Hardwood floors are great because they add value through beauty and functionality. However, they are wood, and as such are subject to expansion through changes in temperature and moisture.Introducing engineered hardwood floors! The benefit to this type of flooring is that you can install them anywhere because unlike solid wood flooring, which expands and contracts with the change in humidity, especially in places like basements, and sub-ground level rooms, engineered wood floors do not expand and contract nearly as much, and therefore are able to be installed in such places.Also engineered hardwood can be installed with a variety of processes: it can be glued, stapled, or floated. This provides more convenience for the home owner who may not have the time or tools to install them with one process or another, and can opt to use whichever process is most convenient at the time.At Academy Carpet in Colorado Springs we have a wide variety of engineered hardwood floors.
