Desirable, Ageless Look

Arguably one of the best-looking flooring types, homeowners have aspired to have real wood flooring in their home because of the timelessness, durability, and value it brings. Available in a variety of stain colors, wood species, and plank widths.

Highly Durable

A pre-finished, factory-applied durable coating gives engineered hardwood a long-lasting finish. This allows for a thicker, harder surface able to withstand tougher treatment. Plus, it can go in places you can’t put solid hardwood, like basements, concrete sub floors, and over radiant heating systems.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

Sweeping and light mopping are all that are generally needed to remove dirt, dust, and pet hair, making engineered hardwood a great choice for high-traffic, busy homes.
