Engineered Wood Flooring Dallas
Have you always wanted wood flooring but it’s just not in your budget? Are you afraid of it getting damaged and your investment being wasted? Well, the good news is there is a floor type that mimics hardwood, but is less expensive and more difficult to damage. It’s called engineered wood flooring Dallas!
The Perks of Engineered Floors
- Protected from common flooring problems
- Appeal of true hardwood
- Less expensive than hardwood
Creation is the most unique aspect of engineered wood flooring Dallas. The floor type is layered, making it tougher for water and other moisture types to seep through to the core. It is topped with a wear layer which protects the wood veneer. Nadine Floor Company's engineered wood is covered with an aluminum oxide top coat that keeps the veneer safe while also giving it an authentic look.
The wood veneer is made of actual hardwood. Therefore, engineered wood planks resemble hardwood. Unless you are hosting a flooring expert, there is a very good chance that your guests will not be able to tell the difference between engineered hardwood and solid hardwood. That’s one of the beauties of high quality engineered wood.
Nadine's popular wood veneers include birch, hickory and red oak. Each veneer offers varying widths. You can take a look at each wood species by visiting the “Engineered Woods” page on our website. You can also visit our store for samples and to benefit from a wholesome look.
Engineered hardwood flooring has the look of hardwood and it’s cheaper than hardwood. How can you go wrong?! The price difference is not extreme, though engineered will typically cost a few dollars less per square foot than real wood. Furthermore, you won’t have to pay for any refinishing or sanding down the line.
The remaining layers…
Engineered wood flooring Dallas contains a plywood layer, also known as the core. Plywood is the thickest layer. It protects the plank by preventing moisture from passing through. It also gives cushion to the plank, making it more comfortable to walk on.
Some engineered floors will have another wear layer at the very bottom. We’ll detail our specific version over the phone or in-store with you.

How does engineered wood flooring compare to other floor types?
We already covered traditional hardwood. It is the purest form, but is most vulnerable to moisture and general wear and tear. Hardwood always has the option of being refinished, which essentially means recreated. Though, that does cost money.
Laminate flooring and vinyl plank flooring are layered; however, they don’t have the quality of real hardwood like engineered does. Thus, they suffer in appearance in comparison. Vinyl plank ranges quite a bit in price, but it is known for being affordable. It is tough to damage, though anyone would be able to tell the difference between it and hardwood/engineered hardwood.
Laminate looks more authentic than luxury vinyl plank; it does not match the authenticity of engineered or solid hardwood. When comparing the four, it’s simplest to couple laminate and vinyl plank, and engineered and solid hardwood. Each couple is similar in advantages/disadvantages and in pricing. Still, engineered hardwood stands as perhaps the premier choice given its realistic appearance and strength against flooring threats.
