Thicker Engineered Flooring

Floor Contractor San Diego such as San Diego Flooring is your best choice for hardwood flooring installation or restoration. Engineered Flooring now has a wide plank that is 1/2 inch thick. This new engineered flooring innovation is a great option because it can be refinished multiple times with sanding or refinishing. It's just like hardwood floors. The new flooring planks are 5mm thick and can withstand daily abuse from pets, children, and even walking in high heels. There are two sizes available: 3 1/4"x 1/2" and 5"x 1/2". This veneer product is 7 ply+, which gives it more stability than products that have fewer layers. Engineered Hardwoods are the thickest veneers in the industry, which allows them to be sanded two or three times as regular hardwood flooring.

The Benefits of Thicker Engineered Hardwoods -

  • Look great on wide planks
  • You can install concrete or wood subfloors
  • Floors that last a long time are made of thicker planks.
  • For a faster installation, planks are longer.
  • Higher quality and innovations lead to higher quality
  • Highly durable finish containing aluminum oxide, with a warranty of 35 years
  • Low prices: $2.79 for 3 1/4 inches x 1/2", and $2.99 for 5 x 1/2"

The new engineered hardwood flooring with a wider plank is more water-resistant and therefore more stable. Traditional engineered flooring was designed to resist moisture and can be laid on top of a concrete subfloor. You can also lay it over plywood by nailing the sheet down.

San Diego Flooring offers professional-engineered floor installation and refinishing. This includes dustless engineered flooring to remove marks, gouges, and other marks as well as removing the existing finish and stain. Refinishing engineered flooring could not be done before the 5mm thick veneer. The " dustless sanding" method reduces dust from sanding and keeps indoor air clean. For a clean environment, we offer Low VOC or No VOC products in our floor finishing process.

More wood floor stability

Do you have a basement that you would like to install hardwood floors? Hardwoods are not recommended due to moisture concerns. These days, hardwoods are no longer recommended. Basements can now be fitted with the 5mm Engineered Flooring. You can refinish the heavy veneer as many times as hardwoods, so they can last for many years. They are also made from engineered hardwoods which makes them more resistant to moisture, and therefore more stable.

Prefinished thick 1/2" Engineered Hardwoods are available in a variety of stain colors, widths, or finishes. For a no-obligation, free in-home consultation, we will show you samples and measure your rooms so you can get a quote. We can install thicker Engineered Flooring over concrete or wood subfloors. We can prepare concrete floors for you and apply a moisture barrier or adhesive with a moisture barrier.

Cost comparison

Engineered Hardwoods are typically more expensive than real hardwood floors, but some people prefer hardwoods. However, Engineered Flooring is a good choice to save money and increase durability. These floors can be installed in places that hardwoods cannot, and can be sanded multiple times throughout their life. They are beautiful and come in many styles.
