Engineered flooring 'is a good choice in difficult climates'

Posted on 8th Oct 2010 @ 8:32 AM

Engineered flooring is a good choice of wooden floor for people who live in locations with unpredictable weather.

Gerald Vander Pyl, writing for the Calgary Herald, said that the variety of flooring open to homeowners these days is extensive, with everything from hardwood flooring to tiles available.

While each type of flooring has its advantages and disadvantages, engineered flooring is a wise selection in areas where temperatures tend to fluctuate.

"Engineered hardwood combines the beauty of real wood with a layered construction that is more suitable for difficult climates," Mr Vander Pyl stated.

He went on to add that one popular finish for this type of flooring is the antique look.

Rob Palazzi, of Palazzi Bros Carpet and Tile, told The Windsor Star recently that the reinforced construction of engineered flooring means it can be laid in any part of the home, regardless of what kind of subfloor is in place.
