Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring is perfect for today’s modern home. It has the gorgeous irreplaceable look of hardwood without all the high maintenance and problems that hardwood flooring is known for. Engineered hardwood flooring is real wood. But it’s wood that has been treated with an acrylic resin that seals in the beauty of the wood while making the flooring much harder and more resistant to damage. If you have always wanted hardwood floors but you thought they were impractical because you have kids, or pets, or always have people coming and going these are the hardwood floors for you. Engineered hardwood floors are 300% more resistant to spills and damage than traditional hardwood floors.
