New Eco-Friendly Options for the Green Consumer: simpleFLOORS Engineered Wood Floors vs. Solid Wood Flooring

Share Article

Engineered wood floors offer a premium-grade, durable solid wood veneer, typically pre-finished with the stain color and sealer already applied, bonded to less-expensive, often more-renewable wood components. Engineered wood floors have become more popular for consumers seeking an environmentally-friendly flooring choice because less solid hardwood is used in manufacturing the floors.

Engineered wood flooring can be installed using various methods over both plywood and concrete, making it a great flooring choice for basements and commercial interiors. Floating-floor installation is a popular method because the floor doesn’t have to be permanently attached to the sub-floor. The installer simply applies adhesive to the engineered wood flooring tongue-and-groove interlocking system and taps the board into place. The floating-floor method makes it easy and quick for DIY'ers and allows for mistakes to be fixed relatively easily.
