The basics of durability

Engineered wood flooring offers impressive durability traits for all. These floors feature a layered construction that's more resistant to dampness and humidity. We can even refinish these floors, just like solid hardwood flooring.

You should know that species also play a massive role in your floor's durability. Some are harder than others, making them better for your busiest rooms. Then, you can add sealant and finish for the perfect results.

The basics of installation

Acclimation must come before the installation of these materials for the best results. Without it, your floors could warp, crack, or split after the hardwood flooring installation is over. Acclimation takes about one to three days, depending on your specific choices.

A professional installation is the best way to protect an investment of this size. And it ensures your manufacturer's warranty is not voided as well. We'll give you all your details once you choose a specific material.
