Have you ever thought of getting wood floors in your home, only to be discouraged by the estimates provided? Wood is a beautiful material to use for flooring, but it also comes with a price tag to match. So, what alternatives are there? Have you considered engineered flooring? It consists of a thin layer of wood glued on top of plywood of high quality. This way you can have the look of wood flooring without the price tag, and on top of that, it is easier to install. Wood flooring needs to be installed by nailing or stapling it into place. Engineered flooring, on the other hand, can be installed using a variety of methods.
You do, however, need to be careful when you try to repair scratches in engineered flooring. Since the actual wooden layer is quite thin, deep scratches might not be repairable, since they go all the way down to the underlying plywood.
