Let's start by saying that engineered hardwood flooring is real wood flooring, not an image pasted onto the core material. When you look at the surface of engineered wood flooring, you are looking at the real wood species that you selected. A lot of consumers do not know this about engineered flooring, and it can cause some to avoid buying it. If you choose, say, walnut flooring in engineered form, the surface of that flooring is true, authentic walnut.
A third reason why when it comes to hardwood flooring, Bradenton homeowners should consider engineered flooring as it can be installed below grade. This is important for homeowners who are thinking of installing wood flooring in their basements, or those whose homes who have large areas of the foundation below grade (below the surrounding land surface). Solid wood flooring should never be installed below grade, or in areas where moisture may be an issue. Engineered hardwood flooring, however, can be installed just about anywhere in the home, because it resist moisture much better than solid wood flooring.
