Engineered Wood Flooring is the Topic of a New and Informative Blog on the Conklin Bros. Website

The Educational Article Explores the Differences between Engineered and Solid Wood Flooring

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Conklin Bros., a company that offers a huge selection of top quality Carpet, Area Rugs, Fine Wool, Hardwood, Luxury Vinyl Tiles, Laminate and Porcelain tiles, has just posted a new and informative blog on its website that compares and contrasts engineered wood flooring with solid wood flooring. The Conklin Bros San Jose flooring experts were motivated to write the educational article, because they realized that many people do not know the difference between these two types of popular flooring.

In addition, in order to connect with as many of their customers as possible, Conklin Bros San Mateo is now on Google Plus; this helps the company stay in touch with their clients through the social media site.

As the new blog notes, there are definite pros and cons to having a solid wood floor. The advantages include a reduced risk of the wood being damaged, as well as greater durability. Solid wood flooring, the blog noted, lasts for years and is available in many grains, colors and textures. On the flipside, solid wood flooring can crack and warp when exposed to moisture or humidity, and it does not come in the wide range of styles that are available for engineered wood floors.

The "What is Engineered Wood Flooring?" article also takes an in-depth look at the advantages and disadvantages of an engineered wood floor. Because it is available in many types of thicknesses, and because the top layer is attached to strong and budget-friendly under plies, it is even more durable than solid wood flooring.

"Because of the construction process, engineered wood is less prone to water damage and warping than solid wood, making it a better choice for areas of high moisture," the blog explained, adding that with engineered wood, additional underlayment is unnecessary, although homeowners may still want to have one just for the additional structural stability or height concerns.

"The drawback of an engineered wood floor is the veneer strip can be relatively thin, making the floor susceptible to damage and refinishing the floor once or twice on average before the floor has to be taken out and replaced."

Since the Bay Area is prone to getting a lot of rain and high humidity, the article suggests that homeowners strongly consider an engineered hardwood floor. This is also true for people with kids and/or pets, who tend to be harder on flooring. However, the article also points out that solid hardwood can be a great option for local customers, especially for upstairs bedrooms and lighter traffic areas of the home.
