Home owners often look for ways to increase the value of their home. Even if you are not a home owner yet, you too may be looking at homes that increase in value. Maybe the kids have left for college and you are thinking of retiring to Florida. Maybe you purchased a home in a good area with a good school and you want to wait 10-20 years before selling it for a huge perceived profit.

Maybe you just moved into a new home and you want to keep your options open, especially if you work in a profession that travels around a lot. Whatever the reason, upgrading your flooring can provide great value to your living conditions, and to the value of your home.

At the point you choose to sell your home, past decisions like installing engineered flooring will only benefit your bottom line, as your home will be more structurally sound, more beautiful, and higher in value as a result.

How Engineered Hardwood is Better

Engineered flooring is a unique form of flooring that is not only radically different than other forms of flooring, but is better as well. You will be amazed at just how good engineered flooring is at tackling tough home owner conditions like water puddles that would harm other forms of flooring. This toughness and ability to last a long time is due to the specific process of creating engineered flooring.

Unlike other forms of flooring, which are mostly solid pieces fitted together, engineered hardwood flooring is made up of multiple pieces, each of which result in a stronger form of flooring that can stand up to a lot. It has a core layer of wood, usually hardwood or plywood. The top layer of engineered hardwood, however, makes it indistinguishable from other forms of flooring, using hardwood veneer.

Hardwood veneer means that you will receive all the benefits of installing engineered hardwood flooring, while still ensuring that your flooring looks great day in and day out. With such superior crafting methods, you can bet that your floor will last, looking beautiful, for years, if not decades.

When you have visitors over, all they will see is the veneer top and they will complement you on your hardwood flooring. Of course, you will know that the true value of your flooring is not what visitors see, but what they do not see. That is the power of engineered flooring.

The Tangible Benefits of Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered flooring is resistant to two things that can harm regular flooring: moisture and heat. This is why so many home owners who like in wet climates, humid areas, and more, purchase and install engineered flooring in their homes.

Adding value to your home, especially if it increases in value compared to your neighbors’s homes, can be the difference between selling your home quickly and for a profit, and not being able to. If you have a home that is resistant to heat and moisture, both of which can necessitate the installing of a new floor, which can be very expensive, you will have a greatly valued home to sell, or keep.
