When planning your custom home design, evaluating your flooring options is one of the first steps. When selecting flooring, there are plenty of choices, but as experienced Calgary inner city home builders, we know that hardwood flooring has become our homeowners preferred choice. Take a look at our custom home builder tips for making selections to learn more about the selections process and get ready for your selections.
When it's time to decide the best hardwood option for your dream home, there are two options: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Although both options have advantages, engineered hardwood flooring is highly popular and preferred by experienced Calgary home builders. This option is considered one of the best alternatives to conventional wooden floorings, and here you can read some of the advantages of choosing engineered hardwood flooring for your Calgary custom home.
Engineered Hardwood Floors are Resistant
Engineered hardwood floors are made of natural wood and plywood. Their top and bottom layers are made of wood, and the center layers are made of plywood. This flooring option comes in a variety of species such as Oak, Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, Acacia, and Tigerwood. That means that with engineered hardwood flooring you have many options to create the right look for your new custom home.
One of the main features is that engineered hardwood floors have a stable core. This makes engineered wood flooring an excellent option for rooms that are subject to moisture, temperature changes or humidity. Engineered hardwood floors can be installed anywhere, above the ground level, below the ground level or even at ground level. In kitchens, bathroom, basements, on radiant heat, or concrete slabs. This is the reason most of the Calgary infill home builders are using it.
Adding Value and Durability to your New Calgary Home
Engineered flooring can add value and structure to your home. Another advantage is that they can be sanded and refinished several times throughout the life of the floor. They have ecologic benefits, and they are not difficult to maintain, therefore increasing the life of the floor and the value of your home.
