Most homeowners covet the timelessness and aesthetic appeal of hardwood floors, but the material does not come without its challenges. Hardwood can expand and contract during temperature changes, and does not react well to humidity. Arlington, TX and the surrounding area is no stranger to seasonal fluctuation, making traditional hardwood a risky proposition for property owners in DFW. For a material that provides similar advantages to traditional hardwood, but without the hassle, choose engineered hardwood. Benefits include:
- Increased Stability
- Low Maintenance
- Moisture Reduction
- Warping Resistance

Our staff is both professional and knowledgeable and can help you through the selection process, however long it might take.

What is the Difference Between Engineered Hardwood Flooring and Traditional Hardwood?
Engineered hardwood is constructed with several layers, with the interior comprised of more stable wood than traditional hardwood. The top layer is a thin in dimension, but provides the aesthetic appeal found in natural hardwood. The process of its construction is more complex than its more authentic counterpart, but the visual presentation is quite similar. The manufacturing cost is similarly expensive, though the installation process is less costly. Check out some of the differences below:
- Concrete Compatible: Can be installed over concrete
- Handscraped Finish: Can be applied with a handscraped finish
- Multiple Layers: Consists of 3-5 layers
Traditional hardwood is more natural than its engineered counterpart, but it also is more threatening to the environment. The sawdust produced from hardwood board cutting accumulates to a significant amount of wasted material. Additionally, trees used to build hardwood floors grow at a slower pace than those used to build engineered flooring. If you are environmentally conscious, engineered floors will be of greater appeal to you. We look forward to discussing the differences with you in further detail.
