It can be a challenge to design your home and trying to incorporate the ideas that you have in mind to create the perfect dream home in Vancouver. Using engineered flooring in home design simplifies the design process and the versatility allows you to create different looks for each section of the house that will suit the different members.

Here are some essential information that you should know about engineered flooring before you made the decision to use engineered flooring for your home design.

What are the materials used for engineered flooring?

Engineered flooring uses engineered wood which comprises of wood products that are manufactured by binding or fixing the strands, particles, fibers, or veneers or boards of wood, together with adhesives, or other methods of fixation to form composite materials.

What are the advantages of using engineered flooring?

Many home owners in Vancouver prefers using engineered flooring and here are some of the advantages as to why they use engineered flooring in their dream homes.

  • Superior in quality than traditional pure hardwood flooring, which is weak and can snap over time.
  • It is less prone to moisture damage as compared to hardwood flooring.
  • Hardwood flooring shrinks and expands when exposed to the heat and cold. This causes the installation to be a headache by all but the most skilled (and expensive) team. Engineered flooring does not have this expansion/contraction problem which makes it an easy task to install the flooring for your dream home.
  • It is cheaper and more wallet-friendly to use engineered flooring in Vancouver as compared to using pure hardwood.
  • It is the best choice of flooring for condominiums as the engineered wood can be glued to the concrete or it can be floated over the concrete slab.
