Engineered hardwood flooring and kitchen installation

Engineered hardwood flooring brings an upscale look to a room and practical functionality. It is an ideal floor covering for a kitchen—folks in the Katy, TX, area shop for engineered wood planks at family-owned Katy Tile & Marble. We offer a great selection of trendy plank styles in many wood species, stain colors, and textures.

Plywood base

Engineered wood flooring has a base composed of several layers of plywood situated in different directions. Manufactured wood tolerates moisture because of this unique makeup, and spilled water is not a problem as long as it is cleaned immediately. In addition, engineered wood floors with an underlayment that includes a moisture barrier are placed beneath the planks when installed.

Surface layer

A layer of hardwood is positioned above the plywood base, and if this layer is thick enough, your new floor can be refinished once in future years if worn. With 100 percent natural wood on top, a manufactured wood floor is almost indistinguishable from a solid wood floor. With proper care, engineered hardwood floors have a lifespan of 30 years or more.

Versatile design

Usually, engineered wood planks are designed to click and lock together so the floor can float above the subfloor. Therefore, engineered wood flooring can be laid over cement and wood; sometimes, it can be placed over an existing floor. Engineered hardwood flooring will likely adapt to your needs regardless of room decor and project specifics.
