methods.

Added bonus: Since floating-floor installation requires fewer materials, it’s not only cost-efficient, but an environmentally friendly way to install engineered wood flooring in Staten Island & New Jersey. Win-win!
