Choosing engineered wood flooring has its benefits over alternatives. Firstly, they are a sustainable choice, as the plywood cores at the heart of them are made from recycled sources. They are also less expensive alternatives to hardwood flooring and come in many different styles and colours. For example, you can go for a very elegant look and install Versailles panels, a contemporary chevon or herringbone or keep it a little more simple with long plank flooring.
In regards to durability, you will be happy to know that engineered wood flooring can last for up to 30 years when maintained correctly. You can also sand them, assuming the thickness is large enough. The recommended depth is 2 mm. If you have underfloor heating, installing engineered wood flooring can help you save money on energy costs because it responds well to heat retention. And lastly, they are super easy to install and can be done by DIY experts; however, it is recommended you use a professional flooring installer.
