New Thicker Engineered Flooring

San Diego Flooring is the best Floor Contractor in San Diego and restoration to install hardwood floors. Engineered Flooring is now available in a wider plank, measuring in at 1/2" thick. Engineered flooring can be refinished many times using sanding and finishing, just as hardwood floors. These planks can be used for daily abuse by children, pets, or just walking in high heels. You can choose from two sizes: 3 1/4"x 1/2", or 5"x 1/2". It is a 7-ply + veneer product, which means it has greater stability than products with fewer layers. Engineered Hardwoods are the industry's thickest veneer, and can be sanded up to 3 times just like regular hardwood flooring.

Advantages of Thicker Engineered Hardwoods

  • These planks are very attractive and wide.
  • Can be installed over concrete or wood subfloors
  • Flooring that is thicker will last longer.
  • Planks have a longer length to facilitate installation.
  • Superior quality through new innovation
  • Extremely tough finish, containing aluminum dioxide with a 35-year warranty
  • Low prices. $2.79 for 3 1/2" x 1/2" and 2.99 for 5"x 1/2"

Our engineered hardwood flooring has a wider plank and is, therefore, more durable and stable. Traditional engineered floors can withstand moisture and be laid over concrete subfloors. It can also be used over plywood by nailing it down.

San Diego Flooring offers professional, engineered floor installations or refinishing. This includes dustless, sanding the engineered floors to remove any blemishes, gouges, or other marks. Also, the current stain and finish can be removed. Refinishing engineered floors was impossible before the thicker 5mm veneer. The " Brushless Sanding" method is a great way to reduce dust and keep indoor air clean. For a clean environment, we also offer No VOCs in products during the flooring process.

Wood Floor Stability:

Are you looking for hardwood flooring in a basement? Hardwoods are not recommended because of moisture problems. The days of hardwood floors are gone! The new 5mm Engineered Flooring makes basements a great candidate for these wide plank flooring options. They can be refinished just as often as hardwoods. The veneer is heavy and can be refinished many times. Because they have engineered hardwoods they are more durable and stable.

However, some people prefer hardwoods. New Engineered Flooring, which is 1/2" thick, is a great option to save on costs and increase durability. They can be used in places where hardwoods can't. And they can be sanded many times during their lifetime. There are many style options available, and they are simply beautiful.
