Engineered Wood Flooring Installation
Engineered wood floors are real wood floors that are manufactured using multiple layers of wood veneers. Engineered wood floors will expand and contract less than solid wood flooring during fluctuations in humidity and temperature. All varieties provide increased durability over traditional wood, but buying engineered wood with more core layers and a thicker veneer offers the most durability.
Engineered floors can be nailed or stapled to a wood subfloor, or glued down to a wood or concrete subfloor. While this type of flooring can be sanded and refinished, it cannot be done as many times as solid wood flooring. For professional engineered wood floor installation Canton, IL — contact us.
Solid Wood Flooring Installation
Solid wood flooring is exactly what the name implies: a solid piece of wood from top to bottom. Solid wood can be used in any room that is above grade (above ground). The ultimate issue with solid hardwood is that it shrinks and expands depending on the humidity in your home.
The company who installs solid hardwood floors must have enough experience to leave the right amount of space for hardwood’s natural expansion and contraction. The professional Canton wood floor installers at Bro’s Flooring Plus know this and will complete your solid wood flooring installation Canton, IL correctly.
