Choosing the best engineered hardwood flooring can feel overwhelming, especially if you have a busy and active home with pets, children, or both. Many homeowners ask about scratch-proof options, and we're happy to share this information about what you can expect with engineered hardwood floors.

Enjoy scratch resistance you can live on

The first thing you should know is that different types of flooring offer various benefits, especially those with layers. Engineered wood floors are constructed in layers and bonded under high pressure and heat, yielding excellent performance in every space.

The protective top layer of your engineered wood floors comes in various thicknesses, so you can customize the level of protection you want and need, with thicker layers offering more protection against all forms of daily wear. It's also crucial to know that different species provide different hardnesses, so some will be more durable than others in your busy home.

Finish coats, which are applied on top of the wear layer, also affect the durability of these floors and can enhance the appearance. Consider options like oil-based, polyurethane, water-based, and wax, to name only a few, to decide which engineered wood flooring finish is best for your household requirements.
