Engineered wood flooring in Middlebrook is real wood flooring. At Horwich Carpets, customers sometimes question if engineered wood flooring is real wood, all wood or as good as solid wood. The answer to all is, yes. For some purposes, like kitchens and baths, it’s better than real wood because it doesn’t expand and contract. Therefore, it’s less likely water can seep through the joints. A moisture barrier should be put down first, but engineered wood can then be used even in basements. Solid wood flooring will expand in the heat and humidity and the joints may separate just enough for moisture to seep through to the underlayment and dirt to accumulate. Lay the two types of floor side by side and you likely will not be able to tell the difference.
Engineered wood, just like solid wood, will last a lifetime. During the lifetime of your floor in Middlebrook, engineered wood flooring can be sanded and refinished just like solid wood. That will only be necessary one or two times. With care, you may not even need to refinish it at all. Whether you choose solid or engineered wood, only clean with a manufacturer recommended cleaner. Engineered wood floors, just like solid wood, absorbs sound, is warm underfoot and is hypoallergenic. You will find a wide selection of woods, finishes and colours. Wood floors are timeless so you could change your decor from Victorian to ultra-modern without changing the floor.
