Choosing the right flooring can be difficult as there are many options to choose from. One of those choices is Engineered wood flooring. These types of flooring offer rugged durability and phenomenal scratch resistance. Most engineered flooring products are best when glued down. today we will explore some of the pros and cons of engineered wood products.
Pros: 1. Engineered products are extremely durable and do not scratch easily. 2. Engineered flooring comes in many different widths, sizes and colors. 3. You can easily get samples of the finished product for matching purposes. 4. Installation is fast and the floors are ready for furniture the moment they are installed.
Cons 1: Often very difficult to remove. 2:Does not sand and refinish ( some products claim to be sand-able, We don’t recommend sanding these type floors) 3:The color is not infinitely changeable like real Oak flooring
