One of the most essential determining factors for flooring type is the level of the floor on which it is to be installed. Solid wood flooring should never be used beneath ground level due to the effects of humidity, which can cause it to warp and crack. Engineered hardwood floors can be used in just about every level of the home, including those that fall beneath ground level. If you want your flooring to last you a lifetime, these floors perform better in humidity-controlled environments.
Another important factor to take into account is the material from which your subfloor is made. Is it wood or is it concrete? Engineered hardwood flooring is ideally placed over a concrete subfloor. Alternatively, it can be used for remodeling projects, in which case this San Diego flooring can simply be floated directly over the existing floor – such as vinyl. This negates the need for all the mess and costs associated with ripping up an old floor.
