We’re happy to discuss the many advantages of engineered hardwood flooring for your Charlotte home.
Love the beauty of solid hardwood flooring, but finding the price tag a bit beyond your budget? There is a way you can get the luxury of hardwood at a price that might surprise you. Here at LJ Flooring, we offer engineered hardwood flooring that will give you the results you desire at a more affordable price than solid wood. There are even some advantages of this product over solid wood that could make it a great choice even if you do have a high budget.
Engineered hardwood flooring has a top coat in the same wood species offered in solid hardwood products, so the appearance is exactly the same and nobody needs to know you went with a budget-friendly option. The difference is that the layers below are lower-cost materials, yet every bit as durable and long-lasting.
The only downside is that while solid hardwood can be sanded down and refinished several times over decades of use, you only have a top layer that can have this done with engineered hardwood flooring. With proper care, however, you can still get a lifetime of service from engineered flooring. There are different price points with engineered hardwood flooring, so if having the option to refinish more times is important to you, look for a product with a thicker top layer.
Now for the plus side: not only is engineered hardwood flooring more economical, but it can also handle humidity and moisture better. It is less likely to warp, thanks to the stability the various layers provide. Our staff is always happy to answer any questions you may have, so you can make the choice between solid and engineered hardwood flooring, as well as which product, wood species, and features will give you the results you envision. We serve the Charlotte, North Carolina area with quality flooring products and unrivaled installation services, so you can enjoy years of performance from your new flooring.
