Engineered hardwood flooring and herringbone installation

Engineered hardwood flooring and herringbone installation

We get asked all the time if engineered hardwood flooring can be installed as a herringbone layout, and the answer is a definite yes. Read below to learn more about this installation.?

Importance of a professional installation

Herringbone layouts are complicated enough with the angles. When it's click-lock engineered, it becomes even more so.

Not only is that more labor-intensive and complicated, but it also creates more waste. So, while preparing, be sure to check to see any requirements for disposal.

What?s engineered hardwood flooring?

Come into our showroom if you haven't seen engineered wood flooring yet. You'll see stunning wood looks like Westside Grove-Monterey Oak by Mohawk's UltraWood Plus.

This type of hardwood comes in assorted colors, species, and textures. Engineered wood floors can also be refinished?the number of times depends on thickness.

Like solid hardwood, engineered floors last for decades.

Ideal for homes prone to leaks

Engineered wood flooring is more stable and better able to handle moisture. That makes them less prone to warping, cupping, and crowning.

From an aesthetic point of view, you?ll see knots, swirls, grains, undertones, and textures?all the things you'd expect from any hardwood.?

I live on the water, so it can get pretty humid sometimes. However, the floors look great and perform well!

Do the floors require special care?

You only need to dry-mop the engineered hardwood floors several times a week and vacuum once weekly. This is so sand and dirt?sharp and can scratch?don't embed between the planks.

It does handle water better, but no floor should be in standing water. So wipe spills as soon as possible.
