Have you always wanted to have hardwood flooring in your home? It can be very beautiful, but often the cost is a discouraging factor for homeowners to install it. Fortunately, there are alternatives that can be just as beautiful only at a fraction of the price. One of the best alternatives to use is engineered flooring. This type of flooring consists of a thin layer of quality hardwood attached to cheaper plywood. While this only gives you a thin layer of hardwood, it will be hard to tell the difference without examining it closely.
Besides the much more affordable price, engineered flooring also gives you more flexibility. You can use many different types of methods for installing this type of flooring while hardwood flooring needs to be installed using either nails or staples.
No wonder so many homeowners are opting to go with the cheaper, simpler option when it comes to beautiful floors.
