Engineered hardwood
flooring
 blends the easy
installation of laminate floors with the durability of real hardwood flooring.
This flooring choice has a thin layer of finished hardwood on top (called the 
lamella)
with layers of unfinished hardwood underneath (called the 
core or substrate).
The middle layer, laid crossways, adds extra strength.

Engineered hardwood flooring has a variety of
installation methods: nail-down, glue-down and floating. When installed,
engineered hardwood flooring needs no finishing and can be sanded to remove
scratches and dents. For homes in Ocean Isle Beach or points between Wilmington
NC and Myrtle Beach SC, this flooring option is a great choice for high traffic
areas such as living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms. Engineered hardwood
flooring can even withstand areas with light moisture such as kitchens and
bathrooms, though like all wood floors, it should never be used in rooms prone
to flooding.

When choosing your engineered hardwood
flooring, you’ll find that it comes in as many styles as there are species of
hardwood. Some of the most popular choices of engineered hardwood flooring
include oak, hickory, maple and bamboo. No matter what your style, Floor
Coverings International of Ocean Isle NC can help you find the engineered
hardwood flooring that’s just right for you.
