engineered hardwood room

Searching for a versatile yet durable flooring option for your home in the greater Austin, Westlake area? Engineered flooring may provide the flooring value and aesthetic appeal you desire.

Engineered flooring combines the installation ease of laminate flooring with the resilience of a traditional solid wood floor. Here at Floor Coverings International Austin, we offer a wide range of styles for you to choose from.

What is Engineering Flooring?

An engineered floor is made up of several plywood layers, with a thin layer of finished hardwood on top that can be refinished over time to provide a long-lasting vibrant appeal for your home in Austin. Engineered flooring can have varying amounts of inner core ply layers, but 3-12 multiple ply layers are preferred. Typically, the more layers the more resilient the floor becomes.

 

What are the Benefits to Engineering Flooring?

In Austin engineered flooring can be found in a variety of homes because there are numerous benefits to this versatile flooring:

Environmentally friendly: Requires less solid wood material in the manufacturing process
Durability: Engineered floors are often more resilient than other types of flooring including laminates, vinyl, and carpet
Water Resistance: Higher resistance to moisture levels as compared to solid wood flooring
Versatility: Due to water resistance and durability, engineered flooring can be placed in a wide range of environments including garages and basements.
Lower Costs: Initial costs, in addition to lower upkeep expenses, keep the overall costs of this flooring option low.
