Engineered Flooring

Engineered Hardwood Flooring Installer in Long Island, New York.

Engineered floors offer the perfect balance between the elegance of a beautiful hardwood floor and the affordability of a laminate floor.  An Engineered Floor still has a solid hardwood surface but is backed with 3 or 4 layers of plywood or HDF (high density fiber) underneath the top layer.  The hardwood surface of your floor will still be real genuine hardwood and have the same look and feel you love with traditional hardwood flooring.

Besides being more affordable than solid hardwood floors, engineered wood flooring is also a more environmentally friendly choice to floor your home.  Engineered flooring uses approximately 3-4 times less wood than traditional hardwood flooring. If you want the elegance of hardwood, but you just can’t stomach the environmental impact of having to cut down trees for your floor, then engineered flooring becomes an obvious choice.

Engineered Flooring is great for all areas of your home and can also be installed in high moisture areas of your home, like the basement, bathroom or on a concrete subfloor.

Hardwood Flooring Tip: Have you ever heard of a Janka hardness test? The Janka hardness test measures the force required to embed a .444-inch steel ball to half its diameter in a given species of hardwood. It is one of the best measures of the ability of a hardwood species to withstand denting and wear. The Janka hardness test is a great way to choose a wood flooring material that will stand up to your intended use.
