Engineered flooring bridges the divide between modern ingenuity and traditional beauty.

At Creative Granite Group, we work with all kinds of flooring, from traditional options like hardwood and tile to modern inventions like LVP and laminate. One type of flooring we love that straddles the divide between timeless beauty and modern ingenuity is engineered flooring. If you’re looking for a flooring option that provides the look and feel of hardwood without the limitations on location, engineered flooring might be just what you need.

Engineered Flooring in Columbia, South Carolina

Engineered flooring typically consists of three layers. The top wear layer, also known as the veneer, is made of a thin piece of real hardwood and is what gives the engineered flooring its attractive appearance. Options include classic hardwoods like oak, hickory, and walnut, as well as exotic varieties like bamboo and mahogany.

Hidden beneath the top wear layer is the core section, which is generally made from plywood or high-density fiberboard. This layer provides stability and also helps prevent warping and buckling, since the layers of core wood are applied in a cross-grain pattern. Below the core layer is the bottom layer, and this is typically made of the same type of wood as the core. The bottom layer adds balance and stability.

Engineered flooring is a great option for those who want the look and feel of real hardwood flooring at a more cost-effective price point or those who want to be able to continue the hardwood they have elsewhere into areas like their bathrooms or basements without worrying as much about moisture damage. However, it’s important to note that engineered flooring cannot be refinished as many times as hardwood flooring; the number of refinishes you can do will depend on the thickness of the top wear layer.

Our skilled team can advise you about how to properly care for your engineered flooring so that it looks great and lasts you as long as possible.
